Answer by Ajit Saha:
Friends I want to give my opinion.
I am from naval background. Every Time people( civilian) think that we buy OLD SCRAPS from Russia, USA and other countries, they don't know that the GOI and Defense department are using proper funds for converting those scrap to Efficient working machine.
Generally , we buy 2nd hand automobiles ,we give it to a shop and they make it as a new one.
Same applies here.
We BUY scraps; We are at learning stage if we convert scrap to working pieces then Insha-allah in future we are gonna make powerful ships and arms.
And we are making powerful ships and arms.
These are few indigenous example.
We bought scrap Admiral Gorshkov a.k.a (INS Vikramaditya)
We converted that scrap to such a powerful machine that even NATO's Norwegian aircraft (brain behind it, ofcourse USA) tried to take acoustic signature of the machine by dropping while in International waters and to shoo away MiG-29 was sent by Russia (Images below). See many countries don't have Aircraft carrier , and we are at learning stage if we learn how to convert scrap to working machine then in future we are definitely gonna make indigenous Aircraft carrier and many other things.
Have FAITH in OUR country and have a positive HOPE .
Edit- OP is modifying his question.
New edit- Why do they keep showing it as new equipment?
My answer would be: While recreating, we use many new radars, sonar and many new equipment form latest tech. Dont have a misconception that we are using used sonar,telecom,guns, missiles and any other thing from OLD SHIP/ SCRAP.
Everything is new.
Only the base is taken else everything is new.
We do not have to show or LIE about it . When we repair in dry dock we make the machine a hell killing machine. So you do n0t have to worry about that.
Chill your borders are in safe hands.
