This explains why we almost never see satellite photos of the Vikramaditya at sea unlike the two Chinese aircraft carriers which are constantly at sea.


we spent $1b on refurbishing Vikky, another $1b on Mig29K air wing, 1 honeytrap scandal, what did our tax payer money get? a 'training carrier' that is barely able to sail 2 weeks in last 2 yrs, a 29K unable to take sustained shocks of carrier landings and zero accountability.

As long as it gets you on the list of active aircraft carriers on wikipedia, it counts.

Lol. So Indians can brag on the internet? They always talk about their experience in carrier operations but it is almost certain that they have done far less conventional launches and traps with their one STOBAR carrier than the two Chinese ones. Their previous experience before the Vikramaditya was mainly with the Harrier. Even Thailand had experience with the Harrier. It is not the same as a STOBAR or CATOBAR used on fleet carriers.

You cannot find satellite pictures of the Indian carrier at sea unlike the Chinese carriers which are recorded constantly at sea.

the indian carrier is total rubbish, Chinese and Pak have zero to worry about, plus, they're flying the samosa.. what's more.. pajeet pilots will be doing duty on those samosas off a wreck of a ship.

A random tweet saying India bad makes whole PDF go bonkers :lol:
no sir, india is a superpower. it should have attacked china to show its might, after galwan. and it should have struck hard at pakistan after 27th feb, using the very same carrier that is under discussion right now. that would have shown the pakistanis what's what.

There were two fires on their Vikramaditya carrier already and there are little to no satellite pictures of the thing being at sea.

This contradicts the Indian bragging about having carrier "experience." lol

its stealth. invisible to satellites. its the fault of chinese tech that repeatedly fails to pick up any sign of the indian carrier.

The satellite pictures of Chinese carriers come from Western companies mainly but they do not pick up any from the Indian carrier.

So every tech fails to pick up the Indian carrier. Super stealth. Or they are simply not interesting being stuck at port all the time. lol

Very well said. I completely agree.

We need to save our assets for the time of war. We cannot afford to operate them during peace time and lose them in the process.
