4 engines, shafts, propeller installation works already completed. Super structure mating with the deck by welding process is going on. Looks like completed almost. Rest of the work could be to install electronics equipments, weapon systems etc which could take another year. We could expect Vikrant to our by 2020 with 1 year additional delay if happen

I too expected and desired for the same,but recenTh US experts opinion on vibrant is a negative mark.
US Experts ! A random post on Whastington Post and you take it above Naval Design Department?

The so called " EXPERTS " said it lacks short range missiles ? If this is a criteria , QE Class too is Junk ?

In contrary INS VIKRANT is to sport 8x8 cell VLS BARAK 8/ER, 4xAK630 M and 4x OTO MELARA 76MM.

This is probably the second most heavy armed Aircraft Carrier after Russian Aviation Cruiser.
