Land aircraft are not suitable for naval ops....naval ac needs stronger landing gear and overall structure,more corrosion resistance,greater turn around time just to name a few.I have a noob question. If Mig29Ks are giving so much trouble, why not modify few Sukhoi Su30MKIs(arrange for foldable wings having 7-8 mtr wingspan) and use them instead till a decent number of TEDBF gets inducted?
Russians adopted land bases a/c for carrier ops so now we have jets like su33 and 29k which arnt good.
A naval capability must be kept in mind since the design phase else result will be subpar
