China may be interested in "Ulyanovsk"

67
The Chinese aircraft carrier program is gradually gaining momentum. Although it is still far from the commissioning of a new Chinese aircraft carrier, more and more new messages are already being received regarding the relevant projects. Not so long ago, Chinese shipbuilders reported the start of research and design work in the field of naval nuclear reactors. This news It was received unequivocally: China is preparing to build an atomic surface fleet and, first of all, aircraft carriers with a nuclear power plant. The timeline for the start of construction of such ships, for obvious reasons, has not yet been named, and probably has not even been defined yet, but the relevant works have already started.


The other day, the Chinese news portal Mil.news.sina.com.cn opened the veil of secrecy over some of the details of the works. The authors of the publication in plain text stated that China could use not only its own developments, but also foreign experience. As a foreign project of an atomic aircraft carrier that could help Chinese designers and scientists, the Soviet project 1143.7 was named in the publication. Under this project, in the late eighties and early nineties, the aircraft carrier Ulyanovsk was built. Journalists directly stated that, despite the sad end of the Soviet project, the developments on it are interesting for China and could be used in the development and construction of new ships of similar purpose.

The official plans of the Chinese Ministry of Defense regarding the construction of new aircraft carriers have not yet been announced. To date, all available information on this topic has been reduced to several statements by various high-level officials, all of which are extremely general. No exact numbers or detailed technical information has been provided so far. For this reason, there are several assumptions about the further development of the Chinese aircraft carrier. fleet. One of the most popular versions (it is worth noting, it is also mentioned in the publication Mil.news.sina.com.cn) is the one according to which in the coming years China will build a number of non-nuclear aircraft carriers and only after that it will start creating ships with a nuclear power plant.

According to various estimates, a series of non-nuclear aircraft carriers will consist of no more than four or five ships. Such a quantity will provide aircraft carriers with all three fleets of the Chinese Navy and thereby increase their combat effectiveness. Chinese shipbuilders are guaranteed to spend several years on the implementation of the non-nuclear part of the aircraft carrier program. It is possible that the last of four or five ships with a steam turbine power plant will be laid down not earlier than 2018 or even later. Around the same time, the start of construction should be attributed, and if everything goes well, then launching or even commissioning the first Chinese aircraft carrier with a nuclear power plant. The number of such ships also remains in question, but it can be assumed that it will not exceed the total number of non-nuclear ships with aviation group.

Creating an atomic aircraft carrier, primarily because of the most complicated power plant, is a rather difficult task even for an industrially developed country. Given this fact, as well as some characteristic features of the Chinese approach to the design of military equipment, interest in the Soviet project 1143.7 looks more than understandable. Also in this context, you can recall history with the origin of the first Chinese carrier-based fighter Shenyang J-15, which can reveal the situation with the new aircraft carriers of China and Soviet developments in an interesting light. Recall, despite numerous statements by officials that J-15 was developed by China independently on the basis of the earlier J-11 fighter (an unlicensed copy of the Soviet / Russian Su-27SK), most experts and aviation enthusiasts associate its appearance with Chinese purchases from Ukraine, one of the prototypes of the Soviet T-10K. Thus, there is every reason to suspect China of the complete or almost complete absence of any of its own developments on the subject of atomic aircraft carriers, as well as of wanting to use someone else’s experience and pass it off as its own.

China may be interested in "Ulyanovsk"


Demonstrating the reasons why the Soviet project 1143.7 is interesting to China, the portal Mil.news.sina.com.cn cited the main characteristics of the lead ship, named Ulyanovsk. A ship longer than 320 meters with a flight deck about 80 m wide should have a displacement of over 62 thousand tons, and also be equipped with an 33-meter take-off springboard and two steam catapults. "Ulyanovsk" could carry up to 70 aircraft of several classes: fighters, helicopters and long-range radar detection aircraft. In addition, anti-ship and anti-aircraft missile weapons were provided. The operability of the huge ship was supposed to be provided with the help of four nuclear reactors KN-3 and four steam generating plants OK-900. The total power of the power plant is 280 thousand horsepower.

