Indian Aircraft Carrier Project

Issue: 1 / 2018

It is reported that Principal Director Naval Design, has said that India’s first indigenous aircraft carrier will be ready for induction by 2020, defying the assessment of a report from India’s Comptroller and Auditor General that the future INS Vikrant won’t be ready for service until 2023. It was also said that that the vessel will be ready for harbour trials by the end of 2018, which will then be followed up by sea trials and aviation trials. A model of Vikrant is likely to be displayed during the Republic Day 2018 parade.
