“Rostec”: Without Russian Equipment “Mistral” will Navigate by Stars


Helicopter carrier of type “Mistral”, built in France for the Russian Navy, should be upgraded with Russian equipment, otherwise it will be a “bad floating box” and will navigate by stars”, said in an interview with Tass the general director of concern “Sistemy upravleniya”, board member of the Joint Instrument Corporation (part of “Rostec”) Andrey Riznyk.

According to him, now on board the ship there are a few blocks of Russian equipment, which will help “Mistral” to reach our shores.”

“But it needs to completely implement it with French or Russian equipment, because otherwise it will, roughly speaking, navigate by stars,” Riznyk told.
