    NSR says – Truly wonderful pictures and keep it up with your good work.
    I am astounded to learn that it does not have any air/missile defense system at all. How do we expect to use this ship when the LR-SAM air/missile defense is not going to be ready for another 3 or more years? What happened to the $3 billions we paid to Israel for LR-SAM and MR-SAM. Some article said that it is unfair to expect Israel to transfer technology – why and what about taking $3 billions? They are already installing LR-SAM like missile in their ships by end of 2013. An article says they will install a rapid fire gun system in Vikramaditya and it is laughable. What kind of planning is that? A few Exocet like anti-ship missiles can make it go down…Extremely dangerous to send it on missions without air/missile defense. The person responsible for the LR-SAM and MR-SAM must be punished severely for signing a faulty contract. I think they must procure a Russian system immediately and install it. Do not wait for the Israeli system as it may never come and we will be laughing stock of the world. Please ask the commanders some tough questions about the air/missile defenses.

    We would love to see all the MIG 29 decked up on INS Vikramaditya and floating. It would be awesome and formidable.
