The design of the helicopter carrier, developed by the Central Research Institute. Academician Krylov, bears the conventional name “Avalanche”. It will be a real battle ship with a displacement of 24,000 tons with a crew of 320, ready to take on board the landing of 500 marines, plus 16 helicopters-Ka-27, Ka-29, Ka-52 and six assault-assault boats.
All this power, he can deliver 5000 miles from his native coast at a speed of 20 knots / hour under the reliable cover of artillery installations AK-176M, AK-630M2 and marine SAM “Pantsir-ME”.
In reserve, the developers have another project – “Surf”. In size, it is somewhat inferior to the “Avalanche”, but its capabilities are also high – two months of autonomy, a range of 6000 miles and 30 combat helicopters on board.
