    I extend an invite to you to please come down to India and learn your own language from us Indians. You have pathetic knowledge of your national language.
    I too have served in Navy and hold watchkeeping certificate. Towing exercises are done as a routine on warships. Don't teach me you old fart.

    Can a tug boat about 10K tons with Bollard pull of not more than 20k tons pull a warship of 65k tons alone? Where in that video did we see the warship coming alongside being pulled by that tug? I have seen many idiots like you on ships and you are a general commodity. Every shippy is big a bullshit as you are when it comes to knowledge and their existence as a shudra comes alive when arranged against an Aviator. We Aviators are superior to you shippy shit and you know that. I know that even in RN, You have the same problem of being treated like bird shit by Aviators.

    Shudra means man power component, also sometimes means "everything other than the three other varnas", it doesn't mean brainless, or that one is lacking in knowledge. It simply means, working in physical. Just because someone is working in physical doesn't mean, he is brainless too. Someone with brains can also be working in physical, when there is a need.

    Shudra also means a person who has no knowledge of truth as they did not study Vedas.

    That is western illiterate interpretation. Not native. Chatura Varna simply classifies the four components you need to do any positive action and its up-keep, that is knowledge (brahmin), security (kshtriyata), talent to identify opportunities and make use of it (vyashya) and manpower (shudra).

    I think India is the only country in the world with its own list of Navel accidents on Wikipedia

    List of Indian Navpal accidents

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    2000 - 2010[edit]

    • December 2005: INS Trishul (F43), a Talwar-class frigate, collided with a commercial vessel, Ambuja Laxmi, outside the Mumbai harbor, while returning from a training mission. These class of ships use stealth technologies and a special hull design to ensure a reduced radar cross section. Radar systems installed by the port authorities and those on board the Ambuja Laxmi were unable to detect INS Trishul and prevent the side on collision. No casualties were reported.[8][9]
    • April 2006: INS Prahar (K98), Veer class corvette, sank after colliding with the MV Rajiv Gandhi vessel about 20 nautical miles away from the Goa coast. No casualties were reported. The commanding officer of the ship, Lieutenant Commander Yogesh Tripathi was found guilty of negligence by an Indian Navy court-martial and dismissed from service.[10]
    • September 2006: INS Dunagiri (F36), Nilgiri class frigate, collided with a Shipping Corporation of India merchant vessel, the MV Kiti, off the coast of Mumbai. There were no casualties, but the Dunagiri suffered damage and required extensive repairs.[11][12]
    • January 2008: INS Sindhughosh (S55), a Kilo-class submarine, collided with a foreign merchant vessel MV Leeds Castle while trying to surface in waters north of Mumbai.[9] The submarine was taking part in fleet-level war games, when the accident occurred. The Navy termed it a minor incident with no casualties reported.
    • February 2008: Five crew were killed and three critically injured due to exposure to hydrogen sulfide aboard INS Jalashwa (L41), a landing platform dock. The ship was taking part in exercises in the Bay of Bengal.[13]
    • August 2009: A collision of the missile corvette INS Kuthar (P46) with destroyer INS Ranvir (D54) in the Bay of Bengal was traced to a rudder failure, compounded by a flawed maneuver.[1]

