Indian Navy Aircraft Carrier INS Vikramaditya to be Upgraded with Defensive Weapon Systems

According to local media, the Indian Navy aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya (R 33) will soon enter its first scheduled maintenance. As part of this scheduled maintenance, several new weapon systems will be fitted on board the aircraft carrier. Work is to be carried out at the Naval Ship Repair Yard in the new naval base at Karwar, where is based INS Vikramaditya.

The new systems to be installed include Israeli made (Rafael) Barak 1 surface-to-air missile systems (in Vertical Launch Systems) and four 30mm six-barrel AK-630 Close In Weapon System guns. The systems will be taken off decommissioned Project 16 Godavari class Frigates.

Good.

About time. They took a calculated risk commissioning and deploying her without any defensive weaponry like this.

But Barak VLS and four AK-630s will be good for the Vikramaditya.

Now this is the surface component of a modern US Navy Carrier Strike Group.

On May 2nd, 2015, U.S. Navy ships underway as part the John C. Stennis, CVN-74, Carrier Strike Group. These exercises provide an opportunity for crews to focus on teamwork, communication, and hone skills sailors need when executing the nation's maritime strategy.

What you see here are the John Stennis, a Ticonderoga AEGIS cruiser, four Burke AEGIS destroyers (Two Flight IIAs with the hangers, and two Flight I or IIs without the hanger), and a Freedom Class LCS...I am sure to help perform ASW duties.

...you have to believe that the Australians are watching.





Nice!

I have to say that that Spanish design (for their Juan Carlos) is getting pretty good play.

Spain, Australia, and now Turkey.
