Nuclear powered vertical launch submarine aircraft carrier.

 

"Boeing AN-1 Submarine Aircraft Cold War Concept 1958

NROs have also received several studies of nuclear aircraft flying submarines. The most ambitious proposal was submitted by Boeing, which designed a giant submarine vessel AN 1 with a length of 152 meters and a delivery rate of 9260 tonnes (below the water level of 14 700 tonnes) as part of a secret Flying Carpet project. It had two separate hangars for a total of eight aircraft, derived from the Halibut submarine hangar. The power supply was provided by one S5W nuclear reactor, with most of its power consuming two turbines with a power of 15,000 horsepower. With them it was possible to reach underwater the speed of 16 knots. The crew, including twelve pilots and two flight specialists, consisted of 163 men. The submarine was initially equipped with modified Grumman F 11F Tiger fighters. In addition to the folding wings, they could also be provided with tipping tail surfaces and an Flying Carpet. After the aircraft had been unloaded, the discharge device had to be rotated 90 ° upside down. Of course, the pilots would already be in the hangar in their machines. The reality of the idea was tested by placing two F 11F aircraft in the SSG 574 Grayback submarine hangar." - Tommy Wu, GPNW.

"Lider" nuclear Icebreaker project

 

5951533_original.jpg

 

Soviet build nuclear icebreakers Taimyr, Vaygach, Yamal, 50 years of Victory are first in this pic, Liders are last 3.

 

   There are questions about financing of this 209 meters long and 48 meters wide nuclear icebreaker.

Quote

   "Rosatom" began to raise funding for the construction of a new icebreaker fleet, signing memorandums with Sberbank and VTB. First of all, we are talking about the most powerful icebreakers "Leader" worth about 100 billion rubles each, which, according to the company, should provide year-round navigation on the Northern Sea Route. According to experts, the fact of negotiations with banks confirms the economic feasibility of the project, but the interlocutors of "Kommersant" in the industry still doubt the prospects and real capabilities of the "Leader".

 

Quote

The 120 MW "Leader" is to become the only icebreaker in the world for year-round wiring of vessels along the Northern Sea Route with an ice thickness of over 4 m, laying a corridor up to 50 m wide and conducting caravans at a speed of 10-12 knots. Now it is planned to build a head/first ship with a bookmark no later than 2020, in order to end it in 2027. As specified by "Kommersant" in the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the possibility of building two more serial "Leaders" will be worked out later. In September, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that by the decision of the Russian president, the "Leaders" would be built at the "Zvezda" shipyard in the Far East.

Someone posted in on a fb thread claiming it was from a Russian naval design bureau.  I'll see if I can find the link again.  Goofy as fuck.

The Krylov State Research Center has come up with a fundamentally new design concept of what may become Russia’s future semi-catamaran aircraft carrier, the cen...ter’s spokesman told TASS.The model of a future non-nuclear multirole aircraft carrier was presented for the first time at the Army-2018 forum at the end of August. The proposed project has no name yet.
“The semi-catamaran design of the ship’s underwater part is the project’s key distinguishing feature,” the spokesman said.Normally catamarans have two parallel hulls and a superstructure platform connecting them. The proposed semi-catamaran hull will resemble a dovetail, bifurcating toward the stern.

The company’s spokesman said the new design pattern’s main advantage was a large flight deck (as wide as that of heavy aircraft carriers) and smaller displacement. The flight deck area is a crucial factor for the number of planes the ship can carry.
“An average displacement ship is capable of carrying a full-scale air wing,” the specialist said.
No V-shape hull aircraft carriers have been built so far.

Parameters

The Krylov Center said the proposed aircraft carrier’s water displacement will be 44,000 tonnes, length – 304 meters, deck width – 78 meters, draught – 8.5 meters, full speed – 28 knots, and cruising range – 8,000 miles. The ship’s air wing will consist of 46 aircraft: 12-14 Sukhoi-33 fighters, 12-14 MiG-29K/KUB fighters, four early warning and command aircraft and 12-14 Ka-27 helicopters.
Russia’s only medium class aircraft carrier The Admiral Kuznetsov having a far greater displacement (59,000 tonnes) carries the same air group – up to 52 planes and helicopters

I call this model posted in your previous post as BS and unrelated to what is in news. This is a model of Shtorm aircraft carrier.

Here's the TASS article quoted:

http://tass.com/defense/1023982

 

It clearly states that some group in russia has designed a catamaran carrier (which may or may not be built), but it's nothing to do with that image - some guy made that up in 2009 (it's also one of the first results on google images for "catamaran aircraft carrier'):

The design discussed in the TASS article seems reasonable, stitching together two hulls will get you a lot of flight deck for your money

Oh, that’s a very nice pic, they still have their 8 inch guns, too! 

Yep. 1928, if the original caption was right.

 

Heh, if they still had the 8 inch guns they would have been OP as fuck in WoWS. DD thinks he's got a nice torpedo run flanking the battle line and can OMONOMNOM the carrier and all of a sudden eats a broadside of 8 8 inch HE rounds to the face.

That’s IF the 8 inch guns are any form of accurate. The dispersion on most secondaries in WoWS often makes me nauseous. 

 

And so so I don’t waste everyone’s time:
