Two Kirov's class atomic cruisers will be resurrected

The Russian naval program goes ahead. After declared intention to buy in one of the European countries (France, Nederland or Spain) an amphibious assault ship, also known as a helicopter carrier, a Russian military top said that two additional now conserved nuclear-propelled cruiser Kirov's class can be resurrected and enter the Navy service. The deputy MoD Vladimir Popovkin said to 'Moscow Echo' radio-station yesterday that the program for this is already developed. The atomic cruisers 'Admiral Nakhimov' and 'Admiral Lazarev' will come back to service on Pacific and Northern fleets. For the force projection in the remote pelagic areas Russia needs at least two such cruisers on the North and one – on Pacific he said. The current activation of Russian military policy in Latin America has to be supported by additional transportation and strike capacity. Russia needs it urgently otherwise its old and new friends there never can be calm about US invasion. 

Since most of Russian shipyards are occupied with domestic and foreign orders, seem that the Russia's tops are ready to use any opportunity for accelerating their Navy program including reviving old ships and new orders abroad. Up to 3 additional helicopter carriers can be built in Russia itself in addition to one bought off-the-shelf. If 'Nakhimov' and 'Lazarev' come back to service they would be modernized with much more advanced seekers, longer range missiles and networking capabilities then they had in Soviet era.

    after what time period the reactors in kirov cruisers need refueling

  3. to anon September 22, 2009 5:26 AM :

    Kirov's type of reactor is KN-3 (OK-900 is a civilian version). It has to be reloaded each 5-6 years of active service. For a surface ship the procedure isn't so complicates as for the submarines. The atomic ice breakers and cargo ships are reloaded in such frequency without problem.

    However, during the modernization the resurrected cruiser can get a new modernized reactor KLT-40M with longer time between reloading, about 10 years.

    With this new method, it's not much different than sitting across the table from a private tutor. It appears, at least for now, that that language is English.
