Russia is reportedly building a new aircraft carrier — and it'll outsize the ones in America’s current Navy fleet.

The Russian Itar-Tass News Agency reports Russia's top naval commander announced the effort Monday, according to The National Interest.

"The period of stagnation in the development of our potential has long since passed," Viktor Chirkov, a Russian commander, told Itar-Tass.

U.S. Navy Feared Crappy Russian Aircraft Carrier Might Sink

Now nearly two years after Mediterranean cruise, the decrepit flattop ‘Admiral Kuznetsov’ limps back into action

In December 2011, the Russian navy’s aging, poorly-maintained aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov departed from its northern base on the troubled vessel’s fourth deployment to the Mediterranean Sea.

True, the full-size carrier—which displaces 55,000 tons fully loaded—has a history of mechanical troubles since she entered service in 1991. But her operational tempo had increased, the result of a renewed push by Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin to get the fleet out into the oceans for training and patrols.

To that end, Admiral Kuznetsov has undergone some limited retrofits in recent years and participated in several missions to the Med, so the old vessel had done this kind of thing before.

But as the Kuznetsov rounded Europe and headed towards the Syrian coast, the U.S. Navy’s Sixth Fleet kept close by in case the carrier … sank.

Hey, if the Ruble sinks further, maybe they can just throw all of their currency on the aircraft carrier and nosedive it into the nearest ocean.

I hope it sinks to the bottom of the ocean, and takes a bunch of russkies with it.

To be fair, the Japanese had a seaplane-carrying submarine, so the idea isn't unprecedented:
