KRET plans to create an electronic warfare system for the new ship
Construction is expected to begin in Russia in 2018 for a large universal landing ship and helicopter carrier. Captain First Rank Vladimir Tryapichnikov, the head of ship construction for the Russian Navy, discussed this on the radio station Russian News Service.
"Of course, currently the ship, a large universal amphibious assault ship, is being designed by various organizations. We already have some achievements, as we have determined its appearance. Its realization will begin in 2018, when we start construction of the amphibious assault ship,” he said.
As previously reported by the Russian Ministry of Defense, the first large landing ship (BDK) is expected to be built by 2020. The new generation of BDK ships are expected to have a displacement of about 16,000 tons.
KRET is ready to develop new electronic warfare defense systems for the future Russian helicopter-carrier landing ships.
KRET enterprises currently supply electronic warfare systems for all types of Navy ships, from boats to frigates. The equipment developed by KRET can be found on all the large surface ships of the Russian Navy, including the Moskva missile cruiser (Project 1164), Peter the Great heavy nuclear missile cruiser (Project 1144), and the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy aircraft-carrier cruiser (Project 11435). In addition, KRET enterprises have also helped equip the Talwar frigates built for the Indian Navy with electronic warfare systems.
