Tests of the Indian aircraft carrier recognized successful

47

The running tests of the Vikramaditya ship of the Indian Navy in Russia, which caused conflicting opinions and initially called an annoying failure, are in fact an obvious success, and the problems with the power plant that the ship experienced during the tests are not even close as serious as it is reported in the media. About this Indian writes The Hindu.

After returning the ship to Sevmash a week ago, the Indian Navy Observation Team, which closely followed the sea trials, concluded that, on the whole, the ship showed itself exceptionally well and the testing program was largely completed.

The test results were analyzed, and the issues that need to be improved are reflected in the protocol signed by Vice-Admiral Nadella Niranjan Kumar, Head of the Administration for the Production and Purchasing of Warships.

The main result of the sea trials that took place was the fact that the ship of the Navy of India "Vikramaditya", converted from the cruiser "Admiral Gorshkov", who had on board both aircraft and missiles, passed the tests and became a full-fledged highly efficient aircraft carrier. The ship showed excellent seaworthiness and maneuverability and worked flawlessly during takeoffs and landings. Complex electronic, navigation equipment and other systems of the ship showed their high efficiency and reliability.

Malfunction of the boilers identified during the tests of the ship for the development of full speed, will not entail their replacement or dismantling. The problem boils down to the need to replace the insulating lining, which is located between the steel body of the boiler and the brickwork. At the request of Indian specialists, the Russian side refused to use the traditional asbestos-containing material, and the new material was slightly deformed while the ship was in full swing, which led to a partial collapse of the brickwork. Currently, the Indian side has agreed to the use of asbestos cardboard.

The problem with the boilers did not prevent Vikramadity from completing the tests. Informed sources told The Hindu that the officers of the Indian Navy were particularly impressed with the flight program. The 4 ++ generation MiG-29K and MiG-29KUB fighters performed the 41 flawless take-off and landing with a full combat load and outboard fuel tanks. The joint work of optical and electronic landing systems of Russian and Indian production allowed Russian pilots to capture the second of the three airborne landing gear cables in 70 percent of cases, which is considered an excellent result.

The ship with a displacement of 44 KT also demonstrated excellent maneuverability, describing the circulation at 18 speeds in 360 degrees with a minimum radius equal to the length of one and a half hulls.

In addition to faults with boilers, defects were also found in some other equipment installed at the insistence of the Indian side, such as refrigeration units, nitrogen generators and compressors manufactured in Germany, England, Poland and India itself.

According to sources, Russian shipbuilders promised to complete all repair work before next year, but given that preliminary tests in the White Sea can begin only at the end of May, when the ice melts, the Vikramaditya will be handed over to the Indian Navy not earlier than next fall.

      So where are the regular whiners? If foreign warriors of information war throw a fly in the ointment in a barrel of honey, then home-grown whiners "Barrel" in the ointment in the "Spoon" of honey. This is how much harm the complainants and defilers of everything and everyone living in Russia do to their country. And besides, these bastards are good for it. Sorry, but this is exactly the kind of association that such people evoke in me.

          Obstacles in life always happen and different people deal with them differently. But, if there is a pillar in the way, then it is better to get around it than to try to jump over. Working people work and build their own lives without looking at their uncle, and loafers just whine and look for punctures from others. And even if a person constantly says every day that he is a log, then he will become this log (exaggerated). This is called an anchor in psychology. So whiners have already set so many anchors in the information space that it is time for the State Department to submit them to the award for serving the interests of the United States.

            Well, if you know that these tests can hardly be called successful

              An interesting logic .. The whole article speaks of excellent test results, moreover, from the reviews of the Indian military and their own press, and you are trying to convince your point of view that everything is bad.
              Some kind of irrational approach. Are the Hindus happy? More than. So what do you dislike? It is this fact?

              Again, weird logic. If you used to write pants in your early childhood, does this mean that you do it now?
              The mace of the last 6 launches has passed without complaints. In November-December, the launch from the carrier by an external command will be tested. The missile turned out great, although it was difficult to practice. So its complexity obliges. The solutions that are implemented on it have no analogues in the world.

