Description: The Project 23000E Shtorm, Storm in English, is a large aircraft carrier design developed by the Krylovsky State Research Center. The ship has a displacement of 100,000 tons, is 330 meters long, 40 meters wide and has a draft of 11 meters. It is powered by either a conventional or nuclear power plant sailing at up to 30 knots and withstanding sea state 6-7 (waves of up to 9 meters high). The Project 23000E aircraft carrier can remain 120 days at sea with a crew of 4,000 to 5,000 men. The ship will carry 100 aircraft including the navalized version of the T-50 PAK FA stealth fighter, Mig-29Ks and Yak-44 early warning and control aircraft.
The flight deck has been designed with four launching positions including ski-jump ramps (2) and electromagnetic catapults (2). In early 2016 it was revealed that the Project 23000E was the preferred bidder for the Indian Navy future aircraft carrier slated for the 2030s.
