Россия отдает Китаю на ремонт свой единственный авианосец «Адмирал Кузнецов»
In Russia can not bring to mind the ship, built in 1987 in Nikolaev
In exchange, Russia gave China technology that will allow China to use its newest destroyers, high-tech weapons like the railgun.
It is noted that now China will be able to produce turbine blades that can withstand high voltage generated inside the turbine with electricity.
This will allow them to improve the engines of its newest guided missile destroyers. In particular, the Russian technologies will be used in the Chinese ships of the type 055, which China is actively building the last few years.
However, it is expected that China will repair or modernize the aircraft carriers, because after the accident at the only large floating dock Russia alone can not repair the major naval equipment.
So, China needs Russia for the conversion of the only Russian aircraft carrier “Admiral Kuznetsov”, whose hull, deck and other parts were damaged earlier this year. In the future the country will have to seek the help of the Chinese when you fix all his large ships, or to build a new dock.
Russia is not able without assistance to ensure maintenance and modernization of Soviet military equipment.
