Brazilian Navy abandons aircraft carrier refit plans and decides to scrap vessel

The Brazilian Navy have decided to abandon the refit of the Sao Paulo and decommission the aircraft carrier after a series of technical issues and accidents.

Rectification costs are understood to be a major factor in this decision.

The Sao Paulo is a Clemenceau class aircraft carrier commissioned in 1963 by the French Navy as Foch and was transferred in 2000 to Brazil, where she became the new flagship of the Brazilian Navy.

The earlier intention of the navy was that the vessel would continue in active service until 2039, at which time the vessel would be nearly 80 years old.

(...SNIPPED)

The Argentinian navy uses the Sao Paulo to carrier qualify their pilots.
