NOVO-OGARYOVO, July 29. (Itar-Tass) - New contracts for construction of warships will also include arming them, Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin told journalists on Monday. He said that unlike previously, when two separate contracts had to be signed for the construction of a cruiser and production of its weapons, the new contracts would combine the two.
Rogozin believes that the new rules would help avoid incidents when ships are sea worthy, but their weapons are not ready.
Rogozin said that the 2016-2025 governmental arms program would include production of fundamentally new ships based on innovative developments of the United Shipbuilding Corporation. He added that these ships would be designed with an aim to streamline assembly of corvettes, frigates, cruisers, and other types of watercrafts.
Special attention will be paid to meeting the deadlines for military products.
