Tass news report
St. Petersburg’s Proletarski Zavod  (Proletarian Factory) will supply arresting gears and breaking machines for the under construction INS Vikrant aircraft carrier. The company has already supplied similar equipment for the INS Vikramaditya, Yury Skorikov, the factory’s general director told.

“A contract has been signed with the Indian side. We are making arresting gears for the Vikrant aircraft carrier,” Skorikov said. He added that the enterprise is now considering an agreement on post-guarantee servicing of the arresting gears that are already found in the Vikramaditya since the basic time period of the warranty has already run out.

“We’ve already put braking machines on the Vikramaditya and are manufacturing them for the Vikrant aircraft carrier to be supplied in 2015,” Skorikov said. Proletarski Zavod also produces arresting gears for naval aviation pilot training complexes in Yeysk, Russia as well as in the Indian state of Goa. “Four arresting gears were delivered to Yeysk and the first machine has already been installed,” said Skorikov. “Deliveries were completed in 2013. Right now the equipment is being mounted.”
