About 300-400 billion rubles will be spent on the development of a new aircraft carrier for the Russian Navy. Now the selection of the most promising project is underway.

According to RIA Novosti, citing a source in the military-industrial complex, among the favorites are the Lamantin projects from the Nevsky Design Bureau and the Storm proposed by the Krylov Scientific Center. Both projects will have a displacement of about 80-90 thousand tons and will be able to accommodate more than fifty aircraft.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has repeatedly announced plans to create a new aircraft carrier, but it will probably be possible to start the project only after the implementation of the current weapons program in 2027.

Now the Russian fleet is armed with only one aircraft carrier - Admiral Kuznetsov, and is currently undergoing repairs.

Recall, recently the media reported that the United States temporarily lost all aircraft carriers in the Atlantic due to unexpected breakdowns.
