The aircraft carrier Vikramaditya, intended for the transfer of the Indian Navy, is ready for 85%

20 September 2011 G., Aviation Explorer - The readiness of the heavy aircraft carrying cruiser Admiral Gorshkov (Vikramaditya), modernized for the Indian Navy, is more than 85%, Interfax reports.


"The readiness of the ship is already more than 85 percent," said the representative of the delegation of the joint headquarters of the Indian Navy, the head of the production and procurement department of ships, Vice Admiral Nadel Nirajan Kumar. At present, the delegation of the combined headquarters of the Indian Navy is at the Sevmash production association with an inspection check.

"Today, the work is proceeding according to schedule, and the technical problems that arise are largely solved thanks to Rosoboronexport, which always supports us. I am confident that the ship will be handed over to the customer in December 2012," said Roman Trotsenko, President of the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

Earlier it was reported that the contract for the modernization of TAKR Admiral Fleet Soviet Union Gorshkov "(in the Indian Navy, it will be called" Vikramaditya, which means "Almighty") was concluded with India in 2004. The contract provided for the allocation of $ 974 million for the restoration and modernization of the ship, as well as $ 530 million for the supply of 16 fighters MiG-29K and Ka-31 and Ka-27 marine anti-submarine helicopters.

    But in 2008 there was a rumor citing an anonymous source, that if India does not comply with the funding for modernization of the ship, the option of Admiral Gorshkov’s joining the Russian Navy is not ruled out. And it worked, India began to pay, but it’s a pity to leave, even though it was laid in 78, but it’s a pity anyway

      It’s a pity, it’s a pity, on the one hand, and on the other hand, the production technology of aircraft carriers has not been worked out yet, so far let them practice on the export, and if they fill up our hand, they will build a fully thought out combat unit and it’s advisable that I don’t do it ...

        And not only this. Amer, Europepp and even China use SAP programs to the full. I have never heard that they are used in the defense industry. Again there was infa that a new power plant was developed for atomic icebreakers, but have they tried to put it on warships, even in theory? What happens to our Navy pilots who fly from an aircraft carrier? After all, they are extremely few. Will Saki airdrome be tidied up and leased from Ukraine, at least together with the Indians? We have a full mess with deck avicia. Admiral Kuznetsov is slowly decaying and decaying - he needs major repairs. And if he becomes a joke, where will the pilots take off from? And where is the grant that they will not sell it to China for nails? All this is very, very sad ...

          I come from the city of Saki (more precisely, from the village, which is very close). Every year the airfield there is getting worse and worse. To repair the runway, the "springboard", and even more so to upgrade this complex, no one is going to (just paint the gates and curbs bleached). Well, once again in half a year they will drive off a tractor with a plow and dig a neighborhood around the airfield - to be honest, it is not clear why ... like a fencing of a military facility? O_o
          Anyone can go to this airdrome. In the summer there are grazing cows, between runways. In winter, if the frost hits - from this springboard on a sled ride. Last winter, familiar guys drove there on sleds, pieces of linoleum, etc. - That is, for 15 years (which I remember) nothing has changed, even the signs that this is a military facility did not bother to put. IMPROVEMENT!
          Honestly, you understand that this is a military airfield only in the summer, when the guys from Russia (when I was little - 91-92 years old) flew in May, flew in September, flew in from 4 in the morning and arrived to study (take-off and landing on the springboard) hours to 12 nights ..... Now they fly for 3 weeks and fly from 6 am to 8 pm approximately). At another time - an abandoned military unit (friends of the barracks go to the soldiers to thump - this is generally horror). When I was at school, I was fond of running. So right through this airdrome I drove to the sea (about 6 kilometers about the territory of the military unit), at least once someone but a dog paid attention to me ....

