In the White Sea, the main stages of the tests of the main power plant of the aircraft carrier were carried out, namely, ensuring the combat economic progress.

On Sunday night, July 28, Vikramaditya reached its maximum speed at the 29,2 node, ”told RIA“News»Representative of the enterprise.

      Thank God! Out of sight out of mind (a woman with a cart is easier). Their modernization ships have been waiting for a long time, although the place has been vacated.

    Индийский авианосец «Викрамадитья»... Только вдумайтесь в это словосочетание. Ну ничего, у нас скоро "Армату" покажут. Правда, не всем.

      Not built, but modernized. If it weren’t for the Indians, it would have been cut into metal for a long time.

    I wonder how many technical solutions from this aircraft carrier, developed with Indians' money, will migrate to Kuznetsov during its repair and modernization? smile

    There is no silver lining, they won’t pass it on - many will only be glad, a boat remains to us ... the truth would be something to cover it with.

    Upon gaining experience in modernization, the construction of aircraft carriers will now go easier.
