    They should build more of these but how about adding a few heavy duty cranes on the sides to turn this dry dock into duel role construction and repair yard?

    Five years old but a pretty good background article. Published pre reaching Syria.

    Wow, now thats a really authoritative source there unshaven
    Some guy on twitter with the name of a Hong Kong pop singer quoted in a Eurotrash Military contractor Press release aggregator site.

    That said its probably true: They can't repair it.
    Yet.

    Anyone with Google could have noticed that the Drydock they need to complete the repair isn't finished being rebuilt -> repair can't be completed yet.

    Edit: or more to the point, read it on Tass https://tass.ru/armiya-i-opk/12867191
    MOSCOW, November 9. / TASS /. The heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser of project 1143.5 "Admiral Kuznetsov" is planned to be delivered to the modernized dry dock of the 35th SRZ branch of the Zvezdochka ship repair center in June next year. At the same time, the delivery date of the ship will be shifted to 2023. This was reported to TASS by a source in the military-industrial complex.

    "The docking of the cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov will take place in June next year. The ship will stand on the slipway of the new dock for staging the propeller-rudder group and hull work. Its repairs will be completed in the summer of 2023, and at the end of the same year the aircraft carrier will be handed over to the fleet," the source said. agencies.

    According to him, the updated dock is capable of accepting the cruiser by the end of this year. "However, this technological procedure is safer to carry out in stable weather, in warm and light times," he added.

    Who is Louis Cheung_hk and why should we believe him?

    Equally... who cares... what is one extra year... it is going to take time for them to get escort ships ready to sail around teh place with her while she is testing all the new stuff so even if she was handed over now we would still have to wait.... I am sure the crew would need a bit of refresher training on what they did before and what has now changed...

    It was already known they would deliver it in 2023, and a new thread for these no news when we already have one for the Kuznetsov is absurd if you ask me...
