They are Project 23000 Storm ship displacing up to 95-100 thousand tons, the ‘mid-sized’ aircraft carrier displacing 76,000 tons, and the multipurpose Storm-KM carrier with semi-catamaran lines.

Russia’s new Project 11430E CVN has an interesting island design

The ship is both Catapult Assisted Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (CATOBAR) and Short Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (STOBAR) capable.

What is interesting is that the carrier’s island has been shifted inwards to allow jets to park on the starboard side of the island.

The mast is also similar to the British Type 45 destroyer’s design.
