IAC Vikrant enters another phase of sea trials

The first indigenous aircraft carrier (IAC) Vikrant of India has entered another phase of sea trials on Sunday. The mighty vessel will conduct complex maneuvers in high tide seas. 

“The IAC now sails to undertake complex maneuvers to establish specific readings of how the ship performs in various conditions,” said Indian Navy spokesperson Vivek Madhwal.  

IAC Vikrant is largest indigenous warship of India

The aircraft carrier weighs 40,000 tons, and it is the largest warship that has been built in India. The total spending of this warship stands Rs 23000 crore and its construction has added India into a group of few nations having capabilities to build state-of-the-art aircraft carriers.  

Many scientists from the Naval Science and Technological Laboratory, which is a DRDO facility situated in Visakhapatnam, are closely monitoring the third phase of sea trials of IAC Vikrant.  

“Despite surging COVID cases in the country and the resultant challenges, the combined teams from multiple organizations associated with the project are upbeat and committed to meet the timeliness,” Commander Madhwal added.