The construction of the aircraft carrying cruiser Ulyanovsk began in the autumn of 1988, at the Black Sea Shipbuilding Plant (Nikolaev). To assemble the structures of such a large ship, we had to modernize the equipment of the plant. "Ulyanovsk" was supposed to join the Navy by 1995 year, but the difficult economic situation in the Soviet Union, and then its collapse put an end to all plans. The ship was ready for about 20% (shipbuilders managed to build most of the hull structures), but the leadership of independent Ukraine ordered to stop work and cut the unfinished ship into metal.

It should be noted that the construction of "Ulyanovsk" stopped not for technical reasons, but because of economic and political problems. Thus, this project, despite its sad ending, can be considered successful, at least technically. Probably, this fact attracts the attention of Chinese shipbuilders. The technical solutions applied in the 1143.7 project are of great interest for any country that wants to start creating its own atomic carrier fleet. China is trying to cooperate with Russia in the military-technical industry and therefore we cannot exclude the possibility that he formally offers to begin a joint project to develop an atomic aircraft carrier as a whole or just a nuclear power plant for it.

Should Russia agree to such cooperation? Most likely no. The construction of nuclear aircraft carriers can be attributed to the category of projects of the defense industry, which should be created only independently. Carriers with nuclear power plants, due to their capabilities and characteristics, are a great force and therefore the technology associated with them should not be transferred to third countries. In addition to the military-technical aspect, it is also necessary to pay attention to the military-political one. Over the next few years, the Russian Navy will not receive ships of this class, and therefore cooperation in this area with a large neighbor with big plans cannot be considered a sensible step. At the same time, Russia may agree to sell some technologies that are not directly related to nuclear reactors for ships, but at the same time, are necessary for the realization of Chinese plans. However, cooperation or refusal of it requires an official request from China. So far, Beijing has not sent Moscow any such documents and it is not known whether it will send it at all.

      And what else can they give? Everything is already pr-li. And cooperation with China in the shipbuilding industry ... It is possible that this could be very interesting for Russia if, for example, an agreement is concluded that 50% of total orders for joint projects are made in China, and 50% in Russia at Far East Star ", create a powerful cooperation. I think this is a way out, both for our shipbuilding industry in general, and for the development of the Far Eastern region. But for this it would not be bad to conclude something like an alliance agreement.

        Of course, it is necessary to build such a ship, because these are new (well-forgotten) construction technologies, and experience (the son of difficult mistakes) that you can’t buy, you only need to survive it, and draw conclusions ...
        Of course, it is necessary for the aircraft carrier and several support ships, together they form the aircraft carrier group. It is the group that needs to be built. It is expensive. So what to do? Who is easy now?

        Illusions and naivety, forgive generously! Firstly, China will not agree to such cooperation; it has enough of its own production capacities today, however, like fin. funds! It is more profitable for him to buy, or to steal, for him there is no fundamental difference in this. And you can’t completely trust the Asians, including the Chinese! They will deceive, sell, they have it in their historical memory, in blood and in their tradition!

          China will not go to such a cooperation

          Will it go or not? Neither I nor you know this, a secret covered in darkness. it is rather a job for our politicians and diplomats (if, of course, they want to honestly eat their bread). We still need to establish normal relations with our neighbor on the principle of equal to equal, and at the same time there must be some level of trust sealed by mutual strategic interests, otherwise we will have an enemy on the border who wants to chop off everything that is possible. thieving "Asians" who want to somehow deceive the "white master" - a relic of the past centuries - now we ourselves risk becoming these same "Asians" in the eyes of the Chinese.
          And I just suggested the desired direction of mutually beneficial cooperation, maybe a little naive - but what to take from me !? Idealist.

