The heavy nuclear-powered missile cruiser “Admiral Nakhimov” will become the most combat-ready and formidable ship of the Russian Navy. The head of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) Alexei Rakhmanov said this on Tuesday, August 25.

At the Army-2020 International Military-Technical Forum, he spoke about the progress of work on re-equipping the cruiser and equipping it with the latest equipment.

“Outboard fittings have been installed, the remains of key large-sized equipment are being loaded. Active wiring and connection of systems begins, including the installation of the latest weapons. This will make the “Nakhimov” the most “toothy” ship of the navy “, – Rakhmanov quotes the TV channel” Zvezda “.

On August 22, Forbes wrote that after modernization, the Admiral Nakhimov will become the most powerful surface warship in the world.

The missile cruiser is armed with P-700 “Granit” supersonic missiles, nicknamed “Carrier Assassins,” as well as S-300 air defense systems and 9K33 Osa missiles, according to the website kp.ru.

In 2022, the cruiser will be transferred to the Russian Navy. The Admiral Nakhimov will be one of the first ships to receive the Zircon hypersonic missiles. These warheads are capable of exceeding the speed of sound nine times, while maneuvering and changing trajectory during flight.

The day before, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced the department’s plans to conclude 39 contracts with defense industry enterprises in the framework of the Army-2020 forum for a total amount of about 1.16 trillion rubles.
