  • INS Vikramaditya cruising towards full deployment









    Sailing besides old, tired but gracious INS Viraat.




    Don't know what comprises its CBG.



    Arriving home from Russia, joined by couple of boats and INS Viraat

    She really is a beautiful ship. I hope the Indian Navy gets many years of good service from her.
    Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

      Given ship building maturity India is gaining and presently undertaking many big projects; underway with indigenous resources and JVs with foreign vendors, I see not many obstacles in sustaining this ACC for at least 25 + years.

        She better be beautiful given how badly the Ruskies screwed us over.
        Hope our guys are brushing up on their ASW.
        For Gallifrey! For Victory! For the end of time itself!!

          India belongs to a pretty exclusive club, operating fixed-wing carrier-borne aircraft continuously for the past 50+ years. The challenge in this case will be, as Bolo touched on, dealing with the Russian equipment and worksmanship.
