Western experts believe that Russia’s Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier is one of the world’s five worst aircraft carriers in the history of navy.
According to The National Interest, the Admiral Kuznetsov surprisingly remains operable.
Admiral Kuznetsov’s predecessors could work only with vertical or short takeoff and landing aircraft.
The Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, thanks to the presence of a springboard, made it possible for Russia to use conventional deck-based aircraft. In November 2016, the Admiral Kuznetsov took part in her first military operation against Syrian terrorists.
The list of other worst aircraft carriers also includes the British Eagle, the French Bearn, the Japanese Kaga and the American Ranger. All of them were built before WWII. The Admiral Kuznetsov was launched in 1985.
