We discuss the design of a Cr:LiSAF laser system capable of generating ultrashort, 90-fs Fourier-transform limited pulses with a peak power of 8 TW. Using chirped pulse amplification and flashlamp-pumped Cr:LiSAF amplifiers this system incorporates a regenerative amplifier and three additional double-pass amplifiers with increasing aperture up to 25 mm. The temporal performance as well as the spatial beam quality are discussed in detail. We discuss extension of this system to the Petawatt power level
