The small Kalinga Stadium with a modest seating capacity now resembled a cauldron. bombers, supporting ships missiles bombers and highly sophisticated electronic equipment that accompany a carrier at all times In other words a carries is simply not a big platform on the sea it is a highly integrated ‘floating town’ having short runways from which the fighter aircraft can land and take off It is a ubiquitous fighting system that has enhanced combat power with extended reach and rapid response capability Besides critics point out that the "leviathan" that a carrier is has a very soft underbelly that is becoming increasingly vulnerable to attacks from missiles and submarines with little chances of sustaining the damage and surviving In other words there are doubts over an aircraft carrier’s relevance in the ever changing battle-space of modern warfare Is it then not a helpless ‘prima donna’ occupying the centre-stage at sea that needs protection at all times This is a familiar question one often encounters from Air Force officers who suggest that more investments in the country’s Air wing instead of spending billions on carriers will yield better results in providingair-protection to the Navy’s assets in the sea However both the above arguments against the aircraft carriers need to be taken with a pinch of salt All told in every major conflict that the world has seen in the last 70 years – whether it is Vietnam or Falklands – aircraft carriers have played a major role India is a major maritime power having lots of stakes in the Indian Ocean region An aircraft carrier is the most effective means available today of ensuring sea control stakes that are not only military in nature (threats from China and Pakistan and dangers of piracy particularly in the region stretching from the Horn of Africa in the west to the Straits of Malacca in the east) but also economic-driven (keeping sea-lanes free and open as our trade is essentially sea-driven; there are maritime resources under the sea in our exclusive economic zone; protecting the interests of Indians working in almost all the important countries in Australasia Southeast Asia West Asia and Africa) In other words a rapidly rising India must have peaceful and secure seas around it by projecting its ‘power’ In military parlance it is called "sea control" And nothing ensures sea control better than an aircraft carrier In fact India’s 2009 Maritime Doctrine clearly stipulates that "sea control is the central concept around which the Indian Navy is structured and aircraft carriers are decidedly the most substantial contributors to it” The carriers with a group of accompanying frigates destroyers and submarines provide animage of absolute naval dominance of the high seas and thus projects the overall power of the country And this power projection cannot be quantified in terms of money; the overall accrual to the national power far outweighs the monetary costs India’s Indigenous Aircraft Carrier P-71 "Vikrant" Reuters In regard to the factor of vulnerability no weapon-system or platform has ever been immune to challenges in human history And yet the fact remains that aircraft carriers with improved technologies have not only survived but also remained a step or two ahead of threats of ballistic missiles counter-measures and obsolescence In fact the last carrier that was sunk was way back in 1945 – the USS Bismarck Sea (US Navy) that sank with 318 men onboard when it was hit by two Japanese kamikazes Carriers today are capable of neutralising hostile ships aircraft and submarines before they become a threat In fact a launch of a weapon against any carrier can be instantly detected intercepted and destroyed at some point in its ballistic trajectory As it is an aircraft carrier can move over 600 km a day which translates to over one million square nautical miles of ocean area which an adversary has to search By every means it is a Herculean task In any case given its sheer size build philosophy and damage control features an aircraft carrier has an amazing capacity to absorb damage That is why the Indian Navy has a point when it points out that it cannot remain behind itscomparable friends allies and rivals with aircraft carriers The US alone has 10 of the 18 aircraft carriers in service with various navies across different oceans Now let us move on to the second question: How many carriers should India have It may be noted that the Indian Navy has been operating aircraft carriers continuously since 1961 With the decommissioning of INS Viraat India at the moment has only one – the 45000 ton Vikramaditya However the 40000 ton INS Vikrant (formerly Project 71 Air Defence Ship or Indigenous Aircraft Carrier) is under construction at the Cochin Shipyard It is an indigenous carrier that is likely to be commissioned in 2018 Then there is INS Vishal (IAC-II) the second Vikrant-class aircraft carrier which is currently in its design phase and will be built by Cochin Shipyard for the Indian Navy It is intended to be the first super carrier to be built in India with an increase in displacement and proposals to incorporate nuclear propulsion Supposed to join the Navy in 2025 this super carrier will weigh 65000 tons and will be about 300 metres long to host a notional air wing of at least 50 aircraft: 35 strike fighters three airborne early warning (AEW) platforms eight anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and utility helicopters and four support aircraft aerial tankers or electronic warfare (EW) platforms It is expected to be capable of speeds greater than 30 knots (56 km per hour) However in designing this super carrier India has sought the help of major global shipbuilders and this "help" includes the possibility of technological collaborations The United States it is said is very keen for such collaborations In fact the two countries have already held talks in this regard under the banner of ‘the India-US joint working group on aircraft carrier technologies’ In other words going by the available official literature India is going to have three operational aircraft carriers by 2030 But senior officials say privately that the ideal number should be six – five in active duty and one in reserve – to be used in rotation given that the country has a large coastline and maritime interests that are dependent on safety and security of arguably the world’s most important shipping artery running through the Indian and Pacific Oceans Brussels: A lawyer’s assistant says a judicial hearing in Brussels for Paris

