Should there be a stub article for the Novorossiysk? It seems to be the only modern aircraft carrier without its own wikipedia page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.177.173.158 (talk) 17:48, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

What are "turbopressurized" boilers?--Two way time (talk) 22:53, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Just a guess, but boilers where they use turbines and compressors to pressurize the steam even further. Not sure how that works with conservation of energy, but maybe if they used waste steam from behind the drive turbines? Something like the concept described here http://cs.trains.com/trn/f/740/t/110300.aspx, only for steam turbines rather than reciprocating engines (they are fundamentally the same). Something like a turbo-compound engine for steam. AnnaGoFast (talk) 13:42, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

"Recreational"?[edit]

" two were sold as recreational pieces to China"? What, they bought two mid-size carriers to serve as personal yachts for VIP's? This seems unlikely to me. AnnaGoFast (talk) 13:40, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

The story given was that they were sold to become centrepieces of tourist parks. What the Chinese actually did with them is up for debate, but without reliably sourced info, all we have is that they became tourist sites. Llammakey (talk) 14:32, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
