Russia can build a new aircraft carrier for half a trillion rubles

Russia may receive a new aircraft carrier in the future if the Military-Industrial Commission considers it expedient to include the plan for its construction in the state armament program for 2024-2033. It is reported by RIA News with reference to a member of the Marine Collegium under the government of Vladimir Pospelov.

According to the agency's interlocutor, our country already has many technologyneeded to create a warship. In particular, Russia already has nuclear power plants of the required capacity.

At the same time, some elements of the ship are still to be worked on. We are talking about the take-off / landing system, and, in fact, about the carrier-based fighters themselves, which can carry the required amount of modern weapons.

Pospelov also told about the approximate cost of the new aircraft carrier. So, according to the expert, a promising warship can cost the Russian budget half a trillion rubles. Moreover, during construction, additional costs may be required, which can increase the above amount by 10-20%.

Earlier, Vladimir Pospelov has already announced the readiness of the preliminary design for the future aircraft carrier. The Russian ship will be inferior to the American one in displacement: up to 80 thousand tons versus 100 thousand tons. However, our vessel should be cheaper than a foreign competitor.

Recall that today the Russian Navy is armed with only one aircraft-carrying cruiser - the aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov". The ship was commissioned in 1991. At the moment it is undergoing modernization.

    Russia can do a lot of things, the inhabitants of the Kremlin would have this desire, but before building an aircraft carrier, the Russian Federation needs to build escort ships for it.

    It is high time. And then Putin has been in power for more than 20 years, and all the "Soviet galoshes" are exploiting. It's time to have your own "galoshes". Otherwise, it will leave and, apart from the mate, leave nothing behind. Because everything is Soviet around, except for yachts and palaces!

    For a defensive doctrine, there are enough helicopter carriers to scare the nearest neighbors. An aircraft carrier is a good target for hypersonic missiles these days.
