MOSCOW, (BM) – There is a possibility that the entire US fleet of aircraft carriers will suffer serious damaged and even be destroyed if the Newport News shipyard in Virginia is attacked, learned BulgarianMilitary.com, quoting Nezavisimaya Gazeta, Russia.
This statement was made by Konstantin Sivkov, President of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences. Sivkov is a Doctor of Information Policy and a Doctor of Military Science.
According to him, the shipyard in Newport News is the only one in the United States that can build and repair nuclear aircraft carriers.
According to him, at the shipyard in Newport News there are three slipways capable of accepting such ships. In this case, two of them are used for repair, and another for construction. Sivkov is sure that in the event of a military conflict, a strike could be delivered by cruise missiles in conventional equipment.
On September 28, Chinese journalists suggested which Russian weapons Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu had in mind when he spoke of a “nightmare of aircraft carriers” in a recent interview. We can talk about the anti-ship cruise missile P-700 complex “Granite”.
