Admiral Gorshkov aircraft carrier

Russia will deliver the modernised Admiral Gorshkov aircraft carrier to the Indian Navy in 2012.
The original $1.5 billion contract signed in 2004 between Russia's state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport and the Indian Navy envisioned that work on the aircraft carrier would be completed in 2008.
The Admiral Gorshkov, renamed INS Vikramaditya, is to replace India's INS Viraat carrier that is currently operational but is now 50 years old.
