The United Shipbuilding Corporation is ready to build Russian analogues of “Mistrals” if the Russian Ministry of Defense takes such a decision, president of the corporation Alexey Rakhmanov said.

According to him, the “Baltic Plant” could handle the task of building a helicopter-carrier.

The contract for the supply of two helicopter-carriers of the “Mistral” type was signed between French DCNS/STX and Rosoboronexport in 2011. France had to hand over the first “Vladivostok” ship last November, but it never happened.
