外文标题：India, US kick off talks on cooperation in construction of aircraft carriers
NEW DELHI: India has now kicked off discussions with the US on collaboration in technologies associated with aircraft carriers, in a move which comes soon after the defence ministry here set the ball rolling for construction of the country's largest-ever warship, the 65,000-tonne INS Vishal.
The India-US joint working group on aircraft carrier technologies met for the first time in the US from August 12 to 14, which also saw the Indian delegation led by Western Naval Command chief Vice Admiral SPS Cheema visit the under-construction supercarrier Gerald Ford at Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia.
Aircraft carriers like Ford, which will have EMALS (electromagnetic aircraft launch systems) technology to replace the traditional steam catapults for launching aircraft, are of special interest to India since it wants INS Vishal to have similar systems.
I am sure we will ask for technology transfer and they will show the middle finger. :P
another talk that will go on till eternity....and Indians think they will get this ! pipe dreamers !
good with transfer of technology
This is very good news for building india's defence capability and ensuring countries like China do not encircle us
Inspite of time delays INDIA seem to have aquired the urgency to upgrade its defense capabilities in all of its arms commensurate to its geo political stature which is also growing robustly.INDIA seem to be getting more pragmatic&less moralistic due to its understanding of the ongoing events many of which are rather troubling.
