    When they will finish building this "Vishap" ... Moreover, there were rumors that the Indians from the States were going to acquire deck planes for it. Although initially yes, our MiG-29K were planned. The decision on the country-supplier of fighters will be more political, in my opinion.

      ... at least 4-5 years, if everything is according to plan, but nevertheless this is good news (although it must be admitted that while it’s a pitchfork on the water ...). There is great competition in this market, therefore, it seeks to conclude this A contract is definitely necessary.

        Vishal is still being designed. And how are the Indians doing with the completion of the Vikrant? The MiG-29K was also planned there. Of course, not 50 pieces, but only 12 - 14.

          In 2018, they are going to put into operation.
          So they and Vishap intend to join the fleet in the early 2020s. There is not much time left, what kind of design? Should already be on the slipway. smile

        All is correct. For Admiral Kuznetsov, an 100 regiment has been formed; it is already fully equipped. Need a foreign order. Who is the regular customer of MiG-29K / CUB - India. Everything is logical. And they are with planes and we have plants plow to the fullest.

          In general, it would be nice to form a couple of regiments for yourself, so that rotation could be carried out.

        Yes, I agree, the competition is very high. It can be assumed that if India’s purchase of the Rafalees for the Air Force does take place, then it is likely that they will acquire decked Rafals for their aircraft carrier. Surely there will be a mixed base on this aircraft carrier: its light Tejas fighters and medium multi-role fighters. It should be noted that the MiG-29K objectively loses to the more advanced decked Rafal.

        Why is that surprising? The series is on and what problems are there to bungle fifty dollars? Another thing is that the Indians, cunningly turned inside out with fur, within the framework of "diversification" will try to lower the price, or they will put a stupid new car on deck, they have such a quirk - like not depend on one supplier.

          It is logical --- this is not about India. Any surprises are possible. In addition, they will try to bring down the price and "get out" of technology as much as possible. We have long-standing contacts, we have established contact, it is possible to fulfill the order just in time, their deck ships are already flying on MiGs --- this is only a plus for us. It remains to show the superiority of our machine over the aircraft of other companies. "Fight" will be grown-up. It also intervenes that the Americans can offer a complete set: a catapult, fighters and AWACS.

      Keyword -If - they now have a large selection of offers, and the good old kickbacks have not gone away, all the latest tenders that we failed tenders talk about this.

    Yes, the MIG Corporation is ready, but the Indians have been less and less willing to buy our aircraft ...

    Under the KA 52 helicopters, design changes were made in the Mistral. It is logical during construction to determine specific aircraft for basing on an aircraft carrier, as Logistic service schemes for different aircraft vary significantly.

      There 2-4 EM catapult launch are planned. That is, it opens the opportunity to base any aircraft. Although Rafali, even the Hornets, even the F-35, even the MiGs.

      Plus, the aircraft carrier will not be very soon, through 12-15. Therefore, the choice will be very good!

      On the contrary, illogical. because the aircraft carrier can sail 50 years, and you offer him to live with one type of aircraft 50 years?

    Everyone is trying to buy what is better and cheaper, but that’s not all, there are still operating costs, maintainability, the possibility of modernization, the political component plays an important role, so there are many factors, and you can find a lot of formal reasons for refusal, and what’s behind it in fact ... In short, for the special field, the field is not plowed, work guys, not all the hucksters are protected. This is national security, primarily ours, in the second buyer.

    If in Syria our aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" would have successfully bombed the ISIS with the help of the MiG-29. then you look, maybe the interest in them has increased ...

    aud13 was held invo, somewhere in the fall it is planned to go kuzi to Syria. then our migi_ will work, they will appear in all their glory and in full growth. I want to ask the Don, forgive me of course, but how is this our moment to lose (and even objectively) to the paddling pool? In my opinion, a large amount of criticism of KB, such as anti-advertising, has reached its goal not only over the hill, but also at home.

    And everything goes to that, as if (including here on the site) did not talk about the expediency-inexpediency of using our only aircraft carrier in Syria. Look at the sequence of using our forces and means: front-line aviation, long-range aviation, NK with "Caliber" from the Caspian Sea, submarine, again with "Caliber" from the Mediterranean. For the full package, there is just an aircraft carrier, well, maybe more Iskanders (but what - anything can happen). It turns out that nothing is impossible for us - no.

      And I don’t like the fact that almost all combat-ready ships end up in one place, "exposing" their own shores.

      "Close" Mediterranean Sea is easy enough ...

        Yes, completeness to you. As long as everything is calm in the sea areas of Russia (holy, holy), there are small ships on the Black Sea that are not pulled anywhere.
        And then, surface ships, crews, weapons simply need to be "tested" in a combat situation.
        Do not forget that the nuclear submarines control the border crossing in the strategic direction.

          In the Baltic yes, calmly, from there you can transfer.
          But the North and the Pacific, I would not greatly weaken ... The submarines there are especially on war ...
