It’s more or less confirmed now that the Indian Navy will be going for a repeat order of the IAC-I aka INS Vikrant, a 44000-tonne aircraft carrier with some modifications and upgrades to its overhaul design and system to incorporate newer technologies. The Navy is also in process of starting a study for a larger carrier as informed by Admiral R Hari Kumar to the media.
The original plan was to have a 65000-tonne aircraft carrier as IAC-II but now it has been decided to go for a sister class ship of the IAC-I with some technology upgradation and some structural changes to its lift size.
IAC-II if approved next year will be ready by the 2030-31 period to commence its trials and in the same period, the Navy is also confident that it will have IAC-III designs ready by then.
