The new generation of destroyers of the Russian Navy will have a much larger displacement than its predecessors, and on the striking power will be comparable with the cruisers, the Defense Ministry said on Monday citing Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov.

As it became known in late February, a priority when creating a new generation of destroyers is its nuclear power unit equipment. Now the Russian Navy has one surface ship with such installation – heavy nuclear missile cruiser “Petr Velikiy”.

“This destroyer will have a much larger displacement than its predecessors in the class – the destroyers of the project 956. The striking power of the new destroyer will be comparable with the cruiser,” Chirkov said at the end of his working trip to Kolomna.
