INS Vikrant to be Fully Operational by November 2023

Speaking to reporters in Vizag on Wednesday, Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar said that the commissioning of the aircraft carrier INS Vikrant was a watershed moment for India and that all efforts are being made to have it fully operational by November 2023. The Indian Navy MiG-29K fighter jet recently landed on the INS Vikrant for the first time at night, marking a crucial step towards the battleship becoming fully operational with its air wing by the end of the year, he added.

INS Vikrant is now sailing in the Arabian Sea and was commissioned into the Indian Navy last September, marking an important milestone in India’s desire for self-reliance in the defence manufacturing industry. To accommodate INS Vikrant, a dock would be created at Vizag’s outer port.
