If necessary, Russian specialists will be able to equip "Vikramaditya" air defense systems


“The Indians at one time refused to install Russian air defense systems on Vikramadityu, but we have reserved space for our air defense system there, there are rooms on the ship that are not occupied by anything, there are places where you can put launchers. This is provided by our project, ”- said Vlasov.

He recalled that this year "representatives of Sevmash and the Naval Forces of India signed a contract for technical assistance in servicing the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya in the post-warranty period."

The aircraft carrier Vikramaditya (formerly Admiral Gorshkov) was transferred to the Indian side in November 2013 g after reconstruction at the Sevmash enterprise (Severodvinsk).

    You can help the Indians understand this need! To instill a real danger of its absence.

      It always comes to them later. Like, the Americans also have nothing superfluous on their aircraft carriers. And life is how it turns. Also "Brahmos" will demand to deliver

        Bramos Indians adapt for air based. So much more effective and safer for their Vikromaditya. By the way the launch point will be distant from the aircraft carrier, and most likely the aircraft will launch on target from under the radio horizon along the control center from the AWACS aircraft. The usual practice of using carrier-based aircraft at sea.

      Why not make some money.

      Yes, they already know about it. Simply go around the market looking for cheaper. smile

      EMNIP, initially they wanted to stick Israeli "barracks" on AV.

      The Chinese would have done it. But the service contract is signed with us.

    As our Navy lacks a 2nd aircraft carrier on the TF. Many would immediately calm down in the Far East.

      Yes, we still have no first! TAKR is not an aircraft carrier. Aircraft carrier is a multi-functional combat strike unit of the ocean zone. And TAKR is just a cover for itself and the accompanying ship group in the coastal zone from the air.

        And the question is, for what tasks do we need an aircraft carrier in the Far East. Not in the future, but just wait. Even the need for the mistral was overwhelming. The defense of the Kamchatka-Kuril-Primorye arc is solved by coastal-based aircraft. Actions beyond this arc are not yet on the agenda. For "Many would immediately calm down in the Far East" while we do not need carrier-based aircraft. The appearance of strategists over the sea already causes hysteria in the Japanese and Americans.

    A single aircraft carrier, even with advanced air defense, will not survive. Only in the AUG.
    Well, if the Indians change their minds and order our air defense systems. Another question is whether we can deliver everything on time without prejudice to replacing obsolete systems in Russia?
    And so this unfortunate "Vikramaditya" was fooled ... Maybe that's why the Indians didn't immediately install our air defense system.

      Where have you seen Amer Aircraft Carriers go one at a time? They are always part of the destroyers. This is normal and correct. It is on their destroyers that the air defense and missile defense systems are installed.

    The Indians have a very balanced and well-thought-out policy regarding armaments. There are many examples of this. They almost always achieve their original goal, whether it is price or the required characteristics of weapons. Aircraft carrier is no exception. But the most eloquent example from history is the creation of the An-32 in the USSR, because The An-26 did not suit them ... And the developers of air defense systems, if necessary to install them on a ship, will have to prove their superiority over competitors (TTX and price) more than once. You can only wish patience and good luck.

    This aircraft carrier was built on the basis of the heavy aircraft carrier cruiser "Admiral Gorshkov" through deep modernization. The modernization was carried out by the Northern Machine-Building Enterprise in Severodvinsk. November 16, 2013 the ship was transferred to the Indian Navy.

    Of course, I am an amateur in the military assessment of what is happening, especially such as the purchase and sale of domestic aircraft carriers. The question is for connoisseurs of military observation, but do we not need a floating airfield on the water, which has the opportunity to swim to any coast, of any country not friendly to us, and I can’t iron it at the most? Or we have enough aircraft carriers with helicopter carriers that we can afford to arm sovereign countries that are loyal to us for money. I also realize that we ourselves need money for rearmament from the sale of weapons, because only from the sale of our weapons do we now have the most advanced defense industry.

    It seems the Indians have already resolved the issue with the Navy's air defense systems for the coming years.
    TSAMTO. By the end of 2015, the Indian Navy command plans to begin equipping surface warships with the Israeli Barak-8 anti-aircraft missile system.
    According to Janesie International with reference to official sources, in November 2014 in Israel, the program of test launches of missiles was successfully completed, which allows us to begin their mass production.
    Since 8, the Barak-2006 system was jointly developed by Rafael Advanced Systems / Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI) and the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) of the Indian Ministry of Defense.
    The production of the Barak-8 air defense system will be organized at the facilities of the state-owned company Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL). The first ship on which the Barak-8 complex with 32 vertical launch missiles will be installed will be the Kolkata URO destroyer, built in India as part of Project-15A. The ship was transferred to the Indian Navy in July 2014. Then the air defense missile system "Barak-8" will be installed on the destroyers "Kochi" and "Chennai". The aircraft carrier Vikramaditya is to be equipped with the Barak-8 air defense system in 2017 during its first scheduled overhaul.The total cost of the Barak-8 program is estimated at $ 1,4 billion, including $ 350 million for development, the financing of which was divided equally between Rafael-IAI and DRDO.
    The air defense system includes the advanced multi-functional radar E / LM 2248 MF-STAR with a phased array antenna that can simultaneously track surface targets at ranges up to 25 km and fighter aircraft at ranges up to 250 km. The range of destruction of missile targets is about 70 km.
    The Indian Navy at the first stage in 2000 acquired the Barak-1 air defense system with a launch range of 10 km and equipped 8 warships with them, including the Viraat aircraft carrier.

    And drum-type launchers (for which there seems to be a lot of complaints), or can something newer be delivered?
    Altair MNIIRE OJSC, which is part of the Almaz-Antey Air Defense Concern, has created and is in service with the Navy, a range of air defense systems that provide air defense of ships at the far frontier - Rif-M, and the average - Shtil-1 and the neighbor - "Blade".