            Yes, it is necessary to live with them as neighbors, but just why did you decide that China today treats us as an equal? The Chinese leadership has so much pride that you may not have even dreamed of that much! They consider themselves wow, and for a long time. Even in the time of N.S. Khrushchev, one of the ins and outs of the conflict with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and as a consequence of the discord with the USSR was that at the same time, in the 50s, China wanted the USSR not to look at him as a "little brother", and looked like an equal brother. The leadership has exorbitant ambitions there, and 0 modesty! The country was permanently starving, except for rice, they did not eat anything, but there was a show-off ... And now in the 21st century, with our current situation, you want the same China to perceive us, barely making ends meet, as equals? Isn't it funny for yourself? :) China, which began to compete with the United States in earnest and almost openly? I believe that they despise us today, but their strategic nuclear weapons are somewhat "calmed" and ... the presence of the United States on the planet as well!
            Otherwise, we will really have an enemy on the border who wants to chop off everything that is possible.

            and it is, you what? They just decided that Siberia, where I live, can wait for them so far, they need to solve other priority tasks.
            Treating the Chinese as thieving "Asians" who want to somehow cheat

            this is not only my opinion, but the opinion of many people, including who they are, the Chinese, know very well who lived there for a long time. In addition, the history of this people leaves no doubt about this! They always, in moments of danger, easily betrayed, deceived, if it was to their advantage.

              You have very strong feelings for China, you get the impression that if you had 100 tons of dust, you would have poured all this into the Celestial Empire without hesitation ... But try to understand - this is how they are, how they are ... they have considered themselves for 000 years the center of the universe, and there are only barbarians around, at the end of the 000th century everyone had to prostrate themselves in front of the Chinese emperors - this is the Chinese mentality (believe us, we have enough of our "shit" when we think that everyone around us brought happiness and civilization) Russian diplomacy has always defeated Chinese arrogance, now the problem is more complicated. we have become weak and they are strong, but we have to solve it ... We have our own know-how, which the Chinese will never reach by force - engine building, rocket building (S-5000 for example), nuclear engineering, etc. and so on, well, they do not reach our level (and will not reach our level if the traitors do not help) - these are the points of contact that will help us feel on an equal footing with them.

          Of the necessary for the construction of aircraft carriers, China has aircraft manufacturing, metallurgy, large-capacity shipbuilding, electronics, weapons and money.
          There is no school and experience in the construction of shipborne and generally compact nuclear warheads and Uralmash.
          Russia has the personnel and experience in the construction of nuclear weapons, a bunch of projects of compact ultra-safe nuclear weapons, Uralmash.
          The dough for what Russia still has needs to be bigger than to build and arm four aircraft carriers.
          The Chinese know how to count money no worse than the Jews.

          So what prevents them from saving on another four aircraft carriers and ordering nuclear weapons from RosAtom ?!

          Moreover, RosAtom does not offer reactors and ready-made nuclear reactors only in the leisure section.

        50 to 50 is unlikely.
        Most likely, the Chinese will do the hull and internal packing (we have built steel mills for them, we regularly prepare personnel for them), and we will order a nuclear unit and possibly catapults in Russia (we have the uralmash ready, and the Chinese still have to build it and prepare personnel for it) .
        In addition, it is reasonable to replace four nuclear installations with two, moreover, more modern ones. Yes, and two more power will be cheaper than four of the same total power.

        But Russia needs to build four aircraft carriers with nuclear weapons.
        Well, a couple of helicopter carriers with nuclear warheads would also be necessary. Moreover, the icebreaking class. So that they could simply work with icebreakers and in the event of a mess from the Far East to Europe and in the other direction, they could sneak out.

        The fact of the matter is that an aircraft carrier is not an airplane or a car, about 70 enterprises were involved in the construction of aircraft carriers in the vast countries of the vast country, most of which are no longer there, the same aircraft lifts were designed and built in Kazakhstan.

    Russia does not need it, especially Ukraine. Let the Chinese at least embody the titanic labor of design engineers in the creation of a unique ship in metal. If someone speaks of patriotism, then it should appear on the stocks in metal, and not in the drawings in the archive. It's time to end the bickering and create a modern military force together. A couple of decades will pass and those who have descended from the palm trees will begin to explain to us "who is who and whose turn it is to climb the pine tree." Do we need it?
    It's time to lay the Commonwealth aircraft carrier that unites us. Otherwise, an aircraft-carrying president will appear with humanitarian aid in the person of "peacekeepers" from the Marine Corps. And in Odessa, one cannon remained on the Primorsky Boulevard near Pushkin ... But someone already communicated the cannonballs.

    Such a ship today would not interfere with our fleet located off the Syrian coast. The stability of this group with its own aviation support could be significantly higher than today. So far, unfortunately, the capabilities of several of our ships to organize their own air defense are rather modest, if not any.

