    PANAJI: As India firmed up the technology for its first indigenous aircraft carrier, the India - US Joint Working Group on Aircraft Carrier TechnologyCooperation (JWGACTC) arrived at INS Hansa to get a better understanding of the Indian Navy's fighter aircraft operations.

    The visit to Goa, is the fourth meeting of the joint working group since the two countries began to hold candid discussions on aircraft carrier technology in 2015. A delegation comprising of seven Indian officials and fourteen US delegates visited in Goa on 29.

    "The joint group visited the premier Naval Air Station Hansa and witnessed the flying facilities including a demonstration of the Mig 29K fighter aircraft operations. The delegation was also taken for a on board India's sole aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya on Tuesday," a naval source said.

    India sharing ops details of 29Ks with the US...........:hitwall::hitwall::hitwall::hitwall:

    Would Russia appreciate it? And Would it alienate India from Russia forever?

    There was also a report about INS Chakra too thaat Russia wants it back for the same concern........

    This is dangerous precedent for India too as it compromise are security set up.........

    I don't think classified details will be shared.
    It's detrimental for us too..

    Calm the hell down and stop banging your head on the wall :cool:

    No classified data will be shared. Why would it? No one is asking US to launch 29Ks from EMALS (we can't, in fact).

    This is merely to make the JWG familiar with how IN conducts carrier flight ops.

    This is just the flight path for launching. Wait till they need the structure information for stopping the airframe.

    Guessing that this group will try to find an optimal design for the Next Carrier ie it might have to launch all aircraft types (fighter) in the IN inventory

    Heck - wishful thinking - would we see a Ski jump with EMALS combo - ie 2 take-off the ski and 2 take-off the Angle deck - :p

    If you have one, you don't need the other.

    That is why is said ALL fighters -

    if you have EMALS - no Migs or if you have Ski - possible limit the load of Rafale (this thinking will change i know)

    Have BOTH - best of both worlds

    But alas - we don't live in an ideal world!
