The fate of Admiral Kuznetsov | Forum

The Admiral Kuznetsov is Russia's last aircraft carrier. It's a relic from the Soviet Union, obsolete in many ways, and while the Russian Federation has poured money into keeping it operational, it seems everything that can go wrong for the old ship will or has.

Following it's operations in support of Syria against ISIS, the carrier was brought back to port for repairs and refits, and since then the old ship has suffered mishap after mishap. With costs rising on a ship whose effectiveness has already been called into question, a shadow of doubt now hangs over how long Russia's last aircraft carrier will remain afloat.
