The first aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya was added to the Indian Navy in 2013. Although it was modified. Now India is waiting for INS to sell. This is the first aircraft carrier made in the country. It is being built at Cochin Shipyard in Kerala. However, it took 17 years to make it with the consent of the cabinet. That is why the Indian Navy wants to start the work of integrating the third aircraft carrier very soon. China currently has five aircraft carriers, with a sixth to be added soon.
In a message on the occasion of Naval Day yesterday, the Chief of Naval Staff said that if India wants to be a five trillion dollar economy, it needs to increase its military strength to protect it.
