Moscow is planning to build at least one giant aircraft carrier, even larger than the US Nimitz class of supercarriers, to give Russia's navy the ability to project power around the globe, according to naval chief Viktor Chirkov.
The new carrier is still in the early planning stages, and many experts doubt Russia has the ability to construct such a vessel. But Admiral Chirkov's announcement does come amid a massive naval buildup that will see the Russian navy receive 50 new warships this year alone.
Please God, let them build it. Hell, build 3 or 4.