    2010 - present[edit]
    • In 2010, three crew men on destroyer INS Mumbai (D62) were instantly killed when an AK-630 Close-in weapon system went off as safety drills were not followed.[1]
    • January 2011: INS Vindhyagiri (F42), a Nilgiri-class frigate, capsized after a collision with a Cyprus-flagged merchant vessel MV Nordlake near the Sunk Rock light house, following which a major fire broke out in the ship's engine and boiler room. Everyone on board was evacuated as soon as the fire broke out and hence there were no casualties.[14] INS Vindhyagiri was later decommissioned.[15]
    • August 2013: Blasts ripped through the torpedo compartment of the INS Sindhurakshak (S63) while it was berthed at the naval dockyard off the Mumbai coast. Fifteen Sailors and three officers were killed.[16] Other sources state that a small explosion occurred around midnight which then triggered the two larger explosions.[17] The disaster was thought to be the Indian navy's worst since the sinking of the frigate INS Khukri by a Pakistani submarine during the 1971 war.[18]
    • December 2013: INS Konkan (M72), a Pondicherry-class minesweeper under the Eastern Naval Command, caught fire at the naval dockyard at Visakhapatnam while undergoing repairs. The fire engulfed much of the ship's interior before it was put off. No casualties were reported.[19]
    • December 2013: In the second incident in the same month, INS Talwar (F40), the lead ship of the Talwar class frigate of the Indian Navy, collided with a fishing trawler injuring four of the 27 people on board the trawler and sinking it. The fishing trawler was operating without lights.[20] The captain of the ship was subsequently stripped of command.[21]
    • December 2013: In the third incident in the same month, INS Tarkash (F50), again a Talwar class frigate, suffered damage to its hull when it hit the jetty while docking at the Mumbai naval base. The navy ordered a board of inquiry.[22]
    • January 2014: INS Betwa (F39), an indigenously built Brahmaputra class guided missile frigate, ran aground and collided with an unidentified object while approaching the Mumbai naval base. The sonar system of the frigate was cracked, leading to faulty readings and an ingress of saltwater into sensitive equipment.[23]
    • January 2014: In the second incident in the same month, INS Vipul (K46), a veer class corvette of the elite 22nd Killer Missile Vessel Squadron, was detected with a hole in its pillar compartment which forced the ship back into the harbour while it was on an operational deployment.[24]
    • February 2014: On 3 February, INS Airavat (L24), a Shardul class amphibious warfare vessel, ran aground while returning to its home base at Visakhapatnam, causing slight damage to its propellers. Following the incident, its commanding officer, Captain JPS Virk, was relieved of command pending the findings of a Board of Inquiry.[25]
    • February 2014: On 26 February, INS Sindhuratna (S59), a Kilo-class submarine, had a fire detected on board when trials were being conducted which resulted in smoke leading to suffocation and death of two officers. Seven sailors were reported injured and were airlifted to the naval base hospital in Mumbai.[26] According to the naval board of inquiry, the fire was caused due to problems in the cables of the vessel.[27] This particular incident led to the resignation of Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Admiral D K Joshi on 26 February 2014, who owned moral responsibility for the incidents in the past few months.[28]
    • March 2014: INS Kolkata, had a malfunction on board which led to a toxic gas leak killing Commander Kuntal Wadhwa instantly.[29] It seems that the ship suffered malfunction in its carbon dioxide unit while undergoing machinery trials, leading to gas leakage.[30] Since the ship was not commissioned at the time of the incident, the enquiry into the mishap will be done by Mazagon Dock Limited, where the ship was constructed.

    • May 2014: INS Ganga (F22) suffered a minor explosion in the boiler room while undergoing a refit at the Mumbai dockyard. Four people suffered minor injuries. There was no fire and no equipment was damaged.[31][32][33]
    • November 2014: A Torpedo Recovery Vessel of the Astravahini class (A-73) sank 30 NM off the Vizag coast during a routine mission to as er m Dornier Do 228 aircraft belonging to the Indian Navy Aviation Squadron 310, on a routine training mission, lost radar recovtorpedoes fired by fleet ships during a routine exercise. The accident resulted in the tragic death of one sailor while four others were reported contact and ditched at sea about 20 nautical miles South West of Goa on the night of 24 March 15. The aircrew on board the aircraft comprised three officers (two Pilots and one woman Observer). The lone Survivor, Commander Nikhil Kuldip Joshi, was picked up by a passing fishing boat. The bodies of the other two officers Lieutenant Abhinav Nagori and Lieutenant Kiran Shekhawat have been recovered. Media reports suggest that the woman observer could be the first woman in India’s military to die in active service. Meanwhile, a Board of Inquiry has been ordered to establish the cause of the accident.[35][36]
    • November 2015: INS Kochi (D64), a Kolkata-class destroyer, conducted BrahMos missile test firings whilst the airspace remained open to traffic, due to a communication failureissing however 23 other personnel were rescued by SAR teams deployed right after the incident.[34]

    Russian Navy MiG-29K lost in Mediterranean
    Published: November 14th, 2016

    Reports from sources close to Combat Aircraft confirm that a Russian Navy Mikoyan MiG-29KR/KUBR naval fighter crashed in the Mediterranean during operations from the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov yesterday afternoon, November 13.

    The aircraft apparently came down close to the carrier on its return from a mission flown over Syria. Wreckage of the aircraft has been recovered, and the pilot was picked up by a Russian Navy search and rescue helicopter. There is currently no confirmation regarding his condition.

    Initial indications are that the aircraft was a two-seat MiG-29KUBR version. Operated by the 100th Independent Shipborne Fighter Aviation Regiment, a total of four MiG-29KR/KUBRs were understood to be on board the carrier.

    If confirmed, the news would deal a significant blow to the debut combat deployment of the Admiral Kuznetsov, which was expected to commence air strikes against rebel-held areas of Aleppo, as the Syrian regime pushes for the final liberation of the city, with Russian air support.

    The deployment of the carrier to the eastern Mediterranean is expected to allow Russian Navy Aviation to evaluate and test its recently delivered MiG-29KR/KUBR multi-role fighters, as well as its newly modernized Sukhoi Su-33 shipborne fighters.

    Video posted on social media suggests that elements of the MiG-29KR/KUBR contingent were flying over Syria as of November 12.

    UPDATE: After Combat Aircraft broke this story, the story was confirmed to Fox News by two unnamed US intelligence officials.

    Full details of the Admiral Kuznetsov deployment and the embarked air group will appear in the January issue of Combat Aircraft.
