Particularly bad news for the Russian Navy they lost a two-seater, can't be too many of those navalized two place MiG-29s.
Quote from: FightTheFuture on November 15, 2016, 02:27:10 PMThey say the plumbing is so bad on the Admiral Kuznetsov that over half the toilets do not work and typically just overflow.
Quote from: FightTheFuture on November 15, 2016, 02:27:10 PMWell, Duke, what can you really say about the Russian Navy? They`re pathetic? Nah...they`re BEYOND pathetic!! Their one AC platform has to travel with it`s own tug for when it breaks down...which it always does. They say the plumbing is so bad on the Admiral Kuznetsov that over half the toilets do not work and typically just overflow. Yes, turd chasing is a full-time job on the Russian ac carrier.

Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 15, 2016, 07:31:53 PMRussian carrier aviation is a joke
Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 15, 2016, 07:31:53 PMEven if everything was 100% mechanically sound, Russian carrier aviation is a joke militarily against all but third world and rebel/insurgency forces. No organic AWACS or aerial tanker capability, and no catapult system. Lightly armed, short ranged aircraft piloted by inexperienced naval aviators flown off a ship that has spent the overwhelming majority of its commission in port.
Quote from: theONE on November 15, 2016, 05:18:30 PMThe American position.The United States has often been accused of helping, or at least turning a blind eye to, certain extremists in order to pursue its other policies.â€œThis is what is really puzzling about the US position,â€ Daoud Khairallah, Professor of International Law at Georgetown University, told RT. â€œOn the one hand, it claims to be determined to fight terrorism. On the other, we see no signs of that, and we see that the closest allies of the US are helping, facilitating, funding, making it possible for these terrorist groups to continue expanding in Syria and beyond. So, the position of the US is really puzzling and it casts doubt about the seriousness and integrity of the statement, â€˜We are fighting terrorism.â€™â€But according to terrorism expert Max Abrahms, of Northeastern University, there is likely to be more cooperation between Russia and the United States over Syria following Donald Trumpâ€™s election.â€œMore and more I think the US is moving in Syria in the direction of Donald Trumpâ€™s preferred policy, which is to go against regime change, and that includes going against the rebels, ceasing to support them, ending the notion of a no-fly zone and expanding the list of militants that the United States deems as terrorists,â€ Abrahms explained to RT. â€œAnd so I think the US is going to be less critical of Russia, giving Putin a freer hand when it comes to taking on Salafist groups like Al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Shamâ€¦ already weâ€™re seeing a movement away from Obamaâ€™s older policy of regime change.â€

Quote from: Uncle Duke on November 15, 2016, 07:48:07 PMYes, although they do use a "ski jump" ramp similar to that used for SHARs by the Brits on their "Invincible Class" light carriers.
