      Pilot ordered to fly out to sea and jettison 2nd drop tank. Tries. Malfunction. 2nd tank doesn't drop. Tries 4 times, doesn't happen. 3/n





    3. While returning for a landing attempt, the malfunctioning 2nd drop tank falls, crashing into car park near CISF quarters. Close shave. 4/n

      Pilot finally lands MiG-29K safely at Vizag. Investigation ordered. Extremely serious snag/malfunction, could have doomed aircraft. 5/5

    Russia Supplies Indian Navy With Over 100 Engines MIG-29 Fighter Jets
    [​IMG]
    Russia's United Engine Corporation has delivered over 100 turbojet engines for the Mikoyan MiG-29 (NATO reporting name Fulcrum) fighter aircraft used by the Indian Navy, the UEC said in a press release issued on Tuesday.
    MOSCOW
    — The RD-33MK turbojet engine is a modernized modification of the basic RD-33 engine installed on all versions of famous MiG-29 fighter jet. The engine has high thrust-to-weight ratio, low specific fuel consumption and is equipped with modern digital electronic management and control system.
    "Chernyshev Moscow Machine-Building Enterprise [part of UEC] has manufactured and delivered over 100 RD-33MK turbojet engines for the Indian Navy. The deliveries were carried out within the earlier agreed contract between the Russian Aircraft Corporation MiG and the Indian Defense Ministry," the press release said.
    UEC is a subsidiary company of the United Industrial Corporation, producing various engines including those for military and civil aviation.

    "The Navy has been given permission by the Defence Ministry to scout global markets for an aircraft carrier-based fighter aircraft for its future requirements"

    Thats how paid media works, if you know what I mean. The Defence ministry did not sanction any such purchases, nor any official tender. Infact they didn comment at all.
    And who the hell even says the Navy junked Tejas? LOL

    Adm Lanba said that Tejas doesn't meet the navy requirement in its current form and they are looking further beyond Mig-29K for Carrier based aircraft. But our media house and reporters and smart enough to see through and come up with any version they like.

    As Chinmoy said that the current form of Tejas doesnot meet the requirements of Navy as per them they do not see it meeting any time soon(in a decade even) therefore they are looking for an alternative.
    Had this been IAF I would not have defended them but i am aware that IN has been patient and they were serious towards NLCA but ADA DRDO IAF factored in to the extent that such an statement had to come out in open.

    "As Chinmoy said that the current form of Tejas doesnot meet the requirements of Navy"

    Yes true. That was cleared by the Navy years ago, that they would go for the LCA mk2 with a more powerful engine, 2025 onwards. Naval LCA mk1 would be a test bed and to train pilots as well, and could also be used from Shore based facilities.

    "as per them they do not see it meeting any time soon(in a decade even)"

    And that part is the added masala part by Mr Pulkit and thats again how exactly Paid journalism works ;)

    With the Mig 29K's having a availability rate of 30 odd percent and INS Vikrant being ready by the end of the decade, the Navy cannot wait till 2025 for the LCA Mark-2. The Navy will have 12 to 15 Migs flying off 2 carriers. So the Navy seems to be going for a stop gap fighter before the 1st Mark 2 is ready in 2025.

    I seriously do not understand why you think i mis quoted you .
    I had your entire quote added in my post.

    No Masala no Troll pure facts............

    You just now said by 2025 they will get the MK2 version that is 10 years from now correct.

    +
    If they had that vision they would have already requested for a new aircraft earlier .

    1.The Navy was well aware of its Serviceability and High maintenance requirements before making the purchase.

    2. Anyways, Serviceability can be improved during wartime by pouring in more manpower and money, which is not required during peacetime

    3. Its not a imported toy store. - Bought the toy, and now i dont like it and i want a new toy for so called "Stop gap" - Btw this word is the new fashion in the Indian armed forces, used whenver they want to import and get bribes.

    4. Im sure you know how long it takes to complete all the procedure to make an import? 36 Rafale MMRCA took 15 years(2001-2016) + 3 more years for deliveries to begin. = 18 years for 36 Jets.
    Do the math.

    IN always going to buy an alternative aircraft this is nothing new and was known since 2012, MK1 was intended to fly along MIG-29k or any-other fighter from IN carriers, This was published back in 2010 by IN officers involve in Tejas Program.

    What change suggested by new Admiral is that MK1 will not get privileged of operating from carrier heck not even fly under IN colors regardless its for training or front-line service.

    The flavor he gave in his comment suggested to junk platform so does Infrastructure created for R&D to create India`s Naval aviation capabilities which are created based scientific as well as strategic supervisions of many Admirals and scientific advisers to GOI before him.

    This sort of behavior also show our dear Admiral in bad light as almost same as the one of those IAF chiefs asking for urgent import in other words kickback to secure his personal life after retirement.

    Don't take it wrong or personal.
    But this is first time, u have accepted we have issue with our officers (Not all, but few and those who are in command or major decision making).
    Same issue is in all armed forces of india. U left behind army.
    Ministers in india are more concerned that they get any project annouced in their home states, get re-elected next time based on it, hell with india's need
    Firing on LOC, soldiers get's ambused, Traitors children getting govt jobs and Government busy in election of 1 state, hell with nation.
    All infrastruture made, money invested..hell with that, need imported thing. just for kickbacks.
    We reject indian made sights, Indian made Body armor or helmets, but when same things are used by foreign armies, we come out of sleeps.
    Army, Airforce and navy chiefs at some point of another acted as agents for foreign companies than leaders leading armed forces of india.
    If power is the issue, why LCA with T/W of 0.86 has been behind in induction that junk JF-17 with T/W of 0.82?
    does this means that pokis support pak made ( in what ever propotion) that what we do to indian made things? why we lagged so behind porkis in fighter induction?...porkis have less money, junk brains etc..but they can take any military equipment and induct them far faster than we. They started after us in AWAC induction, but we have lagged behind them in numbers..they produce their own Anti-Aitr MANPADs, own Anti-tank missiles..import large number of Trainer aircrafts.

    At least our enemy is clear in its mind that India is its enemy and how to deal with india, they are to stay with with that path by means of terrorism which is cheap for them and what are our plans?

    Why we are so slow.
    take example for Spider missiles, DEAL MADE IN 2008 and induction in 2017.
    That F*CI< 9 years to finally start induction.
    INSAS rifle, Helmets, Sights, Body armor etc..name a few.
