The infamous Kirov Airship is a class of heavy rigid zeppelins carrying high-explosive bombs used by the Soviet Air Force of the Gil Universe. The Kirov is a Soviet icon and one of the most feared units in the Axis arsenal. A handful of these zeppelins can destroy a base; the ones armed with 50 megaton bombs can destroy entire cities with a single blow. Unlike its predecessor, however, Soviet engineers included "Gastroburner" engines which could be activated, burning a highly volatile gas giving it a brief boost in speed. the WWIV Kirov is very similar to the GWWIII one, right down to its famous shark mouth markings on the nose.
