Promising Russian aircraft carrier to be a nuclear one

1

Russia’s future nuclear carrier will have to be equipped with a nuclear power plant, a spokesman for the United Shipbuilding Corporation has told TASS.

“The project of a future Russian aircraft carrier, or as it is sometimes referred to as naval aircraft carrying complex, is in the design phase. Research conducted by the Nevskoye Design Bureau indicates that the sole way of meeting the Navy’s requirements, such as power generation, sea endurance and voyage range is to equip the ship with a nuclear power plant,” the source said.

“The current state defense contract for 2015-2017 contains no plans for creating a naval aircraft-carrying complex,” the source said.
