Poles intend to participate in the construction of a new French aircraft carrier


France is preparing to bookmark its second aircraft carrier. Since the sale of the Foch aircraft carrier to Brazil in 2000, Paris has had only one Charles de Gaulle for the next 20 years.


According to the specialized Polish publication Defense24, if the Fifth Republic is slow, it will have to decide not on the second ship of this class, but only on its successor. Experts point out that the French aircraft carrier can be operated for about 40 years, and the construction of a new one from the keel to the flagpole will take 10 years. De Gaulle was founded in 1989, and commissioned in 2001.

Initially, it was supposed to build two ships of this series, but on the second one they put an end to it because of the high cost. However, in 2018, the French Minister of Defense during the Euronaval exhibition announced the start of conceptual work on the second aircraft carrier. Paris actively used Charles de Gaulle, for example, in a NATO operation off the coast of Syria.

The leading defense industry companies of the Fifth Republic will be involved in the production: Naval Grup, Thales, MBDA, Dassault Aviation and TechnicAtome, which means the choice of the power plant of the ship in favor of the atom. The displacement of the aircraft carrier will be about 70000 tons (against Charles Charles de Gaulle's 42 tons). To bring it into motion, you will need a large K500 reactor, or three K220 reactors at once.

Nuclear traction will be needed to use the electromagnetic catapult. The Rafale M wing will rise on deck, but in the future, the French are counting on the marine version of the European NFG / SCAF fighter (Next Generation Fighter / Système Aérien de Combat Futur). The landing deck will be extended to 240 meters versus 199 meters from an existing aircraft carrier.

The new ship will be built at the shipyard Chantiers de l'Atlantique in Saint-Nazaire. However, the interest of the Poles in the project is that they expect to receive part of the orders. Defense24 recalls that part of the structural elements of the Mistral was built in Poland.

      Apparently, that's why second-hand pimps are being bought for their fleet.

        Over the course of its existence, more than 1000 vessels have been built at the Gdansk Shipyard. Now the company employs more than 2000 highly qualified shipbuilders. Recently, the shipyard specializes in complex offshore vessels such as DSV, OCV, ORV, OSV, PSV, Combidok, as well as LPG (LEG).

          Have you heard about the market? Cheapness, the engine of trade, and the board is corrugated, so we will drive it and in five years we will sell it to Africa.

      Yes, you are definitely Arkharov. How many years did they leave in Polish, not to be confused with the Polish courts? Only the Chinese are worse, after two years the set through the casing is visible.

    De Gaulle noted Syria? Yes, he ran to his uncle two days later. Or even broke.

    French, of course, needs cheap labor, but what about Polish quality?

    Judging by the minuses, the liberals are outraged, however, they have nothing to object to. But as always. ... why sometimes smoke comes from the clus and water flows?

    So many minuses, apparently, all our liberals are old crabs in the subject.
