    Anyone knows how they fared against rafales-M during the recent exercice varuda btw the two carriers ?

    In defence I would expect the MiGs to be every bit as good as the Rafale, but in strike roles I would expect the Rafales are more mature systems.

    The purpose of the MiGs and Sus on Soviet and Russian carriers has traditionally been air defence, which is why they picked the Su-33 air to air fighter over the fully multi role 1980s MiG-33.

    These days however they will be bringing out brand new AAMs and strike weapons in a variety of weight ranges that could be used by aircraft.

    Off topic racist stuff moved to talking bollocks section... this section for discussion about the Indian MiG-29KR

    I was going to click on like, because it is good for his family that his body was found, but could not bring myself to click on like for such a post...

    But thanks for the follow up... so often in situations like this we never get follow up stories.

    It was not that long ago there was a US marine accident where one of their amphibious vehicles sank and they reported some dead but also quite a few missing... it is pretty like those missing were dead because there is not much chance of survival when you amphibious vehicle sinks in deep water, but for the people involved it is important to know.

    RIP for someone serving their country...

    Ground test complex for practicing takeoff and landing of carrier-based aircraft (NITKA) of the Indian Navy

    New interesting photos of the Indian Navy's ground test complex for taking off and landing of carrier-based aircraft (NITKA), located in the state of Goa. In 2014, Russia supplied India with a set of equipment for a complex in Goa, which trains pilots of MiG-29K / KUB carrier-based fighters of the Vikramaditya aircraft carrier.

    Why don't they put a water pool behind if it doesn't take off it will blow up and kill the pilot ?

    Same reason most armies don't train with live ammo only so if you make a mistake you get shot and die...
