Casino Carrier

Before China’s first indigenously constructed aircraft carrier entered service in 2019, China’s sole carrier was a retrofitted Ukrainian carrier from the Soviet Union that was originally supposed to be an off-shore casino. A Chinese businessman bought a non-functional aircraft carrier from Ukraine, allegedly to use it as a floating hotel/casino. It took more than 4 years to tow it to China. Later the Chinese government bought and modernized the carrier.
