    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.

    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.

    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

    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……

    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

    I don’t know why everyone say that it is F 15. For godsake, they are Mig29. Both look alike.

    you 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
