Products 9-41 and 9-47 are the prototypes for Indian Navy INS "Vikramaditya" aircraft carrier (former "Admiral Gorshkov"). It's a second name "MiG-29K", first was product 9-31 in 1988 (2 aircraft with numbers #311 and #312).

Airframe concept is based on deeply modernized 9-15-4 (former fourth prototype of MiG-29M, which in 2001 became the so called "MiG-29MRCA" for Indian Multi-Role Combat Aircraft tender, between 2005-2006 called "MiG-29M2", and since January 2007 "MiG-35"). New shipborne aircraft have wider (11,99 m) folded wings, bigger flaps, wider stabilizers, strenghtened landing gear and, of course, arresting hook. Airframe of the 9-41 was new, but for 9-47 (first flight February 2007) it was old 9-15-5 (fifth prototype of MiG-29M).
