For the French Navy are going to order a promising nuclear carrier

It was announced that the French President Emanuel Macron would discuss the issue of ordering a promising aircraft carrier for the country's Navy. To date, the only active French aircraft carrier is the Charles de Gaulle, which is still forced to stand in the port due to health problems among hundreds of its crew members.


The National Defense Council, whose meeting is scheduled for June of this year, is going to discuss the possibility of ordering a nuclear aircraft carrier with a displacement of up to 75 thousand tons. For comparison: the total displacement of Charles de Gaulle (also nuclear) is 42 thousand tons. And the total displacement of the American aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt is about 97 thousand tons. It turns out that the desired French Navy aircraft carrier - something in between (displacement) between these aircraft carriers.

The first hearing on this issue took place in February. Then the ministerial investment committee met. The Minister of Armed Forces of France Florence Parley announced that she intends to support the initiative of the Navy to order a promising nuclear carrier. Now they are going to enlist the support of the president of the country.

In the ministry of the armed forces of France:

Initially, we proceeded from the idea of ​​acquiring an aircraft carrier with conventional engines. But now we are considering a ship with a nuclear power plant as a more suitable option.

It is noted that this will increase the autonomy of the warship, will make it possible to carry out long voyages with fewer calls to certain ports.

At the same time, the ministry cannot yet concentrate on the question of why the Navy is the second aircraft carrier, if the operation of Charles de Gaulle in France itself raises a lot of questions. There were assumptions about what could not have done without “recommendations” from Washington, who would like to arrange the delivery of the French F-35B carrier-based fighter aircraft.

        How many F-35s will be based on a 75-ct.? 36-48 is the maximum.
        For the United States, which collect 150 pieces per year, not too gigantic order. And it is not yet known how French aviation firms will react to the F35 contract. What about Rafali? Domestic car with good performance.

          Given that the number of people wishing to buy F - 35 is sharply reduced, even 40-50 pcs. already tangible. Rafal and F - 35 cars of different generations, if French companies give out a 5th generation car, they will also buy from them. But this is a big question - a very expensive chia. Even the mattresses harnessed all their “sixes” to this topic.

    But what about Russia? Again the lull? Kuznetsov will have to be written off in 8-10 years. An aircraft carrier is at least a status item that every great power should have. Well, plus combat capabilities.

                    Well ... where is the excess of ships, and where is the aircraft carrier ourselves? Kuzya doesn’t get out of the repairs, consider him not, and his task is rather to “preserve knowledge and traditions”.
                    And this is not an excess, it will be the most necessary ships for the same control of the water area. And with an aircraft carrier, it will be much easier to control this water area than without.

    In order to have combat capabilities, there must be a corresponding air wing. What kind of aircraft carrier wing do we have, instant 29k or even more drone? Do not make me laugh

        Everything is doable, even the development of an 8th generation fighter underwater. Only for this, money and time are needed, sensible teachers across the vertical from kindergarten to university and advanced science. Of all the above, we have only oil money.

    . There were assumptions about what could not have done without "recommendations" from Washington, who would like to arrange the delivery of the French fighter carrier-based F-35B

    Such assumptions appeared, it seems, strictly from the anonymous author of the article.
    The French have their own deck fighter for aircraft carriers with catapult take-off, and the F-35V is generally VTOL.

      At the same time, the ministry cannot yet concentrate on the question of why the Navy is the second aircraft carrier, if the operation of Charles de Gaulle in France itself raises a lot of questions. There were assumptions about what could not have done without “recommendations” from Washington, who would like to arrange the delivery of the French F-35B carrier-based fighter aircraft.
      Such assumptions appeared only with site newsmakers.
      This is such a news feed system on the site - at first a little truth, and then trick to give the desired effect. Hamsters will not be checked.
      Firstly, the new aircraft carrier is scheduled to be commissioned no earlier than 2035-2039, and secondly, the ministry has long been focused on - it should replace the Charles de Gaulle, which will expire in 2040.

      And thirdly, it is supposed to equip the Next Generation Fighter, which is being developed jointly by Germany and France.

    And the French economy will coordinate the construction and acquisition of a new aircraft carrier? And the subsequent operation is also not a cheap event ... But the main questions remained unanswered why is this a miracle of French technology that seems to have no foreign ambitions? And the second question is why one aircraft carrier, and not at least two, of course three is better, but as I understand it, the option is not even discussed about two ... request
