Indian Carrier Sale




LONDON -- India's decision on whether to buy the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Gorshkov is imminent, Jane's Defense Weekly said Wednesday.


India's chief of naval staff, Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat, was due in Moscow this week for a 10-day official visit to look at Russia's plans to convert the heavy cruiser, the military magazine said, quoting Indian sources.


The price tag for the modernized 44,500-ton ship is between $700 million and $800 million, Jane's said.
