Basing aircraft on the island will require the construction of additional infrastructure, which comes with a full-fledged naval base. Operating from Agaléga, the Indian Navy’s long-range aircraft will be able to keep an eye on the western and southern Indian Ocean, and on the eastern and southern coast of Africa, significantly improving India’s maritime domain awareness in the region.
Mauritius and India go decades back as far as the domain of security is concerned. Historically, mostly an Indian citizen/officer has been the NSA of Mauritius.
Mauritius and Indian security relations are too deep. There is not much on the net but enough for the masses.
This arrangement seems another jewel in the crown.

Re: Indian Naval Aviation - Air Arm & its Carriers

Anyone seen any update on the status of the elevators for the Vikrant?

On another note, seen discussions on twitter about the PLANs FC-31 after wire models of it were spotted on its existing PLAN STOBAR carriers. While it's likely the mock up is to help the PLAN with deck handling trials and such like, it'll be interesting to see if the PLAN fields them on the older carriers, all previous assumptions were that these jets would form the backbone of the PLAN air arm once Fujian and other CATOBAR carriers get commissioned. The FC-31 would sure be an upgrade of their Flanker based J-15s.

An early clip on INS Garuda showing the Sealand.

The video seems to be unavaible to post. Try searching for Short Sealand Indian Navy on Google videos
