MOSCOW, August 1. /TASS/. Russia’s Navy does not plan to reduce the program of constructing warships, Navy’s Deputy Commander for Weapons, Vice Admiral Viktor Bursuk told Izvestiya daily on Monday.
"There are several options of implementing the promising program, but no decision has been made yet by the Supreme Commander on the new program of fleet construction," Bursuk said.
Izvestiya wrote that main efforts of the Navy are currently focused on constructing the Leader nuclear-powered destroyer, Storm aircraft carrier, Lavina large helicopter carriers.
The new nuclear-powered destroyer Leader will be constructed in the framework of the "Stealth" concept. The power capacity of the reactor will also allow to install new types of weapons on the ship - laser or electromagnetic guns.
Designers say the Storm project is ready. However, it requires some adjustment due to long-term construction. Designing a new large helicopter carrier will start next year, Bursuk added.
