I dont think one carrier is enough for a Powerfull country like russia.
Russia hasn't had the investment and support infrastructure right now to operate more than one carrier so having ten right now would be pointless... they would spend all day tied up on the pier with no crew and no aircraft to operate from them.
A good strong navy will make Russia a more powerful global country... it doesn't happen the other way around.
Build another medium AC based on the kuznetsov with the granit missiles (or an updated version of it) and the AC wont need Much escorts.
It would be an enormous mistake to put heavy AShMs on their new carriers... they should certainly have 4-6 UKSK launchers, but loading them with land attack cruise missiles and anti sub missiles makes rather more sense as the aircraft on board could deliver air launched anti ship missiles to targets much further away than any ship launched missile.
Kuznetsov with Granits still needs escorts... and without its Granits will still need escorts but with more space for aircraft will offer better protection for the ships escorting it.
And then you Will always have atleast one AC ready for deployment when needed.
Not possible right now... it makes more sense to build up the rest of the fleets first to allow any new carriers to be properly used.
Alexei Fedorov has said that any decision on applying fifth-generation technologies to produce a smaller fighter (comparative to the F-35) must wait until after the heavy fighter, based on the T-50, is completed.
Which should be about 2018. Navalised PAK FA could be ready for naval use by 2022 and naval light 5th gen fighters perhaps 5-6 years after that.
Keep in mind that the smaller lighter cheaper 5th gen light fighter is not in limbo... the avionics for PAK FA are in the Su-35 and the avionics for the new stealth light fighter will likely be used in the Mig-35. Experience and production tools and skills can be applied directly to the new aircraft which will be stealthy by virtue of its airframe design no being based on a Mig-29.
Lets face it... the current plans of the US Navy show the stealth fighter on Russian ships will only need to contend with 4th gen western fighters... Rafale on French carriers, F-18 on US carriers, and the F-35 on the UK carriers and the F-35 as a strike aircraft on US carriers... the F-18 being replaced by the F-35 as the naval strike aircraft and relegated to fighter... replacing the F-14.
Fairly odd progression where the F-14 is the carrier fighter and the A-6 is the strike aircraft with the F-18 first replacing the A-6 as strike aircraft and then the F-14 as fighter is now to be replaced as the strike aircraft and will just be a fighter again.
