Night flight operations on CV16, video on Weibo:
Same video on youtube. The afterburners at night really demonstrate how much punishment those blast deflectors take at take-off; and how they facilitate higher sortie rates:
First time two carriers in the same picture
Liaoning has been moved into dry dock at Dialan Shipyard:
That is the right place for it. it is not made for war.
This is also the right regular daily routes, between shipyard and water...
Ofcourse, because it is under construction and not operational.
Because the CVN 16 & 17 are under regular maintenance and already operational.
What is a CVN 16 & 17? China doesn't have a nuke carriers, only the US and France.
You have 1 carrier for a test right one broke down. Thus you have 0 active.
another pathetic stupid whine from the preindustrial nation...LOL...do the idiots know nothing about the moden shipbuilding Procedure? that's a normal docking and adjustment after the Port trail and first Sea trail (propulsion system) to amend any design/manufacture flaws found.
and the DL shipyard is right ahead of the planned schedule... the CV-17 was contracted to the hand-over in 2019, but the shipyard is aiming new key time nod - by end of 2018 which is not compulsory. It might be happen with great effort.
that's where indian domestic AC should be, in the shipyard under infinite construction.
At least when it is completed INS Vikrant will be a potent carrier with latest warfare wares like AESA Radar, EW suite, capable Fighters (RAFALES or F-18s), Anti Air (BARAK 8ER) & Anti Ship (BRAHMOS) Missiles, UNLIKE these Chinese IMPOTENT Dicks which fail to deliver SATISFACTION and are always in Docks for repairs or Drifting in some ocean without power.............
Till then INS Vikramaditya too is MUCH BETTER than Chinese LAME DICKS at least it is FULLY ERECT (fully operational) and during war exercise with US carriers it proved its mettle.......
INS Vikramaditya shows its mettle, US Commander says it was “chilling to see MiGs approaching”
>Be wanting A/C to match ego with US.
>Have 1 refurbished A/C and 1 U/C with 1 under planning/design.
>Rushing sub standard U/C A/C to trials.
>A/C spazzes out in few days.
>A/C back in dry dock with repair.
>A/C chief fired and jailed.
>But muh Indian A/C is delayed to 2020.
>Made in China = Made for Display Only.
Correction Russia active user of su33 now shifting to mig29k when su33 meets its airframe life time , by the way mig29k better carrier fighter than su33 , I can vomit all techd details if u want but am not her for dick measuring contest also yes IAC 2 actually not a aircraft Carrier more of heli Carrier bust as Japan converted their heli Carrier to f35 carrier it still more capable,..
Also those Indian fan boys chest thumbing on IN plz try to realize the speed and determination of Chinese navy even they clone or not they have the capability and India alone can't challenge China as well
Since the MiG-29 takes up far less space than an Su-33 you can compare them as they carry similar numbers. The max payload of an Su-33 with half fuel is 2 tonnes. The MiG-29K can carry the same thanks to its lighter weight and improved engines. Honestly, both ships are handicapped in the same way without catapults and nuclear propulsion but to each other they are comparable.
Whatever it is The under construction Vikrant is better than Chinese ACs . Atleast we r trying our own design , designing such complicated vessels are really a challenge, China bought the design from Ukraine and making copies of it , changing 100m length to 120m is not actually designing . There is any significant advantage in these Chinese ACs both of them r using sky jumps , the 3rd AC may use steam catapult , these Chinese claims they developed EMALS but recently SCMP reported there 3rd AC will use steam catapult . They r trying to develop a Nuke reactor for ,3rd AC they r finding it difficult to build and recently asked Russians to help . Meanwhile Vikrant is delaying mainly because of delay from other things . It would have better defence systems and EW suites than the so called big Chinese ducklings .
Another report suggest that Chinese are not impressed with J15 it is faulty and they r going to develop another Naval fighter . Aircraft carriers without aircrafts China is really funny .
who knows? you guys are supposed to induct that ships years ago, but now no one is sure how many more years it is gonna take.
if you can't even stick to the schedule, no one believes it's gonna be as potent as you claim it to be.
