Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov rusted beyond repair

https://www.uawire.org/russian-aircraft-carrier-admiral-kuznetsov-rusted-beyond-repair



Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, which is currently the only Russian aircraft carrier in service, contrary to the intended repair, "broke" even more in a year. Judging by satellite images published by the Chinese publication Sohu, there has been no repairs done on the warship yet. However, in one a year, its deck has rusted significantly so that it became noticeable even from outer space.

Satellite images show that there is no real progress in repairing the admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, but part of the deck closer to the stern has rusted significantly in less than a year.

"We were surprised to see how quickly the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov rusted. This repair of the Russian ship seems to have ended with a serious corrosion of the upper deck. If this continues, the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov may very soon just disappear," Sohu reports, noting that now it is easier to write off the aircraft carrier than to continue its repair.

Earlier, the Russian news agency TASS reported, that Zvezdochka shipyard, where the ship is being repaired, opened a tender for the painting of the aircraft carrier’s external surface which is expected to be completed by September 1, 2022. More than 250 million rubles ($3.4 million) will be allocated for this work. The bidding closed on May 20. According to the shipyard’s press service, the ship is expected to re-join the Russian Navy in 2022.

2. So there hasn't been a regular maintenance schedule? For rust to get that far, there...

must not have been. With all the oligarch billionaires, including Putin, guest that was an after thought. And somehow I recall that trying to keep up the arms race with the once powerful US is one reason the Soviet Union failed.

4. Maybe if Trump's handler didn't pocket $200 from his country's treasury

to make himself the richest man in the world, in his eyes, they would have some cash for an overhaul.

6. For fans of Clive Cussler

They are just building the new Oregon

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_Files

The Oregon Files is a group of novels written by author Clive Cussler and co-author Craig Dirgo for the first two titles followed by co-author Jack Du Brul for the next seven titles. Starting with book 10 co-author Boyd Morrison takes over. The books follow the mysterious "Corporation" and its leader Juan Cabrillo. The "Oregon Files" come from the name of the ship on which the Corporation is based, the Oregon. The ship's name is based on the current State University of New York Maritime College training ship the TS Empire State VI. Its original name was the SS Oregon.

The Oregon is a high tech ship owned by a private secret service organization called 'the Corporation'. It is disguised as a rusty old tramp steamer. It mounts five cranes - three fore, two aft - only two of which are operational, one each fore and aft. To add to its appearance of authenticity, this disguise is highly detailed. This includes a fake mess hall, and a captain's cabin specially designed to be utterly repulsive, with features including specially designed chemicals to keep people away, a dysfunctional toilet, and depressing paintings of clowns on black velvet. In reality it is an extraordinarily sophisticated intelligence-gathering vessel with luxury facilities and top of the line technical capabilities. It is equipped with a moon pool for launching two minisubs, an Olympic swimming pool (in one of its ballast tanks), state-of-the-art medical facilities, and powered by a pair of revolutionary magnetohydrodynamic drives. It also uses an array of underwater vectored-thrusters to give it unparalleled maneuverability for a ship of its size

13. This is slightly off-topic and just a thought. A few days ago there was a thread about carriers...

becoming obsolete as battleships did during WWll. There is something to that as aircraft carriers are humongouslly expensive, slow moving, sitting ducks for present-day, extremely accurate, long distance missiles and drones.

14. And you can fit a shitload of drones on a much smaller, high tech ship.

Manned military aircraft are part of the obsolescence cycle. Strike fighter-bombers are ridiculously expensive, too.

18. Yes, and if the carrier is sunk the planes are loss too, or have nowhere to land if aloft.

16. Aircraft carriers are useless in the 21st century.

Maginot Line stuff.

Russia knows it, we don't.
