Thanks for the info. I was wondering if the ship was coming from east side since it was mentioned it will be reaching at Kochin first, guess it may be due to some pending sea based trials or training. Read it will be eventually based in Karwar.

I was surprised to read today that the INS Vikramaditya does not have any air defense systems on board currently. The "controversial" Barak 1 will be fitted once the carrier reaches India. What that also means is that the IN has the confidence in our dockyards to fit them once the ship docks in India. Our dockyards do have experience in this with the work they have done on the Delhi class destroyers.

Apparently, the Russian Mig 29s, Su 33s and a few other aircrafts could not detect the INS Vik during the test phase with the Vik detecting them even when they were about 350-400 kms out

An escort flotilla is also accompanying the Vik on her journey. Apparently, this has a supply ship, a Talwar class frigate and an underwater asset as well. Hope it's the INS Chakra

I think it is expected that the Israeli Barak missiles be fit here in India. After all the Israelis wouldnt want the Russians to get to know anything about their missile systems.

Also aircraft carriers almost never travel solo, but in what is called a carrier group having multiple warships.
