Ex Gorshkov now back in the water

Postby MikeJames » 22 Feb 2010 20:37

The former Russian carrier Gorshkov, under conversion to a conventional carrier to operate carrier versions of the Mig-29 fighter, the Mig-29K, has relocated from the drydock where she was being worked on and is now alongside the Russian post of Severomorsk in the the Kola Peninsular.

She is located directly centre of this Google Earth shot. http://maps.google.com/maps?t=h&q=64.58,39.8065&ie=UTF8&ll=64.580857,39.809228&spn=0.001451,0.009506&z=17

As you can see, still a lot of work to be done.

If you wander around the harbour you can see two Kirov class battlecruisers, three Typhoon class ballistic missile subs, the first of the new Grainey class attack subs and numerous smaller ships tied up.

Two interesting videos showing the tortuous story of the Ex-Gorshkov's conversion to the INS Vikramaditya.
Note the Regulation Navy issue earmuffs for the IN personnel.

Indian Navy Aircraft Carrier INS Vikramaditya catches fire,1 officer Dead

An Indian Navy officer died while controlling a fire that broke out in the country's biggest warship INS Vikramaditya. The incident happened on Friday morning when it was entering the harbour in Karwar naval base in Karnataka.

"Lt Cdr D.S. Chauhan bravely led the firefighting efforts in the affected compartment. Whilst the fire was brought under control, the officer suffered loss of consciousness owing to the smoke and fumes during the firefighting efforts. He was immediately evacuated to the Naval Hospital at Karwar, INHS Patanjali for medical attention. However, the officer could not be revived," the Navy said in its statement.

It added that the fire was brought under control by the ship’s crew in a swift action preventing any serious damage affecting the ship’s combat capability.

According to the Navy, a Board of Inquiry to investigate into the circumstances of the incident has been ordered.

This is the second tragic incident on INS Vikramaditya. In 2016, two people were killed following a leakage of toxic fumes from the sewage plant onboard the Russian-made aircraft carrier.

INS Vikramaditya is India's largest naval ship and is equipped with a variety of integral weapons and sensors and it was undergoing maintenance repair since June 1.

The aircraft carrier joined Indian Navy fleet two years ago in June, 2014. Commissioned on November 16, 2013 at Severodovinsk, Russia, the 44,500 tons displacement INS Vikramaditya is positioned at the Karwar naval base.
