Russia is developing a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier

For the past two years Russia has been designing a prospective heavy nuclear-powered aircraft carrying cruiser, which should become one of the most important elementsof the country’s national security at sea, a source in the Military-Industrial Commission under the government of the Russian Federation informed journalists today.

"The Russian Navy needs an airborne cruiser, which would be dozens of years ahead of his time, and not just an analogue of modern aircraft carriers existing in the United States or other countries," he noted.

"The main requirement for this ship is its ability to act in all environments: space, air, water, land and underwater", the source emphasized.
