Wait. Isn't 'Peter the Great' or Pyotr Veliky is the name of the real-life Kirov-class battlecruiser serving as the flagship of the Russian Northern Fleet? What happened to it in the ROTOR universe?

Well, a lot of things could have happened to that particular ship in the many decades prior to the Russia/ECA conflict. Not really an important detail, but I liked the name and since the ROTR Russians seem to have aircraft carriers acting as flagships for each of their various fleet, it seemed fair to have that name for one of them.

Well, the game is set about a third of a century into the future. Plenty of time to design and build a new batch of battlecruisers, if they were so inclined.
Some big ships to go with all those big tanks of theirs.

Still under research. You can't just plot a satellite with a mirror into orbit and aim it at the closest solar panel. Well, you can but it's about as useful as nipples on armour.
Anyway, Wiki: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space-based_solar_power

Description

Since the inception of ESA's famous Solaris energy project, high-ranking Russian officials have heavily criticised it for its possible use as a highly devastating orbital weapon and missile defence. While much of the criticism at the time was in no small part motivated by the fact that a self-sufficient Europe put an end to the long-standing fossil fuel deals that kept the Russian economy going, the alleged military potential of Solaris turned out to be more than just a slanderous conspiracy theory as early as 2046, when the Russian aircraft carrier 'Peter the Great' got melted to slag by a pillar of sunlight striking down from the sky without warning in the Baltic Sea. In addition to these short, concentrated bursts, European commanders can also experiment with a longer, broader solar saturation to turn entire areas into cooking wastelands for extended periods.
