This is stated in the press release of the Russian Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation MiG from 13 September 2013.


The press release says that the MiG-29K and MiG-29KUB ship-borne fighters of the Russian Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation MiG have successfully completed a series of flights from the deck of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya, which is undergoing tests in the Barents Sea. The flights were organized in cooperation with JSC “PO“ Sevmash ”within the framework of the acceptance program of the naval forces of India agreed with the Indian side.

In the course of the flights, the crews of RSK MiG OJSC provided control testing of the aircraft carrier’s technical equipment. The training program, in particular, included a series of flights from the deck of a ship at night, pair-ups and landings with a minimum interval, flights with a full combat load.

Night landing of the prototype ship-based MiG-29K fighter (tail number "941") on the deck of the aircraft carrier rebuilt for India Vikramaditya. The plane was piloted by test pilot of RSK MiG OJSC Sergei Rybnikov. Landing was made in 23.12 PM 23.08.2013 (c) of JSC RAC MiG


Sergei Korotkov, General Director of RAC MiG, OJSC, gave a high assessment to the work of the team that provided round-the-clock flights of airplanes in the waters of the Barents Sea.

“Flights from the deck of an aircraft carrier complete an important stage in the life cycle of an 11430 project aircraft carrier and the MiG-29K / KUB program as a whole, which MiG Corporation implements in the interests of the Indian Navy,” said Sergei Korotkov.

The next stage of the work of the MiG RSK under the MiG-29K / KUB program provides for the training of marine pilots from the deck of an aircraft carrier aviation Indian Navy.

In 2011, JSC RAC MiG completed the supply of the Indian Navy of the first batch of MiG-16К / КUB aircraft to 29 under the 2004 contract of the year. Since 2012 of the year, RAC MiG has been supplying the Indian Navy with the second batch of 29 MiG-29K / KUB fighters under the 2010 contract of the year. MiG is also planning to launch deliveries of MiG-2013K / KUB aircraft to the Ministry of Defense of Russia under the contract for an 29 aircraft signed in 24 of the year in 2012. The aircraft will go into service with the Naval Aviation of the Russian Navy.



The take-off and landing of the prototype ship-based MiG-29K fighter (tail number "941") with a typical combat load specified for the customer on the deck of the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier rebuilt for India. The aircraft carried mock-ups of two X-35U anti-ship missiles and two short-range air-to-air missiles, the P-73E. The car was piloted by test pilot of RSK MiG OJSC Andrei Shishov. 21.08.2013 (c) RAC MiG OJSC

    Well, when everything is done in Russian, everything works like a clock, otherwise the Indians almost killed the aircraft carrier with their desires.

      It would be better not to sell them to India or China at one time, but re-equip them for their fleet. Now we do not build ships of such classes, and it’s not a fact that in the coming years we will be able not only financially, but also technically to pull it ... So now they would sail under our flag, and the change would be during the modernization of "Admiral Kuznetsov"

        Each political and military-strategic situation requires an adequate response. It’s not a fact that if a neighbor has a smartphone from Apple, then others need exactly one or a copy of this. Parity and smart strategy are made up of the combinatorics of various means of deterrence and retaliation. It is nice to see our developments among the advanced ones that meet a wide range of modern requirements for weapons and military equipment.

      We would also be useful, though 10 years of modernization is a long time ...

    And they said that the Mig-29K load will be higher than that of the SU-33?

      It was not about the combat load (that is, not about the weight of the ASP lifted by the vehicle at a time), but about the "combat potential" - its capabilities in battle, both with air and surface / ground targets. And this is really so.

      The combat load on the MiG-29K / KUB will be more "nomenclature", especially in terms of the positions of the "VP" and "V-Z" missiles, surpass the Su-33 (since it does not have such missiles at all), but quantity, it will not exceed by very much (if we consider a real carrier-based fighter Su-33 taking off from the deck), because. it loses much to the Su-33 in terms of range.

        That's what it is about. It is not correct to compare the plane of the late 80s and early 2010s. And taking into account, in the photo you can see, 29 takes off from the PTB, already says that the combat radius is at the expense of the combat load. Modernization of the Su-33 for new avionics and new engines to the level of "SU-35" will give much greater opportunities, both combat and operational.

          About that and speech


          It’s just not about that, or we don’t understand each other or we’re just talking about different things!

          I'll try on my fingers:

          1.Comparing the Su-33 and 29K is generally not correct as a deck boat for the simple reason that the Su-33 was created specifically for the Ulyanovsk project with a catapult, but Simonov and Belyakov are different weight categories (when it became clear that Ulyanovsk would not exist) and Kuzyu "sat down" the Su-33, which is not fully adapted for "combat" operation to be operated from Kuzi (this is almost the main reason that all work on the Su-33M and Su-27KUB was "frozen", i.e. Because why make an airplane that, in order to fly somewhere, has to take only one or two missiles, or take off with empty tanks and then refuel in the air), but we do not have any "deck" tankers either.
          So Kuzya walked with the Su-33 "parade weekend" (two missiles and a cannon).

          And given the photo shows, 29 takes off from the PTB, already says that the combat radius to the detriment of the combat load.


          In our "small" aviation almost everywhere, except for the "family" of Su-27x, unfortunately.
          So without PTB .... I can't, or "only until the 4th turn."
          And to 5700 kg of fuel where you will fly away, and if you still use afterburner modes, then .. well .. well.

          In principle, it will .. if it is used from another deck, and not from Kuzi, well, or from the ground!
          And so ... forget about the fact that the plane may be able to ... break away, but will the Kuzi's deck withstand, after all, compare with what weights the Su-33 is flying now and with kaimi you "plan" ... after "modernization" wink

            "Kuzya" is going to be repaired for three years, from where and to where the 29th will fly. Train on our THREAD. And so naval aviation will have a not very long, but serious "arm" And according to the nomenclature, the SU-33 was originally created for the X-35?

              Since they will do it in just 3 years (if they do it in our ... or rather, with our "guides" everything can be expected), but for now they will study and train from Thread. wink

              No, this is all Wishlist and not under the 35th, but under the 31st missiles ... but they are "Wishlist", and remained on paper, unfortunately crying

    It remains only to wish that further all tests pass quickly and without incident ... For us, after all, this is the same experience. And on the basis of it, so that new, more advanced ships and planes would be created for the Russian fleet

    The successful completion of work under the Indian contract is a great success for the SMP. The main thing is that experience has been gained and production has been restored. Now, if necessary, it will be possible to make an aircraft carrier ship for the Russian fleet in Russia. It is a fact. And this is the main achievement of the whole epic with "Vikramaditya"
