    I'm saddened by this news! GOI and ministry of defense should do something regarding converting Vikrant into a museum! I'm sure the 100-500 Cr figure for this is highly inflated!

    Their is actually nothing much to talk about, Its a tragedy ..

    I hope same fate does not happen with Virrat, Rather push it for another 10 years as Helicopter carrier ..

    When I was in Mumbai, I went to see the Aircraft Carrier. It was a museum then. Unfortunately, it was open only for certain months, and not when I went.

    I don't think they did enough to preserve it as a museum. Poor planning I say.

    Guys this thread should be kept to only posting pictures & info of the ship while it was in service
    @Kunalbiswas @pmaitra please take care. No need for unnecessary discussion
