For all the debates over its price, utility and delay in induction, aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya is sure to serve the Navy for at least 30 years, says a senior technical officer of the Navy.

“The entry of the Vikramaditya marks a paradigm shift, as it heralds a new era in carrier operations in the Indian Navy. The way it has been rebuilt and equipped with advanced systems and machinery will ensure that it plods on for another 30 to 40 years,” Rear Admiral S. Madhusudanan, Admiral Superintendent of the Naval Ship Repair Yard (NSRY) in Kochi

Rear Admiral Madhusudanan is elated about the forthcoming launch of India’s first indigenous aircraft carrier that will carry the legacy of India’s first carrier, INS Vikrant by taking on the name.

“INS Vikrant is a name that stands out. No other Indian warship has enjoyed the status it had, both in terms of combat proficiency and its reflection of the nation’s history,” said the Rear Admiral, who had served aboard the Vikrant and was part of the commissioning crew of INS Viraat.
