Come on guys if you’re gonna try to dog on the ruskies and their love for alky at least get it straight it’s russian military, so too much aviation spirits, can’t pass up with a drink on the government’s dime and time.

Floating dry docks are used for upgrades and maintenance. Exactly what Russia was doing with the Kuznetsov.


Refitting an aircraft carrier is not minor maintainance and this is not just upgrading a weapons system. In fact part of the operation was to replace drive and engine had they been that far along the aircraft carrier would have sunk.

It is still upgrades. Russia has performed these upgrades in floating docks for decades with few problems. Just because WE don't with all our ships doesn't mean that it's the only way it should be done.

We used to put carriers and Iowa's in floating dry docks before we were too cheap. Here's the slightly smaller LHA-7, USS Tripoli which was built and launched from a floating dry dock by Huntington Ingalls. What idiots!

So where's the sinking of the submersible dock ? Yes we all see the fallen crane !

I guess that the west has seen its own fallen cranes recently ... www.youtube.com...
Nice fire after the crane crashed BTW ! Is that due to Russian govt spending issues, or corruption ? ... let me know !

Look like its do to a drunk ferry captain. But it is barcelona and i learned they can't drive. So i guess they can't pilot either.

Yeah, speak nothing of the fact that the Kuz is closer in size to an LHA than to a CVN.

Yep, the crane has a pair of locking clamps to secure it to the rails prior to any lifts or during foul weather, etc. At least the engineers who designed and built the hydraulic rail grippers can rest easy knowing their product did its job, lol.

Thought it looked that way ripped out a nice length of that rail I’d defininetly say the grabber did its job too bad the rail wasn’t imbedded better might have saved the day. Glad I’m not the only one who noticed it.

I don't even comment on the so-called "incident" with this ship ... I just have another question for the EU-NATO !

How's it going with Dement Juncture drills in Norway ? Feeling cold ? Need socks maybe ?


Flanker as always we are amused and challenged by your unique point of view LOL. You are the Soviet equivalent of Baghdad Bob LOL

Socks? Funny you should ask. USMC are testing out a new version

Fastening the rails to the top of the drydock walls was probably a different engineering team, haha.

It's in a slide show, so not inclined to fight it to grab individual ones.

Does Not Look Good(tm).

Sigh"....., no the Barcelona incident fire was caused by chemicals in one of the shipping containers being ruptured so no we aren't blaming the Russian government. Of course in the Kuznetzov incident I would blame a failure to carry out adequate maintenance as that particular floating dock was built in Sweden and was 38 years old. Having the ballast tanks pumps and valves fail like that is only likely to occur from inadequate maintenance. I'm betting you will come up with a more novel theory or "proof" though blaming the West or better yet saying nothing happened at all.
