Russia refused to build helicopter carriers


Construction of own helicopter carriers became unprofitable for Russia.

Despite the fact that earlier Russia was strongly outraged by France's refusal to put the Mistral helicopter carriers into service with the Russian Federation Navy, and the ambassador of this announced the beginning of work on the development of such ships, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation stated that Russia similar ships are not needed, which caused a lot of questions from specialists.

The head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said that Russia completely refuses to build helicopter carriers:

"The issues related to the construction of an aircraft carrier for the Russian Navy are currently under discussion, and on the issue of the construction of a helicopter carrier I can say for sure that helicopter carriers, in the pure sense of the word, will not be built"

According to experts and analysts, the most likely reason for refusing to produce such ships was either a lack of financial resources, which, given the crisis situation, is quite possible, or the complexity of implementing the project itself.

"Russian combat aviation consists not only of airplanes. The use of combat helicopters in Syria has proven the effectiveness of these combat vehicles, and therefore the advent of helicopter carriers in the armed forces of the Russian Navy could seriously strengthen the country's defense capability and increase its military potential ", - said the analyst Avia.pro.

Moreover, the experts were puzzled by Manturov's statement that the issue of the construction of the Russian aircraft carrier is still under discussion.

What helicopter carriers can be, if in the pension fund the "mouse hanged", figuratively speaking.
Helicopter carriers will be when in Russia stop stealing in various forms of this action.
