  1. >Admiral Kuznetsov, launched in the mid-1980s, is an unlucky ship. It has spent most of its 30-year life tied up in port undergoing repairs for various mishaps that have occurred on the rare occasions it has gone to sea. **And when it does sail, it is always escorted by a tugboat.**

    Well that’s embarrassing. If the Russian’s only aircraft carrier is barely functional, I wonder what the performance of Russian military equipment is actually like across the board.

  2. It should be noted that this carrier is the model for the new carriers the Chinese are building. Based upon her sister ship, which was sold to the Chinese.

  3. That ship is unlucky. Last year it had a crane dropped on it. This year it’s on fire…

  4. I blame Russia for this.

    Oh.

  5. >A major fire broke out aboard Russia’s **only aircraft carrier**, the beleaguered Admiral Kuznetsov, while undergoing repairs at a dock in the northern port city of Murmansk early Thursday morning.

    Wow, I would have thought they would have many more than one after everything that has been in the news about Russia.