    In the dashing nineties, there was information that 5-6 Kamaz trucks with documentation for the aircraft carrier Ulyanovsk departed in an unknown direction. It is possible that she is in China.
    The Ulyanovsk project was at one time the most "advanced" or, as they say now, "innovative" in the world. Even now, it is considered one of the best in the world. One has only to earn some money (modernize).

      Gaidar, unlike his grandfather, was an advanced liberal. BAM and him were an unnecessary toy of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and much more. According to Gaidar, it was necessary to create vacuum cleaners and consumer goods, not BAM and Ulyanovsk. Nobody argues, consumer goods are also needed. But personally, I am not an economist, which may be what those sympathizing with the liberals would blame me for, but I don’t think it right to change BAM and "Ulyanovsk" for vacuum cleaners and kettles. Sometimes I catch myself thinking that officials in power praise Gaidar and EBN only because they themselves belong to this system. You cannot vilify the system that gave birth to them, you will have to admit that the officials themselves are shit. So they sing praises. How is it different?

      And how do the Chinese annoy you so much? China is a great country and our neighbor. With or without us, but China will achieve everything that it has outlined, so far it is interested in the remnants of knowledge and achievements inherited from the Soviet Union, this is our attraction so far. We are ready to transfer Su-35 technology to Brazil, we are developing the 5th generation fighter with India, the BrahMos is the same ... We have to go in the same direction with China, create joint ventures to produce high-tech products (better in our territory) and sell together this products to third countries. And the talk that they will deceive us ... You know - we won’t clap our ears and thieves are calculated in time - they won’t deceive us.

        Without the collapse of the USSR and access to its technologies, China would not have achieved anything in the military sphere. Well, maybe in 50 years I would have reached, in the military sphere, the level of the USSR of the 80s. Western military technologies are closed to China and no one is going to give them anything. Let’s see when the Chinese run out of resources for the embodiment of the Soviet backlog, which they received for nothing, what this will turn out for its armed forces. And it will be no more than 10 years.

        I would not be so sure of China’s wonderful future today, especially with their current economic policies. The resource base of China is a limit tending to zero. There are no energy resources at all, everything is imported and imported. 85% of its economy is export-oriented. To aggravate the financial crisis in the world, which is already in full swing, Europe and the USA will close their sales markets and that’s all, Kitty sailed. Up to 70% of its gold and foreign exchange reserves today are state bonds of the US Treasury, which are candy wrappers in fact, worse than even paper $. Amers will block the Strait of Ormuna and that’s all ... again rice and old berdanks! :)

          I dare to object.
          In the Chinese economy, the modern businessmen of capitalist bottling have neither ear nor snout.
          None of their forecasts yet took into account the strength of China's regulated economy.
          Even the European Union does not have access to the level of financial control that the USSR had in China.
          The EU itself is only dreaming of the financial discipline that it was in the USSR, and not what it is in China.

          For example, the volume of China's black financial market is at least 30% of the official. And nothing. No crises predicted by Anglo-Saxon analysts occurred - the Chinese economy under the control of the Central Bank of China taxied them very carefully.

          But the Yankees cannot block the Strait of Hormuz, and the Japanese cannot do it.
          And the drain of only 30% of the dollar mass that China has is very much lower US exchanges. They will immediately have nothing to pay salaries for the military.
          The second world economy after all.
          This argument will be stronger than the Seventh Fleet along with the Fifth and Sixth.

    And as for the partnership with China, there is no need to deceive oneself. This partnership is primarily beneficial to China, which we need as a supplier of oil and some military technologies. We must live not only in the categories of today. In the 50s, Russian and Chinese were brothers forever, and all Damansky ended. Therefore, it is not necessary to engage in self-deception regarding our neighbor, the Chinese know how to hide their

              In general, I agree. And China is moving in this direction. First of all, bases are being built in Asia. Myanmar-Bangladesh-Pakistan.
              Then comes the introduction to Africa and South America. Of course, they are still very far from the United States, but the trend is obvious.
              As for the fleet, China is clearly building a smaller copy of the US Navy.

