ST. PETERSBURG, June 22. /TASS/. The construction of Russia’s promising aircraft carrier will start after 2025, a source in the country’s military-industrial complex told journalists on Monday.
"Designing the aircraft carrier is underway, we can start construction no earlier than in 2025. It will probably be completed in 2025-2030," the source said.
The most difficult task is designing the future ship - "coordinating what the Russian Navy needs and what industry can offer with regard to the fact that the air carrier should meet the requirements not of yesterday and today, but of tomorrow," he noted. The source added that "the Russian Navy makes very stringent requirements on how the aircraft carrier should look, but we do not see anything that we can’t do in those requirements."
There is no draft design of the new aircraft carrier yet, but specialists from Krylov State Research Center and Nevskoye Planning and Design Bureau created a draft model of the promising aircraft carrier with a displacement of 100,000 tons which was demonstrated at the recent Army-2015 exhibition.
Krylov State Research Center earlier announced designing a heavy Project 23000E Shtorm (Storm) aircraft carrier with a displacement of 100,000 tons and air group containing of 80-90 aircraft. Specialists from Russia’s military-industrial complex say the aircraft carrier will take about 10 years to build.
