...is actually the former Soviet Admiral Kuznetsov-class aircraft carrier that was purchased in 1998 by China, towed from Sevastopol to the Dalian shipyard and rebuilt into the aircraft carrier Liaoning, finally deployed with the PLAN in September 2012. This lack of fact checking makes the rest of the "report" suspect.
So my report is 'suspect' because I said one of the ships is said to be the Varyag, which I said was a Slava class cruiser yet you clearly know (since you did 'fact checking' I presume) the name Varyag belonged to the aircraft carrier sold to the Chinese.
Well TTitan, since you did your fact checking well, well enough to feel competent enough to chastise me and call my post suspect, I am sure you must have realized that the third Slava Class guided missile cruiser was the Chervona Ukraine. Your fact checking must also have informed you that it was renamed as the Varyag afted an overhaul. That it has been called the Varyag for some years now, and is part of the main ships in the Russian Pacific Fleet.
Thus, when you said my information was suspect because I didn't do sufficient 'fact checking' you must have done the fact checking you claim I didn't do, and thus you must have been jesting when you so confidently said my information was suspect. After all, you don't come across as a sot of a fool claiming others are stupid without having done sufficient 'fact checking' yourself.
That would definitely not be the case.
