    The Devil is in little detail!! Respectable load being the catch phrase…AAM no doubt is no big deal, but what anti-ship missile and what were the no. of AShM were Sewer Whore carrying in “Simulation” is the big question.

    Shiv: awesome stuff! You seem to have a knack of being where all the interesting stories are! More info/stories on the IDS please!

    Anon does raise a valid point: does the launch weight satisfy IAF mission parameters? That said, the flexibility offered by this possibility is nothing to be sneezed at!

    Regarding the Navy – Maybe they (speculators) are afraid that the Navalised LCA will not be ready in time? Hard to say, given how far off the IAC is to actually operating. Or it could be to scare the Russians a bit about the aircraft supplied with the Gorshkov (unlikely, though).

    The question now becomes, what can the Mig-29K fly off the Vik and IAC with versus what the SH can do?

    If there aren’t many differences in the ordinance load and endurance, then the situation becomes interesting.

    I don’t think the Super Bugs can operate off the Viraat. The ship doesn’t have arrestor wires. I don’t think it has a jet blast deflector either.

    Lol – I like the sound of “super bug”! Don’t know why it is not advertised as such more often!
