    Default Russiaan Carriers

    Ok guys a late night post I have rummaged through all my Russian stuff and I've uploaded the best of what I have, I love the Kusnetsov there is just something about her, I never tire of looking at her she may not be as pretty as she once was but all in all still nice lines.

    **** you never cease to amaze me with the pics you seem to dig up. I too love the uniqueness of the Admiral K. Interesting detail of the deck. Looks like rivets in one of the photos. looks like it would get mighty slippery tho. Anyone else think she looks like she rides high in the water?.

    Compared to what I'm use to seeing in my US Navy service she looks like crap. And that's being kind. That flight deck has no 'non-skid" and rusty patches. I can imagine it gets very slick during inclimate weather. Looks real bad. Gotta wonder.. how does the interior of the ship look???

    Heres a few renderings of a supposed chinese aircraft carrier, notice no angled flight deck similar to the QE class





    And heres the Ulaynovsk class carrier that was under construction in the Soviet Union during its collapse, it was eventually sold for scap by the Ukranians, was to be comparable to American carriers, with combo ski jump and catatpult...



    supposedly the blue prints of this ship were sold to China

    She was supposed to have been modernized not long before departing for the Mediterranean... How recent are those photos

    I wish I had an answer for that. But I do not..

    Those Chinese(PLAN) navy CV drawings are just PLAN "Fanboy" or China watcher dreams. No one really knows what the first indigenous PLAN CV will look like...By the way I'm a super moderator of an English Language Chinese military forum.

    Here's some more..

    I like the idea of a multihull carrier ... how feasable is it?

    If the hull is large enough to contain all the supplies, ammo, fuel, crew berthing, messing, medical etc, etc..It may be ok. But how stable would a hull like that be? A CV deck need be as stable as possible to operate aircraft.

    Well, as far as sail boats are concerned, tri or catamaran designs are a lot more stable (and "stay flat") than mono-hull.

    THe issue maybe the size of the carriers... the structure linking the two hulls would probably be under too much stress

    I agree that the Kusnetsov looks a bit sad and doesn't hold a feather to the US Carriers but in her day she was a nice looking ship. She definitley wasn't a contender against the CVN's but I just like the look of her stern as she was steaming through the waves. The photos were fairly old as I've had them for quite a while.

    Just a side note Netzach and I have solved our differences and agreed to let the last page slide with a fresh start guys. Have a good one all and I will have my usual post a bit later after my second coffee of the day.lol
