Repair of the aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Kuznetsov" will take some more time


The heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov is the only ship in the Russian Navy capable of carrying aircraft. machinery various classes. The cruiser was built back in the Soviet Union, so in 2018 it went to Murmansk for modernization.


However, as a result of a tragic incident with the PD-50 floating dock, the Admiral Kuznetsov was seriously damaged, which affected the deadlines for the work. A year later, a fire broke out on the warship, which further shifted the timing of repairs and modernization to the right.

According to the General Director of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov, the cruiser will stay in the dock for three months.

The ship has been docked at the 35th plant in Murmansk, the repair and modernization work will take three months, until September. Then the work will continue at the wall of the plant

Rakhmanov told the agency RIA News.

Rakhmanov did not name a deadline for the work "at the wall", but it is unlikely that they will be completed quickly. According to the plans, the modernization and repair of all four gas turbine propulsion units should take a little less than 1 year, while only one will be repaired in 3 summer months. All this does not yet allow making an accurate forecast regarding the return of the ship to the Northern Fleet for further service.

    paint and sell China to India, it has no tasks, there are no escort ships, which means it makes no sense to spend money on it; it’s better to build minesweepers for aircraft and nuclear submarines

    How is it no tasks? For him, there are a great many tasks in the Northern Fleet. Opening the website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation

    Designed to give combat stability to strategic missile submarines, surface ship groupings and naval missile-carrying aircraft in combat mission areas.

    And you say there are no tasks. Escort frigates are being built. If we return Nikolaev, things will go smoothly faster.

    it is better to build minesweepers for aircraft and nuclear submarines

    Yeah. And then they will all be sunk by aircraft and hunter submarines. smile

      frigates are built one at a time in two years, and they are decommissioned faster, without minesweepers the entire navy turned out to be incapable of combat, this is a fact, now 50-70 minesweepers will appear, you can think about frigates, and by the time there are 20-30 frigates, Kuzya will still go to junk, so sell it and forget it like a hasty dream of the military budget

        Modern combat operations indicate that today the main thing in the fleets is: - Air defense and long-range missile precision weapons. Gigantomania is only to the detriment, the fate of the huge "Moscow", the big ones become a bait for efforts to defeat ... Old ideas about hundreds of minesweepers and other things also go into oblivion ... Here they threw Odessa with mine weapons, they don’t fit the soup with dumplings, ships and others work from afar, and if they come to catch dumplings, they will drown these minesweepers from the shore ... The war at sea is becoming different, which means that the fleet needs another, according to new weapons and new means, mobile, small and armed: corvette- frigate, "dreadnoughts" like "Admiral Kuznetsov" are not needed - billions have been invested, the output is zero, or even minus (loss of carrier-based aircraft). No wonder the US Navy was so interested in the death of "Moscow" ...

          I agree with you, now is the age of missiles and camouflage, not surface banduras
