    CVN-75 Ronald Reagan, Home Port Yokosuka, Japan.
    Sad to see the extend of US colonialism.

      Because colonialism abolished cannibalism

    so beside two easy targets have all their navy assets within their ports. And this been happening for close to a year now. are they with the idea that will be spared because they are in home ports, or that they can be protected when the shit hit the fan?

    • Sinbad2

      They can’t afford to deploy them.

    • Jens Holm

      None of that. They are as soldiers, which You rapidly can call in for war.

  • occupybacon

    I’d like to see Admiral Kuznetsov making a trip around the world :))

    • Henry Swarey

      I love your sarcasm.

      • occupybacon

        Well, I bet Nikolay Kuznetsov would love to know that his descendants keep his memory as close to the mother Russia as possible.

        • Henry Swarey

          He’d roll over in his grave if he knew the reason why.

          • occupybacon

            Maybe he was not so butt hurt as they are nowadays.

    • Sinbad2

      Lets be honest, Russia has always built crappy ships. The best fleet they had, was built in Germany.
      But ships are out of date, thanks to missiles, and Russia builds the worlds best missiles.

      • occupybacon

        I can’t contradict you with the missiles, though their surface fleet is a joke.

        • Jens Holm

          Kursk was a sub.

        • v76

          Actually their frigates and corvettes are good and very capable, their submarines are the best in the world… their aircraft carrier is old but imo ac are only good when fighting nations with no capable AA and/or air force… you use a ac against an equal foe and you will lose a ~10 billion dollar ship, billions in aircraft and 3000-5000 personal…. AC’s are the new Battleship, obsolete.

    • Jens Holm

      Its a carrier, they might carry it -sorry spelling. I am carried away by Your ironi.

      But Russians has the wettest dry dock as support vessel …

      • occupybacon

        The dock wanted to revenge those planes the carrier launched into the sea.
