Military Watch: New helicopter carriers will cost Russia more profitable than Mistral


New helicopter carriers will cost Russia less than $ 650 million per unit, they will begin to lay by the end of 2020. About this writes the American edition of Military Watch.


The cost of two future helicopter carriers - "Sevastopol" and "Vladivostok", revealed sources from the Russian military-industrial complex. New aircraft-carrying warships should be laid at the shipyards of the Crimea before the end of this year and launched in 2022. Their displacement will be about 25 thousand tons, the length will be about 220 meters, various helicopters, including attack Ka-52 Alligator, will be based on them.

Before that, the Russian Navy was going to acquire 4-5 Mistral class ships (with a displacement of about 35 thousand tons), as part of a cooperation program with France. But because of the events in Ukraine, this deal ended to no avail and two finished Mistral were sold to Egypt.

At the same time, Russia gained access to the French technologywhich the Russian shipbuilders managed to master.

Previously, the USSR was one of the leading aircraft carrier powers on the planet, but the collapse of the country, the crisis in the 1990s and the loss of large Ukrainian shipyards threw Russian shipbuilding several decades ago.

The new helicopter carriers will be the heaviest surface warships built by Russia since the USSR, and the program itself can pave the way for the construction of medium and heavy aircraft carriers.

Currently, Russia is developing a fighter with a vertical / short take-off and landing as a successor to the Soviet Yak-141. Therefore, it is likely that in the future these fighters may appear on Sevastopol and Vladivostok.

    I’ll fix it a bit. He was not one of the leading carrier powers, but was about to become. But, see, not fate. The leading aircraft carrier power has been (so far) America.

      Why are you giving out military secrets? This is for the cheers patriots "Schaub proud." And in general, this is another chatter, time will tell.

        Well, maybe it would have been if Khrushchev hadn’t cut the naval program. Our old veterans all their lives remembered with a kind word (for the pensive: with a kind word, this is a sarcastic expression).

          The most notorious Russophobes are the patriots of today's Russia.

      The leading carrier nation was and is (so far) americosiya

      At the time of the collapse in the USSR there were several aircraft carriers, so one of he was, although, of course, the US AF was much stronger.

        These few aircraft carriers are a pitiful example of aircraft carriers. This is a colossal waste of public funds. And besides, no planes. Yak-38, which were based on it. The aircraft were not equipped with an onboard radar station, which reduced their combat potential. The high fuel consumption of the three engines also had a negative impact on flight performance. Attack aircraft, taking off vertically, could carry only 1 ton of payload, which consisted mainly of uncontrolled weapons. In addition, vertical takeoff and landing reduced the combat radius: this parameter did not exceed 200 km. The naval witches could not pass by this feature of the aircraft, and came up with the offensive nicknames "mast protection aircraft" Then they changed their minds, laid ships more similar to aircraft carriers. But they managed to build only "Kuzya".

          Yes, I know, but they were.

            It would be better if they were not at all. Built, spending a lot of money to show the Americans what we also have. And they are completely useless for airplanes and airplanes that were based on them, too. Putting them into battle against the American decks is like giving a flock of sheep to a pack of wolves. The Americans would have shot them without prejudice to themselves, as in a shooting gallery at targets.

              I would say that they would be better done normally.

          Of course you're right. But only this was our way to carrier-based aviation, moreover, limited by the Montreux Convention. We could build in Nikolaev air bearing cruisers, but not aircraft carriers. In theory, everything was wonderful, long-range long-range nuclear missile weapons on a ship in the ocean zone with powerful air defense systems and, in addition, short-range vertical-takeoff and landing air defense fighter jets. So what's wrong with that? Then the most common of our explosive missiles was the R-60 with a launch weight of 42 kg. Yak-38 took them 4 pcs. What the attack aircraft decided to make of him, and destroyed him as a close interceptor. They turned the wrong way. It was necessary to set the radar, as in Sea Harrier, but ... I hope that Sea Harrier and Harrier after the Falklands you will not scold? And imagine that if there was Kiev, and not Ark Royal?

    On the "Mistral" Russia is notably welded! And technology received, and loot with fat.
    Well done!
    (The French paid Russia their own technology and paid extra money).

    Dash East is fantastic. They must lay down at the end of the year, and lower it in 2022. Like, build in a year ???

    It will be a breakthrough from breakthroughs, a breakthrough from a breakthrough, a tale from fairy tales.

    Maybe they will offer to believe in retirement again?

      Launching and building is far from the same thing. They plan to transfer them to the fleet in 2026 and 2027.

        It is clear. But still Fantastish !!!
        Because:

        About this writes the American edition of Military Watch.

        Anyone can be expected from the Americans !!!
        That's just unclear:

        Russia is developing a fighter with a vertical / short take-off and landing as a successor to the Soviet Yak-141.

        - also Americans reported?

          We will see. The main problem is that we like to lay equipment in the project that is not yet in the iron, and then long-term construction projects like 22350 begin. If this does not happen, then they can catch it.