                Okay, let's do it the other way. You bought a car and when you run in, 2 cylinders burned out. And the seller says to you, well, the case is intact, and the paint did not get cracked. In general, the car is normal. Second, if the mace is a fucking missile, what is the submarine fleet without it? Why missiles are not installed in the mines ??? yes, if I understood correctly, she has one liquid level

                  if you take your analogy, then we are not talking about cylinders, but only about laying a cylinder block. =)) Moreover, Indians themselves insisted on a different thermal insulation, who did not want Russian asbestos.
                  Meanwhile, Russian asbestos material in this structural element is not carcinogenic. Asbestos - it is different.
                  Therefore, the Indians now agreed that they were wrong.
                  =========
                  And what, what is it (step) liquid?
                  Why did you decide that TT is better than liquid? =) Liquid rockets are much more aggressive in flight, so you know. More features, although more difficult to operate.
                  But the Mace may be such that it is beyond the capabilities of the US missile defense. The liquid stage is made specifically for work on the final section of the trajectory.
                  A very competent solution, although more difficult to implement.
                  Fleet topples without it? But have the media already been waiting? =)
                  This is "Dmitry Donskoy" and Borei.
                  The rocket has already got rid of all childhood diseases, I assure you. If not this year, then at the beginning of the next, carriers along with the rocket will be put into operation of the Navy.

        belay Didn’t the planes go to sea? To go nuts, a combat turn on an aircraft carrier !!! Try on 18 nodes (33km / h) to deploy the MACHINE with the radius of the body pontor, figs will work! In what our ship did.

      VPO,
      I agree. Alas. Not soon yet. However, we are glad that we have not lost the experience of shipbuilding. And anyway, why do we need so many Mistral? Can it be better to stir up a couple of the same Vikramadilla for yourself?

        Done different ships. And different technologies. Both are needed.
        And for Russia, aircraft carriers ... of course cool, but for what? Are we going to attack someone? We still have a lot of problems both within and near the borders. All the same, it’s too early for aircraft carriers.

        It would be better if there were now suitable shipyards, and instead of Serdyukov, a sensible admiral, a new Kolchak, would become the Minister of Defense. The experience of converting the aircraft-carrying cruiser "Admiral Gorshkov" into the aircraft carrier "Vikramaditya" could be used to convert the nuclear-powered missile cruiser "Admiral Ushakov" (formerly "Kirov") into a light nuclear-powered aircraft carrier-helicopter carrier. With a cruiser length of 250 meters and increased stability with boules, I think this is real and much faster than the construction of our Mistrals, not to mention the very distant plans with new aircraft carriers. However, these are only dreams.

        Likewise, Irkut Corporation at the expense of India and China has raised its production capabilities to such a level that the West never dreamed of. Now they want to do the same with the rest of the industries in the defense industry.

      And what do you think is the necessary minimum of a full-fledged aircraft carrier? In my opinion this is aviation based, planes take off? sit down? - an aircraft carrier! If you are talking about a nuclear power plant, steam catapults, AWACS planes, then this is optional if you intend to engage in barbaric seizure of territories far away from your native coasts and set your outlook on life, and if for defense your native coasts will help you with fuel and target designation and other necessary things

        And it’s not a useless thing, because our aviators and engineers can still experience it, work on a deck boat, and even start flying in the spring. Everything in business, serious work for several teams and design bureaus, a gift, at someone else's expense! And let the Indians observe, write down and learn theories, well, especially distinguished "good guys", you can ride a passenger on a KUBIK with a couple of three takeoffs and landings on the deck.
        In general, the Indians are great!

      Well then read this http://www.militaryparitet.com/ttp/data/ic_ttp/3563/ "The Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning is inferior to the Indian Vikramaditya" "and this is http://www.militaryparitet.com/perevodnie / data / ic_perevodnie / 3553 / "According to the plans of the Indian Navy, by 2015 it is planned to deploy two aircraft carrier strike groups led by INS Vikramaditya and the first aircraft carrier of its own construction with a displacement of 40 thousand tons under the IAC (indigenous aircraft carrier) program. The transfer of this aircraft carrier to the fleet is also delayed, entry into the Indian Navy postponed until 2018. " Hindus have agreed to the use of asbestos cardboard.

      Strange as it turns out. It seems that in the west, research is being carried out for promising aircraft carriers just not with a nuclear installation. The tactics of modern warfare are changing, and so are the tasks. The question of cost is more and more important. Of course, an air group of 20-30 aircraft / helicopters is not 75 on a Ford. But the tasks can be different. And if the ship is hit, they will sink in the same way.

      As for the Russian aircraft carrier, SUCH certainly is not needed. All the same, the basis of 82 years. Need more perfect, but not necessarily too big. The aircraft carrier is very important, but the planes are much more important.

    The previous article on sea trials of the Indian Navy ship “Vikramaditya” now causes me, after designating the details, a very dual ambiguity.
