  1. Almost all russioan (ex-soviet) submarines are rusting in russian harbours, sunken at the shore. They dont have money to scrap old submarines, but they continue to build new ones. At least that aircraft carrier will be used by indian navy. After Vostok was sold to China as scrap metal, but rebuilded and completed by chinese navy as their first aircaft carrier.

    • If there were money to build, so there will be at disposal of old submarines.
      Everything made ​​by human hands can be destroyed by American submarines is not the case?
