 France will launch the aircraft carrier renewal plan in the future.


According to reports, France is the only country with a nuclear-powered carrier besides the United States, and the Charles de Gaulle is also the only active carrier of the French Navy. Since serving in 2001, the Charles de Gaulle has participated in several important military operations, including three deployments to the Mediterranean to combat extremist groups in the Islamic State.

However, in recent years, the De Gaulle often has technical problems and has been stopped for many times. In particular, since 2017, the De Gaulle has begun a large-scale renovation project, which is expected to be completed in 2019 before it can travel to the Indian Ocean to carry out its mission. Therefore, the De Gaulle is in urgent need of successors. Paley told the media that although the Charles de Gaulle had shown good performance after its mid-life extension and was expected to serve at least until 2030, it was necessary to launch the next generation of aircraft carriers in order to maintain the French navys strike capability.

Parry said that the first phase of the new carrier project, the research phase, will start with an 18-month study on the characteristics of the new carrier, what threats it will face, what tasks it will undertake and how to be more efficient and practical. The French government will invest 40 million euros in this research phase to determine the structure, duration and cost of future new carriers.

It is believed that France will adopt many new technologies in the future, including electromagnetic ejection system, air-sea detection system, air-sea integrated information system, and the use of kinetic energy weapons as short-range defense system. In response, Paley said that it was not yet clear whether the new carrier would use nuclear power or conventional power, but that the new carrier might use electromagnetic ejection technology and carry the future air combat system being developed jointly by France and Germany. The new aircraft carrier research association is expected to have specific results in 2020. It has been reported that the French Defense Procurement Agency and the French Navy have recently held discussions with the United States on new technologies, including electromagnetic ejection systems, to show Frances positive attitude towards the development of the next generation aircraft carrier. Meanwhile, at the European Maritime Defense Exhibition, which ended on October 26, the French Dassault Aircraft Manufacturing Company launched the prototype of future fighter aircraft, using tailless, W-shaped fuselage design and advanced stealth and Avionics systems. Some analysts point out that this is also part of the future air combat system. (Wei Qiang) the source of this article: the editor of the peoples net: Fang Wen Qi _NBJS6946
