MiG-29K getting readied to take-off from INS Vikramaditya. Location unknown.
Makes sense, Navy doesn't need AMCA for carrier. it needs a good twin engine aircraft.
N-AMCA is not required for Navy, because they are used to extra hardpoints now. and anti ship missiles won't fit in internal bay anyways.. AMCA is stealthy only when external hard points are not used.I think it would've been better to straight away got towards N-AMCA, while letting N-LCA MK2 fill in the gaps. Why are we wasting time with a 4rth gen aircraft?

That does make sense, but I'm not sure if they're going to top the Mig-29KBecause fifth gen fighter will be very costly to operate and requires huge maintaince and please add sea environment also
Navy have dornier too as well as il-38.Question about Indian Navy Tu-142 pilots:
Hello friends, I am an aviation history enthusiast and I am doing an extended research about military advanced multi engine pilot trainers.
Now my question... Were the new young pilots for the Tu-142 selected from advanced multi engine training stream in the Air Force Dorniers?
Thank you very much in advance.
Thank you Sir.Navy have dornier too as well as il-38.
TU-142 is retired. Replaced by P-8I.new Tu-142 pilots (copilots) selected.
Tu-142m was top of the line before p-8i, so induction to it must have been through il-38 and dornier too, as well as budy training (you know seniors instilling in you) also foreign cooperation with Russians too was included,that's my take for more there are many retiree of India navy ROAMING ON TWITTER you can post to them for more Information and also here was a navy guy with avatar name darshan he can be more helpful.Thank you Sir.
I thought that future Navy Pilots were sent for ab-initio flying training to Air Force Academy and were streamed to fighter pilots, multi engine pilots or rotary wings pilots.
The question is from where of these three pipelines were the new Tu-142 pilots (copilots) selected.
