A complex for training aircraft carrier-based pilots, which was built in India with assistance from Russian enterprises, has been put into operation and is already being used, a source close to the military-technical cooperation sphere told Interfax on May 18.
“The Nitka complex, which is used for practicing takeoff and landing of planes on the decks of aircraft carriers has been fully provided to the Indian partners,” the source said.
The source emphasized that the Nitka complex, which was built in India, “makes it possible to practice the entire cycle of carrier-based aviation planes, including landing using fixation on an arrester system rope.”
