SPOILER: THEY WON’T BUILD IT. Russia unveils yet another new aircraft carrier design. “Russia appears to do this every year and as most of you will be aware, the designs never progress further either due to a lack of will or resources on the part of the Russian military.”

Post-Soviet Russia lacks the logistical wherewithal to project hard power more than a few miles into neighboring Ukraine, yet continues designing aircraft carriers which will never sail farther than the drawing board.

Call it “projection envy.”