Tu-16, of course I could not sit on the ice, the speed of the landing is not the same and the specific pressure on the ground, but with a very strong desire and a "one-way ticket" from the Kola half to New York it was quite enough. Not particularly formidable, of course, but this alone made them squeeze the point so that the needle did not crawl! About British ostorva I don't really care, in the 50s a special operation was carried out, when the English defendant's module "friend / foe" obtained by intelligence was installed on the Tu-4 and it flew over half of England and did not even catch it. :))

With the saturation of the high-altitude B-36, their chances increased, of course, but the thought of a retaliatory strike cooled them greatly (through the pole). If we had no nuclear weapons, they would have raskherachili like Hiroshima in 45 and would not even have twisted!
              In the mid-1950s, any American aircraft could easily fly to anywhere in Russia

              Well, why are you so, unfounded then? In 1956, the S-25 air defense missile system was on duty; Moscow was deaf to them. Here, in VO, there is an article about it, read it, I don’t want to repeat it.
              the ship died in the base - most likely the old "bookmark" from the Italians, revenge for his shame in 1943

              bookmark "lying" 10 years? :))) strange that you do not know. :( The epicenter of the explosion was under the bottom of the ship, under the bow artillery cellar, the edges of the plating in the area of ​​the hole in the hull are concave inward !! The battleship had just come from the sea, he took his place, on a barrel on the inner roadstead of the Sevastopol naval base. He returned after maneuvering against the NATO squadron in Chernoy, where they, NATO, and Turkey were conducting exercises. But it was not alone, the same was in the other barrel, on which the cruiser was supposed to stand (it seems pr. 68bis), but for some reason it either lingered, or stood in a different place (I don't remember already). The 1st artillery cellar of the battleship stored several special ammunition for the main caliber.There is an assumption that the purpose of the explosion was in this part of the ship, and not under the Ministry of Defense, which is more generally accepted, was the general detonation of the ammunition in the cellar + activation of the special ammunition, as a result, a nuclear explosion, the destruction of all evidence and ship, contamination the bay, as well as the possible accusation of the USSR in the inability to store nuclear weapons and the danger of its fleet in this regard! Later, it became known that in a closed secret setting, several officers of the saboteur submariners of the British Navy divers were awarded combat magrads in 1958, although at that time she was not waging a war.

              about "Kursk", as I understand it, do you agree with me, Oleg?

    1 All seas washing our country freeze!
    2 Modern weapons can destroy an aircraft carrier before it is used as a combat unit.

      For 1c-inform-city I must point out that you have a Stalinist view of the role of the fleet for Russia. During the discussion of the post-war program for the construction of the Navy, he struck out aircraft carriers from the list of ships planned for construction, while the motivation was as follows - "... we need a fleet to defend our coast and there is enough coastal aviation, especially since the acquisition of the Kuril Islands allows us to airfields are far out to sea, and aircraft carriers are weapons of aggression. Now, if we were going to go to the shores of America ... "
      In the current situation, for the defense of the coast of the Russian Federation - aircraft carriers really are not needed, but if we are going to eat on the coast of Syria, Libya and other jimacheri ... well, you understand this is another matter.

        And what was so bad in Stalin, excuse me? What early aviation began to write off? He simply was aware of promising innovative developments of anti-ship missiles in the USSR, and in those years any NK was defenseless before them. And the aircraft carrier is so in the first place because of its excellent radar signature. And the cost of an aircraft carrier hoo, that one. He understood this and therefore was against it. Somewhat hasty of course, but the same trends took place in the USA in those years, and so what?

        What does not suit you the opinion of an intelligent person and an outstanding statesman? In my opinion, his decision is relevant for Russia to date. It is enough for us to have two strong fleets: the North and the Pacific and control the Arctic. The Black and Baltic Seas will be our inland seas - they are shot through. It is enough to have strong air defense there. We cannot build aircraft carriers today, and probably we will never be able to. It is necessary to build multipurpose nuclear submarines and submarines. As much as possible while there is time. And in no case to reduce the strategic nuclear weapons and especially tactical nuclear weapons.

