The FS Chevalier Paul has a somewhat cleaner profile which probably helps with stealth? Or does the clutter on the Kolkata help dissipate radar waves?
Neah the cleaner lines of the French Ship do have the function of reducing RCS. It's a further development of Angled Faceted hull form which their Lafayette class patrol Frigate pioneered. The reason why Kolkata does'nt have much cleaner lines are because it is still borrows heavily from the older P-15 design. A P-18 might rectify that as it will be very much a clean slate design, taking into account all lessons learnt from the design, construction and operation of the P-15, 15A, 15B classes.

Has to do with armament too. So as long we keep using RBUs they will keep cluttering the deck. But they are very useful in indian Ocean.

In my opinion, we need more (Anti Submarine Warfare) ASW assets, just 9-10 P-8Is, 24 MH 60 helicopters won't be enough in my opinion.

Guys,like we bought MH 60 Romeo helicopter for Anti Submarine Warfare Role ,should we buy AW159 helicopters too?Even They are pretty good anti Submarine Warfare helicopters in my opinion(Just a personal opinion, so don't bash me about it kindly)

When china was the size of Indian economy back in 2007 they had zero aircraft carriers.

We have two in water.

I wonder how many aircraft carriers we will have when we reach the size of chinese economy today.
Don't worry Bhai, once we get coalition govt in place. We will take reverse gear to 1950s. After all our dynast leaders need to stash funds in Swiss banks😜😜 coupled with re-education camps waiting for sanghis🐷🐷
