    They didn't say anything interesting. They claim that it is not and old and rebuild carrier, but that it is so rebuild it is practically new.
    Now the work will continue almost only inside the carrier, and that it will go on sea trails in 2011.

    if there are any ship building experts, can you please explain to me why that Island structure cant be moved to the extreme side, like the mast. It will enable launch of two aircrafts in quick succession as well as simulatneously landing an aircraft. improving the operational tempo, anyways we are paying the same as a new carrier.


    PS: Regarding the cost's being floated on the internet, I dont think they are true. I think there is no Russians will as for 2.8 billion for that carrier(exculding the aircrafts). It makes no economical sense. Heck, Russians could built as a brand new carrier for that amount. There is a lot of media war games being played here. just my thoughts

    Not impresive? Hm whats about so impressive with mi-24? Nevertheless, 28 have better performance, today it's basicly same 24, but without "belly" But we soon will see new rockets for 28, and maybe new avionics.

    Because it's not working. The one on Admiral Kuznetzov is out of operation either. The producer was a design bureau in Ukraine and after split-up of SU nobody cared to bring the radar to operation. Mars-Passat project is dead.

    why cant that Island structure and center lift be moved to the side.
    it will create better operational tempo and fighter carrying capacity?

    Adux,
    can u explain why Vik is a waste of money? I dont see how better it is with the larger local built carrier. The slightly larger carrier at most project 1 or 2 more fighter to the sky since it is also a skijump design.

    I'm a bit tired of these useless "Cavour" comparisons. It is made to operate EIGHT vertical take off jets. The Keypublishing boys hate of the Gorshkov doesn't change that fact.

    It's sustained speed is also lower, something to consider with a carrier.

    Russian,

    comparisions is not with cavour(27,000 tons) but IAC-1(cavour xxl, 37,500 tons)

    Vikaramadity(Viki) was always a compromise, she in her earlier form was never meant to be a clean carrier, therefore flaws on her side for the conventional meaning of carrier is all but expected. Do understand, she unlike before doesnt have any more missiles in her belly nor is she clean carrier to put out excellent sortie rates. When sevmash(we are friends arent we, so lets blame the yard) qoutes a price to equal that of a freshly constructed clean carrier for viki, people will get offended.
