Granit Out, Kalibr In

Granit Out, Kalibr In 25 April, 2017

Russia will begin modernization and repair work on its aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, which will be equipped with the Kalibr-NK missile complex in replacement of carrier's current Granit complex. The work will also include repairment of all the electric-mechanical parts, as well as modernization of the runway. 

Russia’s sole aircraft carrier was commissioned in 1990 and has not undergone any major overhauls following a two-year refit between 1996 and 1998. The upgrade is expected to extend the ship’s service life by 25 years.
