Cool..
Though, what is that big-ass ship in the background in the 2nd pic? Never seen a non-AC Naval ship that was that size…

The second picture gives you a feel of how big this beast really is.Goose Bumps…..!Jalebis…Mithais….!

The last pic….reminds me of a KASHIN class lighting up.The Japs actually sent fire fighting vessels from their coast guard when they saw INS RAJPUT approaching Tokyo with so much smoke.

Oh she is a beauty!!!! Worth the wait!

Hope the belching smoke is just her boilers being fired up for the first time.

Some of the best pics of Vikky out there. Well done Shiv Aroor! The ship is a looker. Good job by re-fitters. Flight deck is narrow but still useful and practical.

the steam engine could have been replaced by LM2500 engines of General Electric like that of IAC-1.

As anon@1:54 pointed out, it is a Kirov class battle cruiser. To be particular, it is Admiral Nakhimov which is also undergoing refit there. Correct me if I am wrong Shiv.

This was something that I was waiting for a long time coming. Simply awesome! Can't wait till our carrier wing,the Mig-29 K's are landing and taking off this beauty.

God bless India!
