India has been using warships since 1961. And none of them, including the old INS Vikrant, were built in India. In fact, both INS Vikrant and INS Viraat were inducted in the Indian Navy back in 1961 and 1987 respectively and they were constructed by the British. They were named — `HMS Hercules’ and `HMS Hermes’ respectively, before they were commissioned in the Indian Navy.
The aircraft carrier is essential part of any navy to be considered as `blue water navy’ – which in easy terms means that the navy with an aircraft carrier has the capacity to project that country’s power across the high seas. A navy’s aircraft carrier is the capital ship of a battle group/carrier strike and is escorted by a group of destroyers, frigates, missile cruisers, submarines and supply ships and of course on board are helicopters and fighter jets, UAV as well.
INS Vikrant is the largest ship ever built in India's maritime history at a cost of Rs 20,000 crore. It is also the first ship designed and built indigenously. INS Vikrant represents a step forward in India’s ambitions to build a robust and self-reliant domestic defence sector. The warship has been built using indigenous equipment and machinery supplied by India’s major industrial houses as well more than 100 micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
