india bought this ship for 946 million and this is pretty cheap for the ship being built inside out with all new systems(which a new built aircraft carrier will employ)

and for delay let me remind u one thing a scorpene submarine being built takes 6-7 years to operationalize

a p17 frigate taking same 7 years to operationalize and how long p15a will take??????????????

for mig29k there are no fully trained pilots as u all know that naval pilots still in training and will take 8-10 months more

Sevmash have not got payments from the Indian party for two years and that did not allow expanding works on the ship in full. After receiving additional funds the enterprise shall be able to accelerate the work———————————-so then why the hell our admiral was shouting for price hike at 946 million for this ship is pretty cheap and india still has to pay 246 million more to cover up and make it to 946 million and as for delay of this ship scorpene sub indction has been delayed for 2 years and total time since scorpene bought to induction now… Read more »

So does the Indian Navy finally get what it paid for?

Carrier, MiG-29K Fulcrums, trained pilots, armaments, spares and aviation fuel = 946 mil

The Mig-29k came as a separate deal. The deal was $950mill + $550 mill. 550 mill for Mig-29k.

The Russians jacked up the price to $2.2 bill from the earlier $964mill.

Still cheap.

even if it becomes 2.2 billion it will still be cheaper than what we have to pay for new ship

and india not going to pay what russia ask most probable pice for gorshkov will be increased by 300-500 million and that will cost between 1.3 to 1.5 billion

now the carrier being built at CSL is projected to have cost between 4-5 billion and what is surity it will come on time that is 2016

a 24000 tons san antonio class ship cost over 2 billion US bucks

gorshkov will still be cheaper at 2.2 billion even if india has to pay this much which is highly unlikely
