Vikrant with foldable winged F-15s? Artist or an idiot?
By INS Vikranth, do u mean the ADS?? I dont think so….How come there is such a good graphic image done and why is the deck filled with F-15Es..
and the aircraft taking off is the F18 super hornet………!!!
What does this mean? thats not definately MiG 29
What are F-15s doing on INS Vikrant
Why does the artist think that the Vikrant would host (navalised???) F-15 Eagles? I thought we had settled on a complement of Mig-29Ks and N-Tejas.
She is a beauty!
looks more like superimposition of a model pic on an ocean pic in photoshop..Can count 14 A/C.. whats the projected capacity? where is the self defence/ other equipment..
so it mig 29 for Vikrant.. Since its anyway an artist’s impression, I wish he had gone ahead with NLCA..
Wow! 14 Mig-29Ks on board. How many aircrafts can it carry aboard? Hope to see some NLCAs as well.
wish I were on the deck!
I have a model of an F22 on my desk, that doesn’t mean it will fly…
Wow! This is a great effort! One nitpick, though – the aeroplane taking off is an F-15, not a MiG-29K
LOL….why are f-15s flying off of it? 😀
who is the artist,shiv?
the ship looks like a Baku class…the aircraft are similar to F-15 in appearance (?) and the island looks like the one commonly found on Fincantieri designed carriers….so, is this the final design…overall, nice way to startup.
I love the pic except for 1 thing. somebody needs to take the artist aside and tell him that those aircraft he’s shown on the flight deck are F-15s which are not drawn to scale (and are not carrier capable in any case).
i think INS VIKRANT has crazy number of F-15s on board……….it will be the first carrier……infact IN will be the first navy to use F-15’S……
is that israeli insignia on those F-15’S?????????
looks like F-15 to me.
LOL!Why are there F-15s on the INS Vikrant?
Why are there F15’s on her… ?
Is this the IAC-1 ?
looks like F-15 taking off from the deck
knew everyone was gonna pounce on that one 🙂
India signed an order for 200 naval variant of F-15s to operate on 5 IACs for 40 billy $$
Nice blog, I like it.Regards,RogerDEFENSE-TECHNOLOGY NEWShttp://defense-technologynews.blogspot.com/
I think the artist has ski-jump incorrectly drawn, along with the bow. As it stands now it is as if the ADS superstructure has been grafted onto a Kiev hull.
Check against the model from AI09
Hi Shiv, well done for putting up these cgi. Could oyu please load the high rez versions please.
I don’t know why everyone say that it is F 15. For godsake, they are Mig29. Both look alike.
Can’t see the hi-rez version the 2nd pic, Shiv. Please load it.
i wish they could paint it this color
anon @ 12:51pmno,dude…F-15 and the MiG-29k never look alike.
now,which is that chopper in the 2nd pic? looks like the naval NH-90 to me
anon @ 4:51amyou are correct….the ski-lift of IAC will look similar to the arrangement that we have on the INS Viraat now,with the addition of cross-runway for landing and extraction.
looks like desi Gorshkov
Hey guys the ACs on the deck r indeed MiG29Ks which do look a bit similar to F-15s coz of the dual stabilizers & are foldable winged too.read this:http://en.rian.ru/analysis/20070124/59629022.html
smarterone @ 12:51amno, they don’t look like MiG 29….check the position of the jet intakes, u fool….and tell me, which of the F-15s have foldable wings…LMFAO!and last but not the least, try commenting using ur blogger ID….most of us know who u are.
Why is the commentbox so fucked up in firefox browser. I cannot see anything properly and it’s so hard to comment. And is this how India plans to make it’s AC by ripping off American designs and planes. Indian military
looks like a “copy paste” work to me rather than a Artistic impression
My friends b logical,its mig29k & dosn't even look like f-15s more over if u have some douts then have a look at some f-15.i also heard some 1 calling it a iternational carrier.wat f***,help was just sorted for propulsion and air stips layout.d desing is indi,propulsion is indi & 98 % const is indian.i also wana say that consultancy of private & foreign firms is almost unavoidable & is a common practise around d world.WE r making progress& it has to b step by step.
