Sevmash signed maintenance contracts for the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya

PA "Northern Machine-Building Enterprise" provides technical assistance to the Indian Navy in servicing part of the equipment of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya, reports Interfax-AVN the message of the head of the enterprise Mikhail Budnichenko.

A contract was signed with the Indian side for the logistics of the aircraft carrier, according to which Sevmash, at the request of a foreign customer, delivers spare parts to the ship. A large amount of work in one more area of ​​cooperation with our Indian colleagues: a contract was concluded for the creation of an on-shore infrastructure for the repair of aircraft carrier equipment in the Karvar and Mumbai bases,
told Budnichenko.

He recalled that "in 2015, the execution of the basic warranty obligations for aircraft carrier equipment was completed and the post-warranty support of the ship began."

Our specialists took part in the additional equipment of the Indian shipyards. In addition, we offered the Indian side a new project - the introduction of an automated system for monitoring the technical condition of the ship. He is currently under discussion and consideration,
said the general director.

According to him, "this year in India, a number of intergovernmental meetings were held, where the issue of post-warranty maintenance of the ship was discussed, and the protocol stated that the aircraft carrier is the benchmark in this direction of military-technical cooperation."

Budnichenko also said that the command of the Indian Navy notes the correct operation of the systems and mechanisms of the ship, allowing the crew to perform assigned tasks.

Aircraft carrier and deck aviation are operated very intensively, while a group of Russian specialists permanently located in India, in close cooperation with the crew and representatives of the Western command fleet promptly eliminate comments, conduct ship maintenance at a high professional level,
concluded the head of the enterprise.

    Serious topic. The Indians, they can’t see for themselves. And to teach them is the problem. We all remember the fire on the submarine. These people are generally crazy. One point is to eat, the rest is not important.

        A fighter assembly acquaintance told me on what principle they separate what parts will be used to assemble aircraft for a foreign supplier, and which ones will go to ours. If it’s true, then it’s not surprising that the Indians don’t fly, neither ride nor swim ...

        And what about the Western-made weapons? I remember they enjoyed using the French Mirages with pleasure - also broke and fought? I tried to search the network libraries - there is data on more than 400 MIG-21s lost in disasters (out of about 900 available), 6 lost SU-30s, but I did not find anything about the losses among the five dozen Mirage-2000. Do not fight? If so, then to nod to the Indian handshake, it turns out, is wrong.

          Yeah, Americans are much more likely to beat planes than ours, but that’s not because they are many times more there and the operation is much more intensive

            If only in this narrow sense, then yes, they did not. And in the Rafale contract, one of the main stumbling blocks was the French refusal to be responsible for the quality of the Indian assembly, even from their car kits. Perhaps they are smarter than us, and value an asset such as brand prestige more.
            But among the causes of the accident, in addition to the actual local assembly, the training of pilots and the quality of maintenance are also indicated. And for some reason, I doubt that elite pilots fly on Mirages, and the Moths are planted on MIG and SU (at least on the new SU-30), and that Mirages are serviced directly by French aircraft. So a comparison in terms of accident rate would be interesting and indicative.

              the level of technical culture of the Indians is very low, they even managed to overturn the frigate in the dock on its side

                Well yes, the culture is low. In Baltiysk, the “Admiral Essen” was only demolished with a propeller shaft in the port while maneuvering at low speed, the Yankees hit a couple of destroyers on civilian ships. This is a high culture! Where are the Indians.

                    The level of technical culture determines the availability of skills to create, operate, maintain this equipment. Navigation refers to this very operation. No?

                        And about the technical culture outside the human factor does not make sense to talk at all. Let me give you a couple of quotes:
                        "Cadres decide everything" IV Stalin.
                        "Devastation in the heads, and not in closets" M. Bulgakov through the lips of Professor Preobrazhensky.

    Aircraft carrier and carrier-based aircraft are operated very intensively.

    Hindus are Indians, and everything works. And intensively, a good example for ours.

    this is a big deal that instead of scrapping it, they rebuilt the aircraft carrier and sold it to a major partner of Russia - India

    I would like to know about the experience of operating an aircraft carrier in India. There was a lot of negativity in the press about the Indian MIG-29K. Up to the charge of total worthlessness. As if every landing on an aircraft carrier ends in an accident! I would like to know the truth!

    Hindus are a strange nation. A society divided into castes cannot be successful. Probably the Indian handshake comes from here. On Armie managed to screw up all their tanks, and then the aircraft carrier cruiser.
