Russia Wants To Build Aircraft Carriers… Yet Again.
August 12, 2008
Russia has plans to build "up to 6 aircraft carriers". The Russian leadership and naval command agreed on such plans. After a bad time in the 1990s the Russians are gaining back their superpower fantasies. Mostly due to increasing prices for oil, gas and uranium. And after the war against Georgia their spirit is probably up.
The Russians undertook several attempts to build aircraft carriers. But for political and financial reasons they never had a complete aircraft carrier.