      even though I put a plus for you (for the first 1 sentences), but ... can you talk about some other Russia? Or is it your personal perception of Russia from the southern Black Sea part of Ukraine? :) Who told you that all the seas of Russia are freezing? I’m embarrassed to ask, is the Baltic Sea also freezing? What about the Sea of ​​Japan? I don’t ask about the Black Sea. :)
      3 Develop rocket technology, which is our priority.

      here I am of the same opinion, it would be an asymmetric answer, but ... the touch is almost lost, the time is lost. :( And if it were not for the 91st and the betrayal of the "elite", their mother, then hell knows what would have invented and implemented over these 20 years! The aircraft carrier is of course very vulnerable, I agree with you. I will say more, back in the early 60s, before the Korean war in the United States at the level of the Joint Staff Committee, a strategy for the development of their Armed Forces was developed, where it was admitted that the aircraft carrier, and the Navy as a whole, had outlived their usefulness, and in a future war everything would be decided by aviation, primarily strategic, but also ground - tactical! Period! Then there was a "riot of admirals", then the Korean and Vietnamese wars, and after the latter only the leadership of the US Armed Forces admitted that for their global national doctrine, there is no place without AUG!

Then why this absurd question? I was simply amazed at the "knowledge" of a comrade from Ukraine in geography and temperature regime and ice conditions of the seas he mentioned. If you want to discuss, write to the point!
          And in the Sea of ​​Japan we have Sakhalin.

          Of course there is, there is also Kamchatka and the islands of the Kuril ridge! So what? Do we have islands in the Indian Ocean? And in the Quiet Okenai? And how to cover NK at a distance from bases in these oceans? Although my mention of the Sea of ​​Japan in this post is again associated with its "ice" impassability and ice clogging (according to a forum member from the Square).

      1. So we need nuclear-powered helicopter-icebreakers capable of escorting aircraft carriers along the Northern Sea Route. "Svyatogor" was also built to lead not tradesmen, but battleships.
      2. A single aircraft carrier without a multi-purpose strike force is simply a big target. Not America.
      3. The development of missile defense in Russia suggests that missile weapons have too many vulnerabilities. And although the Yankees have not yet managed to achieve the result of the USSR in the 1960s, they are trying. The same "Iron Dome" in Israel. The success is clear. Finish a little more with a file.

    In fact, if China would invite Russia to participate in the creation of its own nuclear carrier, our managers from the military-industrial complex would be simply happy, but they were in no hurry to offer something smile
    And by the way, the J-11 is a completely licensed copy of the Su-27. Our license was pushed back in 1996.

    yes the cry breaks from the soul - HOW MUCH CAN YOU SELL EVERYTHING ?? !!!
    Okay, the finished equipment, but why do you need production licenses ?!
    We need to raise our industry, factories,
    to grow skilled labor.
    Sell ​​only READY PRODUCTS and level up
    customer service.
    This is the rise of their industry and
    raising the qualifications of YOUR workers!
    And selling licenses for a penny is a natural betrayal
    their engineers, designers and workers -
    they don’t get ANYTHING from licenses!

    China is trying to solve the problem with US hegemony, a worthwhile matter.
    Where the West leads the world and the United States can be seen on TV, or simply by looking out the window, and what will end there with China is not yet known. By the way, apparently this is our only neighbor with whom there was no "big" war. The entire West is helping the United States, and we need to help China for good. Although you can, of course, put sticks in the wheels, and then suddenly "they are going to take away our Siberia." By the way, some especially stubborn representatives of the "indigenous" population of America still consider the US territory "their" land, funny. In due time they would have united and together the Europeans in the ocean, but no, let's "be friends" against each other, solve problems. "The Iroquois want to take away from us a crooked stream, this land is watered with the blood of our ancestors, we were the first to come there. With the help of our new pale-faced friends, we, the great Algonquins, will not allow them to do this !!!" Solved the problem, as they say for all the money. Historical analogy, so to speak.

    Yes, they would do barter.
    We give them the technology, and in return they build the hull of a new aircraft carrier at our shipyards - and we will deal with the filling ourselves. This would save a bunch of attendants, and most importantly, the time to build the ship.
    With the current state of affairs, the Russian Federation will not receive a new aircraft carrier before the 2030 of the year, and China will one way or another build a nuclear aircraft carrier.
