34

There are reports from India of an incident involving the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya of the Indian Navy. According to press reports, citing a spokesman for the Indian Navy, there was a fire aboard the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya.


From the report:

The crew of the aircraft carrier "Vikramaditya" noticed smoke emanating from the compartment in which the sailors' cabins are located. The personnel on duty proceeded to immediately identify the source of the fire.

About where exactly the same hearth was located has not yet been reported. But it is known that they managed to cope with the fire.

The command of the Indian Navy claims that the fire was extinguished in a short time, there were no casualties or injuries as a result of the incident.

Indian Navy representative:

Initially, it was reported that several sailors could be blocked in the compartment. However, the verification of the personnel and monitoring of the compartments of the warship showed that all crew members are safe. There are no threats to their lives.

It is known that at the time of the outbreak of the fire, the Indian aircraft carrier Vikramaditya was located at the Karwar military base in the state of Karnataka in the south-west of the country. At the time of the fire, there were about 900 people on board the ship.

The damage that was caused to the aircraft carrier as a result of the fire is not reported at the moment.

Recall that the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier is of Soviet origin. The ship was handed over to India in 2013 after a deep modernization of the Admiral Gorshkov TAVRKR. It was built at the Black Sea Shipyard. Today, this aircraft carrier is the flagship of the Indian naval forces.

          If he is in the base, then not really))) the crew will be taken to the shore, and the iron? As the mattress makers say, the best friends of the Indians, they do not need either nuclear submarines or aircraft carriers)))

        I didn’t look for the translation of “Vikramaditya”, but in Russian it is somehow ... not very associated, I remembered the cartoon “... what do you call a boat ...”, something is wrong with this aircraft carrier from the very beginning. Although the phrase "... a mechanism is in the hands of a peasant, a piece of iron" can be used for Indian operators.

          Nicholas,
          Vikramaditya or Vikrama (Vikramâditya = vikrama - protrusion, step, strength, courage, from the root kram - to step + vi and âditya - the sun), is one of the most famous names of Indian history, the king of Ujjain in Western India, on the northern slope of the Vindhya ridge. This name, like the name of Caesar in Europe, became a symbol and title, and many subsequent rulers added it to their names.

          Consonant with "Valkyrie":
          Valkyrie (Old Norse valkyrja - “choosing the slain”) in Scandinavian mythology is the daughter of a glorious warrior, or king, who flies on a winged horse over the battlefield and decides which of the soldiers who fell in battle to get into the heavenly palace - Valhalla ... Fertilizing dew drips from the mane of her horse (cloud), and light emanates from her spear.

          I think the Russians / Rusichs / Russ also do not have a devil in a skirt ... wink

      I have suspicions about the thermal insulation of the boilers in the engine room. There can be, of course, any option - this offhand.

      The fact is that according to the original project, asbestos was used. However, during the modernization and restructuring of Gorshkov for a foreign customer, the Indian side had complaints about the "environmental friendliness" of the material. There was a demand to replace him with another.
      Which, in principle, was done. This cost Rosoboronexport together with our industry some efforts, but the customer was satisfied. With the caveat that the new solution is worse and less secure.

      if there is a fire in the cabin, then with an above average probability it all started with a 127 / 220V step-up transformer. All appliances are 220V, the board is 127V. It is strange to hear from a man with sea straps that the Indians are to blame, because the gypsies. Or is the color of the shoulder straps on the site just trick? Do other nations have ships not burning? Our mechanic himself burned the sauna: they opened the door to it and it flashed like a match from the flow of oxygen - it was switched on for a day.

      The fire at the "Admiral Kuznetsov" will postpone the completion of its repair for at least a year

      But the fleet will not abandon the only aircraft carrier

    There are many reasons for a fire in a residential area
    The charger for the mobile phone caught fire, an electric kettle or a boiler, another electrical appliance, the carrier is closed, smoking in the wrong place - the list is large.

        Old grandfather, I wonder, and where did I send?
        The company bought a Mercedes plant AvtoVAZ. Reconfigured production, start the conveyor. . . Bam! at the exit of the Lada!
        Dismantle the equipment, drove the new one from Germany, installed, adjusted, launched. ! ! ! Lada again!
        Why all the plant personnel are dismissed, workers from Germany are brought in, they are established, checked, and launched. ! At the exit again - Lada!
        There is a hill near the plant; ch. engineer and director of the plant (both with the prefix Ex .. Look at all this. Engineer to the director:
        - And I told you - the place is damned! ! ! And then all the "hands from the ass, hands from the ass"

        The first comment was the same, only the video. Maybe for the sake of my outlook I can cut someone the same thing, but with the participation of Stoyanov and Oleinikov? wink

    The ship was laid down according to project 1143.4 (initially - "Kharkov", then until October 4, 1990 - "Baku", hereinafter - "Admiral of the Soviet Union Fleet Gorshkov").
    They are just terribly unlucky there. In 2016, two people died from poisoning with toxic gases in the sewage treatment department, and in April 2019 there was already a fire in the engine room and a young officer died ...

    Are you talking about the crew cabin? So I missed something! I thought it was just a fire and it is not clear where.
    But the asbestos story took place.