a measure to give greater powers to separatists in eastern Ukraine nationalist protesters clashed with police outside parliament on Monday and the Interior Ministry said one officer was killed in a grenade blast and more than 100 were wounded It was the worst violence in the capital since the government took power in February 2014 A grenade exploded during a clash between protesters and police outside the Parliament in Kiev AP The decentralization of power was a condition demanded by Russia for a truce signed in Minsk in February aimed at ending the fighting between Ukrainian government troops and Russia-backed separatists that has left more than 6800 dead since April 2014 But Ukrainian nationalists strongly oppose changing the constitution saying that would threaten the country’s sovereignty and independence In a televised address Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called decentralization "a difficult but a logical step toward peace" and insisted that it would not grant autonomy to the rebels in Donetsk and Luhansk The measure won preliminary approval on Monday with 265 deputies in the 450-seat parliament voting for it But three parties that are part of the majority coalition in parliament refused to give their support showing the difficulty that Poroshenko faces even within his own pro-Western camp in fulfilling the peace agreement When the decentralization bill comes up for final approval he will need to get at least 300 votes as required for amending the constitution "This is not a road to peace and not a road to decentralization" said the leader of one of those dissenting parties former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko "This is the diametrically opposite process which will lead to the loss of new territories" The officer who was killed in the clashes on Monday was a 25-year-old conscript Interior Minister Arsen Avakov told reporters He said 122 people were hospitalized — most of them officers but also some Ukrainian journalists and two French reporters No injuries were reported among the several hundred protesters including 100 die-hard activists most of whom are members of Svoboda a nationalist party that holds only a handful of seats in parliament The protesters were carrying sticks and truncheons Some of them were masked Avakov said that about 30 people have been detained including the protester who threw the grenade who he identified as a Svoboda member who fought in the east in one of the volunteer battalions that are loosely controlled by the government Poroshenko described the violence outside parliament as a "stab in the back" and pledged to prosecute "all political leaders" who were behind the clashes He said Monday’s vote confirmed Ukraine’s "position as a trusted partner which fulfills its international obligations" and said the country risks losing the support of the West and being left "alone with the aggressor" if it fails to meet the conditions of the truce The Minsk peace agreement was negotiated with the leaders of Germany and France as well as with Russian President Vladimir Putin While Ukrainian nationalists fear the decentralization bill would incite separatism Moscow and the Russia-backed rebels say it doesn’t give the regions sufficient powers and falls short of the pledges Kiev made in Minsk A final vote on the constitutional changes will be held during parliament’s fall session which begins on Tuesday No specific date has yet been set Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in a live address on television denounced the violence saying the right-wing protesters were "worse" than the separatist rebels because they were destroying the country from within "under the guise of patriotism" He called for life imprisonment for the protester who threw the grenade "The cynicism of this crime lies in the fact that while the Russian federation and its bandits are trying and failing to destroy the Ukrainian state on the eastern front the so-called pro-Ukrainian political forces are trying to open another front in the country’s midst" He called on all Ukrainian political parties to rally around the government and to condemn the violence Avakov blamed the clashes on the Svoboda party which polled less than 5 percent in last year’s parliamentary election and its leader Oleg Tyahnybok who stood side by side with the interior minister during the anti-government protests that toppled then-president Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014 "No political differences can justify what you did outside the Rada today" Avakov said referring to the parliament Svoboda blamed the government saying that it "provoked Ukrainians to protest" by presenting a bill that it called tantamount to "capitulation to the Kremlin" Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov in comments to Russian news agencies voiced Moscow’s concern about the clashes in Kiev but wouldn’t comment on the bill European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini called the clashes "worrying" and said the vote "will facilitate the implementation of the Minsk agreements" In Berlin German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she’s open to holding a new summit with the leaders of Russia Ukraine and France on the settlement in eastern Ukraine AP The United States has the largest number of active carriers presently, appearing for the marine.
