"Admiral Kuznetsov" will get rid of black smoke

The only Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier available in Russia, after repair, will get rid of black smoke. About this agency Interfax said Alexei Rakhmanov, head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

During the repair, all boilers will be replaced on the vessel and it will no longer emit caustic smoke. In fact, it arose due to problems with the fuel supply, but then this was not taken into account. Now the problem is solved

- noted Rakhmanov.

In May, TASS, citing a public procurement resource, reported that the building of Admiral Kuznetsov, which is currently under repair at the Zvyozdochka branch in Murmansk, will be painted before September 1, 2022. The cost of the work is about 250 million rubles. The aircraft carrier, according to the head of the corporation, will be handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense in two years.

In December last year, experts from the American publication The National Interest called the Admiral Kuznetsov, as well as other cruisers of the 1143 Krechet project, obsolete “pieces of rusty metal.” A year earlier, Business Insider analysts noted that Russian Navy ships embarking on long voyages escorted by towing vessels during the exercises of the North Atlantic Alliance countries are a sign of the great problems experienced by the Russian Navy.

    ... ships of the Russian Navy embarking on long voyages escorted by towing vessels

    The U.S. Navy warrant also includes towing vessels! Why don't they write about it?

    It's time for scrap.
    In the USSR, they did it to test solutions for full-size aircraft carriers, but now why?

      It’s too early for a re-melting.
      For "running in solutions" one would be enough, but at least two were built. The Chinese don't seem to complain.
      At least he needs it so as not to lose his school until a new one appears, naval pilots need to train for something.

        This is understandable .... But isn't it too expensive? There is a "Thread" in the Crimea.

          The fleet is generally expensive.

          If you want to ruin a small country - give her a cruiser. Better yet, sell

          But there is no other way. No deck complex can completely replace.

        The Chinese complain that they can no longer build a deck for the aircraft carrier.

          So they are looking for a new "iron", Liaoning seems to be working. And if there are problems with him, let the manufacturers turn to yes under warranty. laughing

    The repair has already been going on for 2 years, and "will be delivered" - again in the future tense.
    You can brag for another 2 years - they will deliver and deliver, deliver and deliver.

    - Yes, it’s easier to do it at all - switch to coal and continue to smoke ... to intimidate enemies ...
    - And you can make films ... about Tsushima ... - Attach cardboard gun turrets and shoot ... - it really smokes ... - Hahah ...

    Aircraft carriers are advanced technology. And Russia is obliged to own them! Therefore, they are doing everything right!

    And they say that in Russia it’s a little tough with money. Well cat Matroskin commented on a similar situation. We have the means. We do not have enough intelligence.
