    Russian carrier in trouble again

    Remember the "Amiral Kuznetsov"? Got sent to a much needed refit?

    It's drydock sunk. With the carrier inside it.

    Begining to think the ship is haunted...

    Perhaps the "floating drydock" should be re-classified as a Non-Floating Coffin!!!!

    #1 I hope no one's hurt

    #2 Did the carrier float by herself after the drydock sunk? Or did the drydock take her down?

    From the article, the russians are trying to keep it quiet, so way to know for sure. Apparently one of the big questions is: had any holes been made on the hull before he dock flooded/sunk? If so...
