    The Lider class destroyer requiers the naval S-500,Pantsir-M and other weapon systems that are still in development therefor the first Lider class will likely only be operational in the early to mid 2020s however It would make sense for Russia to make a pilot ship in order to test systems and work out what problems need to be fixed before pressing the new ships into service.

    Russia to launch construction of nuclear-powered guided missile destroyer

    June 20, 18:06 UTC+3
    The construction may start after 2020

    KALININGRAD, June 20. /TASS/. Work on building a cutting-edge Lider-class destroyer for the Russian Navy may begin in 2020, Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief for Armament Viktor Bursuk said on Wednesday.

    "A preliminary design [of the destroyer] has been made. Following its results, we are now making the necessary decision and work on its technical design will begin shortly and the construction will start after 2020," Bursuk said.

    The project of the destroyer codenamed Lider is being worked out at the Severnoye Design Bureau in St. Petersburg. As Vice-President of the United Shipbuilding Corporation for Military Shipbuilding Igor Ponomaryov said earlier, Russia’s Defense Ministry has already approved the warship’s conceptual design.

    As was reported earlier, the future destroyer will displace from 10,000 to 15,000 tonnes. According to Bursuk, the Lider will get a nuclear-powered propulsion plant.

    I think the statement about being able to construct the Lider class after 2020 is released prematurely, i mean what is the purpose for announcing this to the public? To keep our hopes up? They shouldn't have done this unless they are absolutely sure that construction will commence in only a few years (5 years max). They cant even churn up production of Gorskov classes, what more a larger vessel like the Lider. I just wish people from the Rus Navy/ Defense imdustry would be realistic with their press releases.
