Reports on a new postponement of the testing of the carrier INS Vikrant caused a negative reaction in the Indian press

The Indian Navy command reports that the sea tests of the Vikrant aircraft carrier have once again been postponed.


According to the latest data, INS Vikrant will be able to enter the sea tests no earlier than six months later, "under favorable epidemic conditions."

It was originally planned to begin testing on March 12. At the Kochin shipyard, appropriate preparations were made for this. However, in connection with the pandemic, it was decided to postpone the deadlines for April. These reports provoked a disapproving reaction in a number of Indian media. When data appeared from the command of the country's Navy that the tests would begin no earlier than October, this caused real indignation in the Indian press.

It is noted that the command "did not make sure that the INS Vikrant sea tests passed without epidemic risks, although in two months this could already be done."

It should be noted here that in the Indian Navy the ship was supposed to be put into service in 2018. However, then in India they said that “a problem arose due to the delay in the delivery of deck aircraft by Russia aviation". Against this background, Indian Admiral Karambir Singh spoke out that the Wikrant would be put into service by the end of 2022 - with a delay of about 4 years.

Now, Indian experts believe that the INS Vikrant built will not be operational until 2023, which causes additional negative emotions, since China is preparing to build its second own aircraft carrier in the meantime. Recall that the first aircraft carrier built in China is the Shandong Type001A.

For reference: the aircraft carrier “Vikrant” has a length of 260 m, a width of 60 m. Its displacement is 37,5 thousand tons. Maximum speed - 28 knots. The crew is about 1550 people, including 160 officers. INS Vikrant can accommodate up to 30 aircraft and helicopters. Its main combat wing will be MiG-29K fighters. The aircraft carrier implements the Selex RAN-40L early warning radar system.

      Well, Aviki is a technique extremely complex. I don’t even remember at once, whatever western and new aircraft carriers did not receive such a serious “right shift” in terms of time.
      Well and yes, with Kuznetsov, everything is still sad, too. = _ =

      The French helped them, let them help more. There was infa that the French decided to build a new Avik, instead of "de Gaulle."

      Take your time to pour yourself mud. Not everything is transparent here. Hindus - they are still .... Hindus.
      ".... According to a news agency, Russia previously provided India with all the necessary information on a possible contract for the supply of a batch of MiG-29K carrier-based fighter aircraft for the newest Indian aircraft carrier, Wickrant, but still has not received an answer. In addition, India has not even issued a tender for the supply of carrier-based fighters.
      Russia is awaiting the appeal of the Indian Ministry of Defense to supply MiG-29K carrier-based fighter aircraft for Vikrant. Therefore, to say that the timing of the transfer of the Indian Navy aircraft carrier is delayed due to Russia, is not very correct ..... "This is information from 20. Did the Hindus issue a request for aircraft in order to conclude / execute a contract?

              The author of this text is Julia Krizhanskaya, a St. Petersburg sociologist. For this "initiative" she was expelled from EP.

    They would also order from us a project of our aircraft carrier, if they really need them. We have money and workload of orders, plus one unit. And they will put theirs into operation for a long time. They won’t be able to put the tank into operation for twenty years, and then the aircraft carrier.

      I think in the light of Almaty, about tanks, it’s not worth reproaching them especially.
      They have experience in tank building for only 20 years, against our 100 years of experience.

      And here they are - at least thirty years ago (and even then, the Ulyanovsk Kakbe TAVKR was planned). Does anyone really need this now?
      We bought “Krechets” from us (and from “non-brothers” only because they were literally sold at the price of needles (well, this is 404 more to the country, of course, we Admiral Gorshkov were sold to India more profitably, but Gorshkov "essentially a slightly improved" Gyrfalcon "and was).

        1143
        In 1993, due to a lack of funds for operation and repair, as well as a significant development of the armament resource, mechanisms and equipment, it was withdrawn from the fleet, disarmed and sold for $ 1,6 million to unidentified persons who resold the ship for 8,2 million dollars to the PRC government.

        1143.2, 1143.3
        On October 6, 1994, between TsUMR and WES (Central Administration of Material Resources and Foreign Economic Relations of the Ministry of Defense) and South Korean company Young Distribution Company (Young Distribution Corp), through the mediation of Compass, contracts were signed 148/8/11014051 and 148 / 8/11014049, in accordance with which Minsk and Novorossiysk TAVKR were sold, for 4,583 million and 4,314 million US dollars, respectively.

        1143.4
        Negotiations on India’s acquisition of Admiral Gorshkov began in 1994. On January 20, 2004, in New Delhi, the Russian Federation and India signed a package intergovernmental agreement on the free transfer to the Indian side of the hull of a heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser (the only ship of project 11434) with the condition of its repair and modernization under project 11430 at the Sevmash defense shipyard in Severodvinsk.

        1143.6
        In April 1998, Tavkr "Varyag" was sold to the Chinese company Chong Lot Travel Agency Ltd. [7] for $ 20 million, as it was announced, for the organization of a floating entertainment center with a casino, like floating entertainment centers converted from Kiev and Minsk TAVKR.

        And so the Soviet legacy went away, one “Kuznetsov” 1143.5 remained so far. :(

      They do not need our projects. They have a requirement for an aircraft carrier-nuclear power plant and an electromagnetic catapult. In the Russian Federation this is not built .... And do not talk about pictures and layouts from exhibitions. We are still transferred to the right laughing . Remember the submarine 677 Lada, which they can’t bring to mind, about the Mace, about the Almaty, Kurgan. Su-57, about frigates. About their adoption dates, which are constantly shifting for decades. Or the Mig-35 was put up for tender without an AFAR, although it was in technical requirements among the Indians. Is there such a radar on airplanes that were transmitted to the Russian Air Force ??? No, only for sale)))))

        See above my comment on “Ulyanovsk” (although in it I talked about lack of demand). In Russia - yes, they’re not building, BUT! I cannot but note that for Ulyanovsk the nuclear installation was just planned.
        Here to the electromagnetic catapults - it's you in vain. All sane people or springboards use, or steam. Even the Americans are not too sure at the moment that they just desperately need EM kata.
