India is conducting testing of its 90% domeѕtіс aircraft carrier, which is the pride of New Delhi.
India’s first domeѕtіс aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant, has commenced trials in waters off the southern Indian port city of Cochin.According to the plan, these types of aircraft will be tested to take off and land on the INS Vikrant in the near future, before the ship can be fully operational in mid-2023.
The aircraft carrier INS Vikrant is worth an estimated $3.2 billion. India currently operates a single aircraft carrier, INS Vikramaditya. The ship with a displacement of 44,500 tons was purchased from Russia for $ 2.33 billion in November 2013. New Delhi has to spend another 2 billion USD to order 45 MiG-29K fighters to equip this ship.
