I was trying to point out that a ship design is basically a system of systems, just lifting out a few that have already been integrated and tried can be a significant means of risk reductioninch wrote:Not sure if qe design more beneficial to India altho be a great asset
They must have learned from the navalising of the Mig29... they paid for it and it is still half baked (in carrier use)Simon82 wrote: No doubt paying handsomely for the privilege of trouble shooting the design on the behalf of the French Navy.
Indeed, even with a 37% parallel build (where did I pick that one from ) with the French PA, would produce abt a 10-yr gapSimon82 wrote: INS Vishal is supposed to enter service in the early 2030s, so the timing would be pretty tight

Rafale XL was what came out of early sketches for FCAS - the final spec may turn out to be entirely different exc. for its size - but a carrier to match would be that much bigger that the number of nuclear reactors (based on what the French have) would have to go up from two to three.inch wrote: quite possibly the French design will probably be bigger than the qe class design by how much I don't know