          This is how things stand on a unique complex built to teach pilots how to take off from a springboard / aircraft carrier. It is sad and sad to see all this ....

          ps It’s good that at least the soldiers stopped going AWOL at night to earn food in neighboring villages .... Ato in the early 90s conscripts were the main labor force in the village. It gets a little dark - 3-4 people knock on the gates ... They ask for food, but in return they suggest digging up a garden or chopping wood ... Here such a harsh truth of life .... recourse

        The problem is not only in the hands and heads, the main thing is the increase in value

    Well, at least they’ll get a hand in them, they’ll learn, but for themselves they will start building. You look and the production base will appear.

    The Indians were well promoted. 970 million dollars is the cost of building a new Nimitz-type multipurpose nuclear carrier!

        But the readiness at the beginning of the ship’s path seemed 70%. However, as I understood it, only the external building remained and the rest was redone. Well, anyway, the amount is impressive, especially compared to the original.

    China bought the "Varangian", with the help of Ukrainian specialists it was completed, it is already floating. And he can be called an aircraft carrier. Why did Russia go the wrong way? There is a lot of experience in designing and in building zero. Even the finished trough is redone for rabid grandmas.

    The most important thing is to do it qualitatively, and if they screw up again, then in general we will stop buying weapons

      based on the trends of recent years, it’s not worth counting on quality for five points, but on the four it can also be pulled up, at least we’ll wake up hopes, otherwise something is really embarrassing for the military-industrial complex request

    We sell our aircraft carrier, and ourselves ("Mistral") we buy abroad. The logic is little understood. Although they are for different purposes. But if so our fleet needs helicopter-control ships (the current Navy Commander-in-Chief V. Vysotsky is hard to understand - then he says one thing, then another), then it would not be so difficult to remake Admiral Gorshkov: the main thing is that there is a platform. And as for the Admiral Kuznetsov brand, so with our basing and logistics support system, as well as the qualifications of military personnel, the vaunted Mistrals will quickly turn into regular customers of ship repair enterprises. And in general, why are they needed? He carried a powerful and experienced “Nevsky Design Bureau”, there were unloaded shipyards, the same Baltic shipbuilding plant in St. Petersburg, and the Northern Sea Route in Severodvinsk. Hundreds of related enterprises for the shipbuilding industry vegetate and bend without government orders, many thousands of people leave these enterprises and lose their qualifications for any piece of bread. From all we can conclude unequivocally: the current leadership of the fleet, (what does the field furniture do with it?) Pursue a policy of destruction of the fleet. F. Gromov and V. Kuroyedov have done little trouble, so everything must be finished.

      The cost of owning an aircraft carrier is much higher than a helicopter carrier, no matter how much you like, but Russia is not so rich.

        no matter how much you want but Russia is not so rich.

        but we drive gas and oil to the west, we invest revenue in the American economy, if we collect all the funds of our oligarchs and politicians, I think it’s enough to completely renew the military equipment fleet and build a fleet commensurate with the USSR Navy.

    At the moment, our surface fleet is inferior to Sweden by 2 times, Germany by 5 times, France by 20 times, I am silent about the United States .. State. the program to destroy our armed forces has entered the last stage .. wait for NATO to visit soon ..

        That's just because of people like hundert, who are indifferent and naively believe in zombies, they can do whatever they want with our country! And you continue to believe in the tale of the invincibility of our Armed Forces, and that we are not demolished because we have a cool army and not a nuclear potential ..

        The grounds of my numbers - see the series of programs Secrets of forgotten victories, and in particular the “Flagship” series. And by the way, the NATO expert assessment is even more pessimistic than these numbers ..

          if man, then prove that our surface fleet is twice as inferior to Sweden, Germany 2 times, France 5 times. can you confirm your words?

            Read the message above, in this series of programs, there is such data that was previously secret, and I think these people who know the whole history of our aircraft, and everything that happens in them can be trusted.
            But don’t you think someone will say that our aircraft are not the best and not the strongest, but they simply won’t allow this, why demoralize the population?
