Gangut (Russian: Gangut) was both the lead ship of the Gangut-class battleships of the Imperial Russian Navy built before World War I and the last of her class to be completed. The Ganguts were the first class of Russian dreadnoughts.

She was named after the Russian victory over the Swedish Navy in the Battle of Gangut in 1714. She was completed during the winter of 1914-15, but was not ready for combat until mid-1915. Her role was to defend the mouth of the Gulf of Finland against the Germans, who never tried to enter, so she spent her time training and providing cover for minelaying operations. Her crew joined the general mutiny of the Baltic Fleet after the February Revolution and joined the Bolsheviks in 1918.

She was laid up in 1918 for lack of manpower and not recommissioned until 1925, by which time she had been renamed Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya (Russian: Oktyabrskaya revolyutsiya: October Revolution).
