7 years on this thread and you're still making up your own facts to fit your narrative. So your source is a n excerpt from a deleted article written by CV16's "chief engineer"? So this "chief engineer" is the only person who saw these dead sailors? He's the only one who saw a 60 000 ton ship adrift in the bohai sea? Riiiight. The rest of your post is even worse nonsense. The ship was launched in 1988. How is it launched with no treatment or paint? It's Hull still had that paint when refit began in 2003. Construction was halted in 1991. How can a ship under construction " be so rusty it's not even worth scrapping"? Russia was too broke to maintain the ships it inherited in '91, let alone complete as carrier with no shipyards capable of doing so in post soviet Russia. Do u want a list of the ships they let rot or decommissioned or mothballed? Nakimov is one, and it's being refurbished now more than a decade later. And I didn't know French piss can eat thru military grade steel? Based on your "chief engineer" maybe. But everyone else who has the eyes to see and read would tell a different story indian "Frenchman". I've wasted enough debating a fanboy as is.
