Russia is upgrading the missiles on two of their Oscar II SSGNs.  Originally they had planned to upgrade the missiles on all 8 boats, but now are upgrading only two.  I suspect this is an indication of economic weakness and budget problems.

Carriers are expensive and in this day and age, there is some question as to their survivability.  I wonder if that isn’t in part why Brazil is going carrierless, at least for a while.
