Well it was never meant to be on the P-15A but will be on the P-15B not to mention IAC-1 and P-17A


Someone needs to get in tough with this guy (he's a Brit AFAIK). There's NO WAY the IN would allow these pics online.

I do not think Indian navy has any choice in this matter till our Karwar base is fully operational. anyone with a fishing boat can snap pics of IN ships docked at Mumbai base.

Even this fellow took photos from cruise ship...

Yes; thats it. I've explained a little earlier how it can happen. I have pictures too (from a while ago) from both sides of the wall, thats part of it just as I have pictures of the Atlantic Fleet at Norfolk (the Trenton was also berthed there prior transfer) but its not much use really apart from enthusiasts like the guy "Mike" who posted them.

The fleet needs to move to Karwar ASAP; not to avoid getting photographed (lol) but because Bombay Harbor Approaches are really getting crowded now and some-what chaotic inspite of the VTIS.

Highlighting the navy’s commitment to indigenous defence production, the navy chief pointed out that all 45 ships and submarines being constructed for the navy are being built in Indian shipyards.

Describing indigenization efforts, Admiral Joshi said that indigenization was 100 per cent in the “float category” of construction (i.e. warship hulls).


In the “move category” (engine, transmission, generators, air conditioning), indigenization was “close to 50 per cent”.


However, in the “fight category” (weapons, sensors, radars, sonars) the navy has “a long way to go.”


Pointing out that this indigenization has been achieved in 60-70 years, starting from virtually a zero industrial base, the navy chief said “we have much to be proud about.”


He said, “We are in dialogue with private industry, DRDO… a lot of money has to be invested in R&D for developing world class systems at competitive prices.”

Indian Navy to take part in US
wargame in Hawaii

NEW DELHI: Reflecting their close
defence ties, the Indian Navy for the
first time will take part in one of the
world's biggest naval wargames hosted
by the US in Hawaii in June next year.
More than 20 countries, including China
and Japan, are expected to take part in
the international maritime war exercise
Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC).
The Navy will be sending its warships
for the multlateral exercise hosted by
the US Pacific Command in which it has
so far been only an observer, sources
said here.
RIMPAC 2014 is expected to see the
participation of all types of naval
vessels and aircraft, including surface
warships, submarines, surveillance
platoforms and reconnaissance planes.
Navy sources said no final decision has
so far been taken by the government
about the ships and aircraft to be sent
for the wargames.
India and the US have been enhancing
defence ties in the last decade and the
navies of the two countries have held
the Malabar and Salvex series of
exercises.
In the Malabar series wargames, Indian
and American warships have held drills
in either the Bay of Bengal or the
Arabian Sea.
The two sides had involved the Japanese
maritime forces in the wargames in
2007 but India decided against having
multilateral exercises after China raised
questions over the intent behind such
moves.

It does have a certain quantum of operable capabilities suited for amphibious assault but it is woefully outdated, the lack of a well deck means that it cannot deploy the landing crafts in more turbulent sea states while a well deck can operate even in sea state-5 and allows for heavier landing platforms such as LCACs to be used for deploying troops and heavy vehicles from beyond the horizon.

She lacks a Well-Deck but has a Flight-Deck!
Thus the ideal platform for VERT deployment and VERTREP. That is much speedier in some kind of Ops. Add the ability to provide organic Air-Cover to the Ops. Do not write off the Virat as a suitable Ops platform in all respects. If the Propulsion plant; which is her weak-link now since it can't be run at prolonged-sustained full-power, can be nursed along----then she is still kosher for the job.
Consider this: Viraat in conjunction with Jalashwa and the Magar class. All Sea-Launched assets distributed between the Magars and Jalashwa while Air-Launching and Air-Cover/Support emanating from Viraat.

At the very basic level; Viraat has a strong training role with humongous capacity. With two Carriers, Viraat can even be reverted to 1st Trg. Sqdn.
