Vikramaditya arrives!


After a non-stop, 8000 nautical mile voyage without any port stops, the INS Vikramaditya has arrived in the Indian Navy's Area of Responsibility (AOR) and commenced integration with the Western Fleet.

Shown here is the INS Vikramditya (extreme left), INS Viraat in the foreground, INS Teg in the background, and INS Mumbai to the right.

It should have joined on the Navy day. But still some where. Good it did not stop on any port. Powerful engines.

I believe that the one in the foreground is INS Vikramaditya and the one in the 'extreme left' (opposite to INS Mumbai) is INS Viraat (a keen observer can actually notice the words R22 in its picture). You've probably got it the other way round in the caption. Thanks :)

Great Day for India today. INS Vikramaditya entering homeland and successful launch of GSLV today. Sir I would like to have your valuable comments on the impact of GSLV on Indian Defence research especially our own Swadeshi Cryogenic Engine. Regards

Yeah!

@ Sidharth

I don't have it wrong! R 22 is the Viraat.

When you caption a photo, extreme left means the ship that is at the extreme left in the photo, from the perspective of the viewer.

Looks like she's home! Any plans of a Karwar visit Ajai? Would be great to read a first person report with more pictures :)
