Ex Gorshkov now back in the water

Postby MikeJames » 22 Feb 2010 20:37

The former Russian carrier Gorshkov, under conversion to a conventional carrier to operate carrier versions of the Mig-29 fighter, the Mig-29K, has relocated from the drydock where she was being worked on and is now alongside the Russian post of Severomorsk in the the Kola Peninsular.

She is located directly centre of this Google Earth shot. http://maps.google.com/maps?t=h&q=64.58,39.8065&ie=UTF8&ll=64.580857,39.809228&spn=0.001451,0.009506&z=17

As you can see, still a lot of work to be done.

If you wander around the harbour you can see two Kirov class battlecruisers, three Typhoon class ballistic missile subs, the first of the new Grainey class attack subs and numerous smaller ships tied up.
