    The IN seems to be on a roll. Kamorta, Kolkata...

    The IN is increasing its firepower and lethality by leaps and bounds, even as the other two services are stuck in a quagmire about modernization.

    IA for sure is, I'd say other than on the fighter front (primarily the LCA and Rafale fronts) the IAF is on a pretty good run in terms of modernisation across the board.

    If you are referring to the discolored masts, they haven't been polished yet, but it does happen before ship is handed
    over to Navy.

    If you're referring to the uneven surface on the sides, it is done to reduce radar & acoustic signature.

    I'm not sure it will be this rigid, and why would the IN have two CBGs with a significant disparity in capabilities (IAC-1 > Viky, P-15A > P-15, P-17 > Talwar, P-28 > P-25A, Scorpene > Killo)?
