Project 23000E or Shtorm is a multi-purpose, heavy aircraft carrier project being designed by the Krylov State Research Center for the Russian Navy.[1] The cost of the supercarrier is estimated as being between $1.8 billion and $5.63 billion (at August 2015 exchange rates), with development expected to take ten years. The carrier is being considered for service with the Russian Navy's Northern Fleet. Nevskoye Design Bureau is also reported to be taking part in the development project.[2]
