Media: The United States will not like the creation of a joint Russian-Chinese aircraft carrier


By openly calling Moscow and Beijing its enemies, Washington promotes their rapprochement. Now Russia and China, under the incessant pressure from the United States, are expanding cooperation in many areas. I wonder if they will be able to jointly create a Russian-Chinese nuclear aircraft carrier to wipe the nose of the Americans, who will definitely not like it? This question is being asked by the Indian edition of the EurAsian Times.


At one time, Moscow, "having gotten a hand" on the creation of "aircraft-carrying cruisers", began to build its own nuclear aircraft carrier, but the collapse of the USSR prevented this business. However, Russia has tremendous experience in building large nuclear icebreakers, and recently the Russians have laid down a couple of non-nuclear helicopter carriers. In addition, Moscow has at its disposal the Soviet TAVKR "Admiral Kuznetsov", which is undergoing modernization.

In turn, China has two non-nuclear aircraft carriers. "Liaoning" - an unfinished Soviet, purchased from Ukraine, in 2012 was put into operation and is used as a training ship. Its displacement is 67,5 thousand tons, length 300 m, width 75 m. The air group is up to 24 aircraft. "Shandong" is the first one built by the Chinese independently. It was commissioned in 2019. Its displacement exceeds 50 thousand tons (the exact one is classified). The ship is 315 m long, 75 m wide, and has a speed of 31 knots. Air group up to 36 aircraft. This suggests that Beijing has made some progress in heavy shipbuilding.

In 2018, the Russians invited the China National Nuclear Corporation to participate in a tender to create a nuclear icebreaker. In fact, this is an introduction to technological opportunities. The displacement of the vessel should be 30 thousand tons, length 152 m and width 30 m. The PLA has its own nuclear submarines, but the technologies used in them are not suitable for surface ships. Therefore, the Chinese are very interested in the experience and opportunities of the Russians.

Moreover, Russia needs money. Moscow itself could build everything it needs. She has all the necessary technologies and developments, but primitively there is no free funds for implementation. Therefore, money from China can solve many problems.

Experts believe that we have before us an example of the interest of the two countries in cooperation. How deep and all-encompassing the further process will be is another question. But if Moscow and Beijing continue in the same spirit, and Washington does not stop worrying them, then the day may come when the first nuclear-powered Russian-Chinese aircraft carrier will be laid down.

Moreover, China needs such a ship now, and no one except Moscow will help it. It is easier for Russia, a continent country in terms of defense, but given the circumstances, it may even agree to create a full-fledged military-political bloc with China. Such an alliance is able to challenge US dominance on the planet, the newspaper concluded.

    The stump is clear. And the Russian-Indian will not like it. And Sino-Pakistani. And the Kyrgyz-Uzbek, if you really fantasize too much.

    There will not be any Sino-Russian nuclear aircraft carrier, only Chinese is possible with the participation of some Russian enterprises ... Russia will not pull either financially or productively, because they cannot bring their built Admiral Kuznetsov to mind for decades, so a new one will not be introduced in a century ... Yes, and weapons always have only one owner, there is no other way, and you can lease YOUR OWN, like a nuclear submarine to the Indians ...

      We do not lease, but lease. The difference is that the nuclear submarine will eventually become their property.

    And not where to build (they used to build a large one at the Nikolaev shipyards), and in principle we don't need to pull this. If the country does not plan to attack anyone, then there is no need for aircraft carriers.

    - An absolute lie ... - And a double lie ...
    - The first lie is that Russia itself can "build everything that is needed" ... and that supposedly "it (Russia) has all the necessary technologies and developments" ... - No ... development, no technology for this ... - Take, for example, our Russian shipyard "Zvezda", where all Chinese engineers, technologists, workers work ... - And many components for ships under construction are brought from South Korea and already on this "our shipyards "adjust them", install and assemble them already at this "our shipyard" ...
    - Anyone can type data about this Zvezda shipyard in any search engine and find out all the details ... about this our Zvezda shipyard ... - So this shipyard has been created for civilian gas carriers ... - What about military ships speak...
    - The second lie is that "money from China can solve many problems" ... - What kind of "money" from China ??? - This is when China invested some money in Russia ??? -Yes, China, in the best case, sniffs out outdated used equipment and old-fashioned equipment (construction and transport) to Russia; and in the worst case ... - it will simply deliver its consumer goods and other Chinese-made household goods to Russia ...

    But if Moscow and Beijing continue in the same spirit, and Washington does not stop worrying them, then the day may come when the first nuclear-powered Russian-Chinese aircraft carrier will be laid down

    - Yes ... and ... and ... and the "joint Russian-Chinese crew" will take up joint combat duty on this "nuclear-powered Russian-Chinese aircraft carrier" ... - Well ..., Gogol's Manilov was just already envious and stoned on the sidelines ...

      but you can prove by facts for your statements -

      Take, for example, our Russian shipyard "Zvezda", which employs entirely Chinese engineers, technologists, workers ...

      - or that the OBS is not continuing you are our

    will they be able to jointly create a Russian-Chinese nuclear aircraft carrier

    Nuclear aircraft carrier toy is an expensive and excellent target for modern weapons.
    The Russian Federation does not need an aircraft carrier, except for prestige, and therefore can help the PRC, which needs it to escort and secure the sea version of the new Silk Road - there are few or no military bases at all, and sea trade caravans need to be guarded and the aircraft carrier will come in handy here.

    Such an alliance is able to challenge US domination on the planet, the publication concluded.

    The PRC has thrown a challenge to the US domination and the challenge is based on economic power, which in turn needs military support, which the PRC is doing by building up its military potential, and the Russian Federation is helping this. Only two states in the world - the Russian Federation and the United States - have an early warning system for a missile attack, and the PRC is working on its creation and, as Vladimir Putin said, they will do it without us, but with us they will do it faster.
    Both states oppose the bloc policy - the Russian Federation out of a desire to remove the threat to NATO, and the PRC from the trade restrictions of its economic expansion - the reasons are different, but the goal is the same.

    China can only assemble a corps, and even then with the help of Russian engineers, and the rest must be completed afloat in the Russian docks, and China is no longer in business here.
