The cost of repairing the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov after a fire is equal to the price of a new nuclear submarine with nuclear weapons


The cost of repairing the only Russian aircraft carrier rose to the cost of building a new nuclear submarine.

The Russian news publication Regnum reports that after the only Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov burned down during repairs, its cost has risen sharply, and today it is comparable to the cost of building a new nuclear submarine with nuclear weapons on board .

Journalists emphasize that even with such a high cost of repairs, Russia today can not do without an aircraft carrying cruiser.

“The cost of repairing Kuznetsov is high and actually corresponds to the cost of building a new multipurpose nuclear submarine. However, this money is well worth it for the Russian Navy to receive a full-fledged aircraft carrier that can serve for a very long time and significantly enhance the potential of the entire naval connection, especially considering that the number of large warships in the Russian Navy leaves much to be desired. ”- сообщает Regnum Edition.

How long the repair of the Russian aircraft carrier cruiser Admiral Kuznetsov can last is unknown, however, experts believe that if the damage was sustained, the ship could be safely decommissioned and the construction of a full-fledged aircraft carrier.

“At this cost, the restoration of an aircraft carrier cruiser is completely irrational, especially since in the future Russia intends to engage in the construction of an aircraft carrier fleet”, - said the analyst Avia.pro.
