Doubt it's true, but it's a waste of money for the kind of capabilities added. It would be more helpful if it's converted to CATOBAR, like a conventional CdG.

Not up to both. Depends on what IN needs.

After 5 years , there will be NO MIG 29 K left , All will crash

TEDBF will be ready after 10 years

So what will we do , use Aircraft carriers as LHD or Large Missile Carriers -- Brahmos and Nirbhay or K series

There were reports during the air show about the IN planning to order more Mig-29s. We obviously need 4 operational squadrons for 2 carriers.

LHDs are needed to support our marine forces with helicopters.

Dont go with manorama, this newspaper used to spread imaginations a lot. If you wants to know about this go and see what they have wrote during offshore drilling as a part of oil exploration in kerala-konkan offshore.

Nothing conclusive. They haven’t even completed the enquiry and here you have passed the judgements and predicted the future.

Nope not flat. In fact it is quite similar to the Kolkata class

I know the site is reserved, I am wondering if they fitted the radar yet. There were some rumours of the MF-STAR integration being delayed due to supply issues due to COVID.

Protective cover over a radar is usually called a radome.


That doesn't look like a radome at all. Radomes are usually made of ceramic or composite materials having very low dielectric constant. This is to reduce interference & energy losses.

The photo shows a makeshift cover of sheet metal/alloy. Metal/alloy sheets are horrible choice of material for making radomes. Metals get electrically charged when subjected to powerful EM waves. These charges will ten interfere with radar signals creating a very cluttered radar picture.

@Gautam
You were right. No MF-STAR

India's indigenous aircraft carrier Vikrant is back from its initial sea-trials which ended successfully

New Delhi:
Indigenous Aircraft Carrier Vikrant, the largest and most complex warship India has ever designed and built, successfully accomplished its first sea voyage just days ago.

NDTV got access to the aircraft carrier after it was back from its 5-day sea voyage.

Built at a cost of around ₹ 23,000 crore, Vikrant set sail last Wednesday for the crucial sea trials ahead of its planned induction into the Indian Navy by August next year.

The delivery of Vikrant is being targeted to coincide with celebrations to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India's independence.

Vikrant is 262 metres long, 62 metres wide and it has a height of 59 metres. Its construction began in 2009.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh called the Vikrant's first sea trials a "true testimony to our unwavering commitment to 'Atmanirbhar Bharat
