The Indian Navy has reportedly submitted a formal proposal to the government for the construction of a third aircraft carrier. This proposed vessel would be the second indigenously built carrier for India, signifying a major stride in the nation’s quest for self-reliance in defense manufacturing.

Indian defense analysts believe that this new aircraft carrier is crucial for India’s ambitions of becoming the dominant power in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR). A strong naval presence with robust carrier capabilities is seen as a key factor in achieving this goal.

The proposal comes after the successful commissioning of India’s first domestically built aircraft carrier, the INS Vikrant, in 2022. This marked a significant milestone in India’s defense indigenization efforts.

The proposed third carrier is expected to be similar to the INS Vikrant in its core design. However, it will likely incorporate improvements to accommodate larger aircraft on its lifts. Additionally, the design might be adapted to facilitate the operation of High-Altitude, Long-Endurance (HALE) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the future.

The government’s decision on the proposal for the third aircraft carrier is awaited. If approved, this project would represent a substantial investment in bolstering India’s naval power and securing its strategic interests in the IOR.
