Tomorrow the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya will be handed over to Indian sailors

The crew and the transfer team of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya complete the final preparations for the transfer of the ship to the Indian Navy. The official ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, November 16. The Russian delegation is headed by Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin, and from the Indian side, Arakkaparambil Curian Anthony, Minister of Defense.


“The ceremony will take place in any kind of weather,” assured the correspondents of “RG” on Sevmash, where the ship is now tested. The commander of the Indian crew, Commodore Suraj Berri, and the responsible deliverer, Igor Leonov, allowed us to explore the entire aircraft carrier from the inside and outside.

At the exit to the White Sea, Igor Leonov said, Vikramaditya will take on board the necessary supply of diesel fuel and take a course to the Barents Sea. And then around Europe, to the place of permanent basing off the west coast of India.

The formal diarchy will be over by that time: since November 16, the ship will completely go under the command of the Indian crew led by Commodore Berry. However, at the time of the transition to the crew will be seconded a team of factory specialists and contractors in the number of 183 people. The exact route and timetable for the transition, for obvious reasons, is not detailed, but as one of the possible options, the passage through the Suez Canal is considered ...

Now, on the flight deck, work is being completed on the restoration of a special anti-slip coating, fairly worn during the training takeoffs and landings of the deck MiGs in August-September in the Barents Sea.

      don't be sorry
      even the modernized Gorshkov / Vikra remains not the best aircraft carrier
      but now Sevmash will be able to closely engage in the modernization of Kuznetsov and Nakhimov

        As for Kuznetsov, I’m not sure that something cardinal is waiting for him, the maximum current cosmetic repair, if you put it on a deep modernization for several years (at our pace), then all of our deck aircraft will lose their skills and even a thread will not help here. We need a second aircraft carrier, but it will not be and will not be in the near future.

          and in a dry dock is it really impossible to conduct work?


          or Kuzya’s life went completely without repair?

            So after all, at your post above it is a question of repair at Sevmash, and not SRZ-82. Yes, and the PD-50 which you have in the photo makes the dock repair of almost all large surface ships, submarines, vessels of the auxiliary fleet of the SF. Where can they make a dock if you put Kuzyu in it for a couple of years?
            or Kuzya’s life went completely without repair?

            He certainly didn’t have an average. Current and dock are certainly held.

      We are glad that at least one ship did not repeat the fate of its sisters-thorns - it did not become an entertainment complex (casino) or a heap of scrap metal! You know perfectly well the fate of "Kiev", "Novorossiysk", "Minsk". After all, if it were not for the Indians, it would be so. And so, the Admiral Gorshkov will still walk on the seas-oceans! Even under a different name and flag.

        I know. But for the sake of objectivity, it should be noted that the "sister-thorns" of "Gorshkov" by the time of their sale practically exhausted the resource of their SEUs. And this happened because the coastal infrastructure for these ships was not created ...

        And so, will still walk on the seas-oceans "Admiral Gorshkov"

        Smaller potties, please ... For the "Gorshkov" would look much better in the Pacific Fleet (for example) under the St. Andrew's flag and its real name ... Or do you want to say that having another aircraft carrier in service now (and in some unknown future!) The Russian Navy would be the loser? ..

          do not tell tales
          the difference between the Mig-29K of the 80s and the current one is the same as between Gorshkov and Vikramadatya

          of course, there is no direct merit of the Indians, except that their order helped to start mass production

        Quotes:
        "... The crew of the Vikramaditya (Russian) consisted of 357 sailors, 70 officers and 150 petty officers. At the same time, about half of the seamen-petty officers came from the reserve. Among the middle and senior command personnel, the bulk also consisted of people with naval experience: at least two dozen people served on the aircraft carrier "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov" - from the ship's commander and senior assistant to the commanders of combat units ... "

        "... Over the past five years, I have become accustomed to celebrating three holidays of the Indian people: the day of the Indian Navy, the Day of the Republic of India and the Day of India's independence from Great Britain," the commander of the Vikramaditya Igor Ryabko jokes in his online diary. However, reading his diary, you understand that this is not a joke at all: all the mentioned holidays are really celebrated on board the aircraft carrier. Along with the Day of the Navy, Day of Russia and the Day of our independence from the "Polish lords" (November 4, if anyone does not remember).

        Indians on "Vikramaditya" are currently divided into three conditional groups. The first, the group overseeing the repair and modernization of the aircraft carrier, is headed by the 1st rank captain of the Indian Navy Kudravalli Srinivas, the second (the Indian crew proper) is the XNUMXst rank captain Suraj Berry. It is Berry, along with Igor Ryabko, who is the commander of the Vikramaditya. The third group is formed by the acceptance and transfer commission headed by its chairman, Rear Admiral of the Indian Navy Hari Kumar, who since his arrival in Severomorsk is considered the eldest among his compatriots ...
