Amateur video of Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier and its CVBG in a heavy storm. For Sovremenny class DDG, up to 50 degree bank angle was reached.

Wow!,

do you know where that video was taken. It doesn't seems the Mediterranean, but who knows...

North Atlantic or Arctic Ocean - not quite clear from the narration.

I've seen something similar when I was stationed aboard the Truman. Back in '98 and '99, we did emergency sorties from Norfolk because of hurricanes Bonnie, Dennis, and Floyd in the late 90's. I'll tell ya, it's something else to actually see your ship, a 97,000 ton Nimitz Class carrier, getting tossed around like a bath toy. Everytime I had to deliver a weather mesage to the skipper up on the bridge, I was greeted with exactly that sight.
