India accuses Russia of delaying commissioning of INS Vikrant

India accuses Russia of delaying commissioning of INS Vikrant

In India, they announced the completion of tests of power units for the Indian aircraft carrier IAC-1 INS Vikrant. Additionally, Indian media reports say that the aircraft carrier itself is "at an advanced stage of construction."


During an inspection conducted by members of the EAC commission (which monitors the work of shipyards in India), it was found that the engines, gas turbines and diesel generators of the Wikrant aircraft carrier are ready for full operation.

According to the latest data, the aircraft carrier will be launched for sea trials in the summer of 2020.

From an Indian media report:

Dock tests of the aircraft carrier will soon begin, and then, by the middle of the year, full-fledged sea tests.

Initially, they planned to put the combat ship into service with the Indian Navy in 2018.

At the same time, in the Indian parliament, during the report of the Minister of Defense and representatives of the shipbuilding industry, they did not miss the opportunity to attack Russia. The industry representative said that the deadlines for commissioning the Wikrant aircraft carrier are being shifted “due to the fact that Russia has delayed deliveries aviation technicians. " MiG-29K fighters serve as this technique.

The statement is strange. And where is the supply of aviation equipment, if until now in India itself the work related to testing the power units of the aircraft carrier under construction has not been completed? Probably, the accusation made against Russia should convince parliamentarians that Indian shipbuilders have no relation to the postponement of the commissioning of Wikrant.

In India, they reminded that they were going to build another aircraft carrier - INS Vishal. Great Britain offered to help the Indians in this project.

    this very much resembles our officials. For whom, in poor condition, roads are strangely to blame for motor transport (that’s a paradox), and not for the quality of paving.

        oh, do not talk about the Turkish builders and their guarantees. They have no less fraud in the construction industry than ours. And this is despite the fact that they are flown here by our construction supervision.

      Figs knows him. overload of course it’s wild like they made the federal highway in 15 m there are no potholes, but the track appeared in 2 years. In Europe, studded tires are now prohibited, although now, like innovation, the spikes are hiding, but all this garbage also affects the wear of the canvas. Again theft in motor vehicles and non-compliance with technology.

      Example: in 2005, someone had a bite with an autodor well, and the prosecutor's office gave the command to break the autodor from above. We were attracted as specialists. Check rates checked all the rules. Let's catch on volumes well let's try. We went to a section of a repaired road for 12 km., According to the act, patching in some places, well, they looked like prosecutors scratched turnips, it’s necessary to measure each patch with a tape measure and even drill to determine the thickness of the patch, in short, they spat on this matter and let everything go on the brakes request Steal reluctantly unprovable request

      Actually, the French also helped the Indians there, but given their torment with the "de Gaulle", it is not clear how they could help. Let's see how the Britons help them.

    The contract is a contract, and it must be fulfilled, and the delivery dates are specified there. For failure to comply with the terms of the contract a fine. (Like Russia from the French raped).

    According to Indian Defense Minister Sripad Neka, the first delivery of the Vikrante aircraft carrier was forced to be postponed due to a delay in the supply of Russian aircraft equipment. Currently, the main work on the construction and refinement of the Viscrant is completed, the tests of the engine and generators are completed, and it is expected that the ship will begin sea trials next year and begin its service in 2022.

    It's funny The ship under construction in India has not even gone to sea trials, and Russia is already to blame for the failure to meet deadlines. Directly according to the Bollywood genre - here you have songs with dances against the backdrop of strong "love", and intrigue, and an evil hero.

    it’s their policy to blame everyone and everything, and then turn on bidding. To make copy-paste technology.
