MOSCOW (BNS): Russia is currently constructing a new class destroyer at its United Shipbuilding Corporation, according to Russian media.

"A prototype of an ocean-going class destroyer will be built in 2016 for the country's Navy," RIA Novosti quoted Russian Navy Adm. Vladimir Vysotsky at the 5th International Maritime Defence Show, IMDS-2011, in St. Petersburg as saying.

There are 90 per cent chances to fit the destroyer with a nuclear-powered engine, the officials said.

According to the President of United Shipbuilding Corporation Roman Trotsenko, the company will design a new-generation, nuclear-powered destroyer for the Russian Navy in coming two years, it said.
