    Seems like this IAC is design with Russian help. Which combat aircraft will be fielded on this ac? Mig29, rafale or f18. Please shed some light.

    The land which was in East Pakistan for 3 days
    Is this high level of readiness mean for example , our Destroyer will commissioned with 32 Anti-ship missile instead of 16 or Frigate with 16 ASM instead of 8 ?

    IN already released a RFI for 57 Multi Role Carrier Borne Fighter.
    Few main requirements for MRCBF are:
    1. Should be Twin Engine platform.
    2. Should be compatible with STOBAR & CATOBAR

    IN asked all contenders to show-off their capabilities

    According to me, RAFALE-M & F/A-18 will be able to demonstrate both STOBAR & CATOBAR but will have to compensate the weapon load.

    Nope, it is developed by consultation from Fincantieri and is based on its CAVOUR Class aircraft carriers...........

    It still looks another 2 years away from getting into blue waters . Hope we don't loose the Mig29s by then in accidents and poor maintenance . . The day we commission this shop or even launch it for trails we should all celebrate :daru:

    This along with ATV are the coming of age of Indian naval ship building capabilities .


    Hey bhagwan please get this ship inducted faster :hail:

    Every time i look at IAC-1 island, It reminds me of IJN Carriers specially Hiyo and Shinano, The exhausts on the island are tiled a little so the exhaust will not be over flight deck. Much like today`s IAC-1, Its impressive to see uniqueness of our carrier design which is not common on the globe ..

    ====================
    ====================

    Its a superior design to what Russian have to offer us, This is tailor design for us ..

    Let it be its propulsion which consist of 4 gas turbine engines ( Licensed produce already ), Sensors consist of AESA, Bigger hanger and larger lifts and also maintenance friendly design ..

    This carrier was design by our people with consultation from other foreign countries ..

    It has to be Mig 29 because the INS Vikrant is designed around Mig 29, all its hangars, equipment are for the use of Mig 29.
    No Rafale-M or f 18 will be procured for INS Vikrant, the RFI is for the future aircraft carrier and it is just an RFI whose only use is information gathering.

    Its INS Vikramaditya the ex-Russian carrier whose design is specifically for MIGs as their are no other options for it, INS Vikrant on other hand has no such limitation and its an Indian design and was never built to use for specific air-frame in mind ..

    Vikrant is designed around the Cavour, I guarantee you there is no MiG-29 considered. Russian fighters will remain on Russian designed carriers. Apparently they are so damaged after landing they can't take off again without overhaul.

    whichever it may be I am happy to see that our nation has built its first air craft carriers, may be it is assembled, but they have built one working and fine model for the military need, may be the lessons learned from the IAC 1 will enhance the time cuttings for the IAC 2. I hope that this is just as the arihant, and the vishal will make the class aircrafts like the aridhaman. whichis speculated already under sea trials.

    As concerned about the aircrafts for the carrier, the Navy may go for the migs as stop gap if the procurement drags or they can wait till the procurements gets over, only with choppers onboard.
    Though this could impact the training and experience of the crew, still the other aircrafts that if navy decided, the vikrant will be in anti submarine role, carrying the anti submarine helicopters.
    The offer of the Cochin Shipyard of building the followon carrier in just five years Can also be considered by the navy, as it adds the stop gap between the vishal and the vikrant, and also fulfils the naval vision of 3 active carriers at any given time, with one under maintenance.

    India's indigenous Aircraft Carrier INS VIKRANT to be fully operational by 2019
    Thursday, October 12, 2017 By: Zee News India Source Link: CLICK HERE
    [​IMG]

    Indian Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba on Thursday reviewed the construction of the country's first indigenous aircraft carrier - Vikrant, at the Cochin Shipyard. The Navy expects the 40,000-tonne aircraft carrier to be fully operational by 2019.

    Admiral Lanba took stock of the various construction activities related to Vikrant - named after India's first aircraft carrier that was acquired from the UK in 1961. "At the shipyard, the CNS (chief of Naval staff) accompanied by the FOC-in-C (South) and other senior officials of the Navy took a walk around of the ship to get a first hand appreciation of the progress of work onboard," a Defence release stated.

    The ship, which is designed to survive attack by nuclear, biological or chemical weapons, puts India in the elite group of nations like the US, Russia, the UK and France that are capable of designing and constructing aircraft carriers. Once complete, it would be able to accommodate 12 MiG-29Ks, eight Tejas Light Combat Aircrafts and 10 helicopters, and is expected to have a range of 7,500 nautical miles at 18 knots speed.

    At an allocated cost of Rs 20,000 crore, its construction - approved first in 2003 - has, however, suffered numerous delays and has taken a toll on Navy resources.

    In a report, Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) had previously highlighted that construction activities are likely to be finished only by 2023. "It is evident from the PERT chart (September 2014) of Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) that while the delivery of the carrier with completion of all activities is likely to be achieved only by 2023," read the report.

    In sharp contrast, China launched its own indigenous aircraft carrier in April of this year and reports suggest it can become operational by 2020. At 70,000 tonnes, the Type 001A - named Shandong - will help the country edge past India for the first time in number of aircraft carriers each has. India currently has the solitary INS Vikramaditya after it decommissioned INS Viraat earlier in the year.

    According to several defence experts, the Indian Navy is also lacking in the number of submarines it has. With 11 of its 13 submarines more than 25 years old, Indian Navy has a big problem at hand - especially in the backdrop of reports that China is looking at expanding its presence in the Indian Ocean. Chinese Navy currently has more than 70 submarines.
