    They could transform it into a civilian vessel. Cargo ship or tanker to use northern sea routes.

    It would reduce operating cost on fuel.

    Or maybe they can use it as a floating nuclear power plant and rent it to countries that need electricity.

    CVN doesn't generate revenue

    There should plenty of client and this ship can't last forever.

    They would need to offer it in the next few years for a 10 years operation untill more such ships are build.

    They are building barges as far as I know and firstly for their operation in the Arctic. A ship handles the sea much better and could be leased to foreign countries.

    That is it... the Ural...

    AFAIK it was scrapped... too expensive to operate...

    It would be big enough to put two NPPs on board... you could park it in some harbour somewhere and provide electrical power for the whole port... somewhere in the ME perhaps, but equally somewhere in Africa where stable power supplies would boost development...

    Perhaps the Army could use it for trips to places around the world where there are strict gun controls... it could sail around the world and remain in international waters so say it came down here it could send large numbers of small boats to a New Zealand port for people to go out to international waters to look at the ship and fire machine guns and rifles and rocket launchers etc etc for a bit of fun... charge the people for the whole day... 2K would be a base ticket where you go out to international waters and fire a few guns yourself and can watch others fire weapons out into the open ocean... they could organise targets... heavily armoured seabased drones that could be sent out to any distance you like... you could have games with sniper rifles sending small armoured boats out to any distance you like.... 500m, 1,000m, 2,000m... you could have shooting competitions with rifles or machine guns or rocket launchers...

    Then sail on to the next country.

    I would think they would make a bit of money in Japan and even the UK where gun laws are tight.

    I would think they could have all their newest and more obscure weapon types for collectors to get a chance to shoot... Maxims... even gatling guns...
