Her back has some issues I can't quite figure out...Show your sexy back.
You people may know, that the two flight decks of an aircraft carrier are angled in such a manner that you can do simultaneously trapping & shooting of jets. Which would require having a clean touch-n-go path for the jets in case they do not "catch the wire" while landing (common).
Now in Vikramaditya it is just as it should be, with the shooting position of the jets on both sides of the landing deck... But on Vikrant, the starting positions of both tend to sit right in the path the landing jets. I don't get it, seems waaaaaay to obvious to be a design oversight.
I mean why not even have straight deck like the Viraat if you won't be able to carry out simultaneous landing-launching operation?.. That'll atleast give you a longer runway.
