USSR Kiev-Class Aircraft Carrier MINSK . This is the USSR aircaft carrier, official marked as Flightdeck Cruiser "Minsk". Years ago, i had this ship as a plastic model-kit. When i startet to build with Legos after the dark age, i knew, one day I had to build this ship - again. :) . Unlike American or British carriers, the Kiev class is a combination of a cruiser and a carrier. In the Soviet Navy this class of ships was specifically designated as a heavy aviation cruiser rather than just an aircraft carrier. She was the second Kiev-class vessel to be built. Named after the capital city of Belarus, the Minsk was laid down in 1972, launched on 30 September 1975, completed on 27 September 1978, and decommissioned on 30 June 1993. The tasks in major of those ships were Anti-sub, Anti-surface. At first, the airwing as it was used on the ships of this class. Normally, the Kiev carried. 12 Yak-38M fighter aircraft and and 20 Kamov Ka-25 or Kamov Ka-27 helicopters (U see the versions with engine off, folded blades and with running engines. Heres the ship itself On 31 May 2006, the Soviet aircraft carrier was finally auctioned off in Shenzhen for 128 million RMB to CITIC Shenzhen, the current operator. The Aircraft Carrier now is at the CITIC Minsk World in Shenzhen. The park is open to the public.
