New Delhi: India’s first built aircraft carrier is inducted into the Navy on the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence. The ship is a testament to indigenization projects and the Make in India campaign.
The landing of fighter jets on this ship was successfully carried out last Monday. The LCA aircraft was successfully landed by Commodore Shivnath Dahiya of the Indian Navy on board the warship INS Vikrant and took off again.
Prime Minister Modi said on Twitter, “MiG-29K and LCA aircraft have been successfully landed on INS Vikrant warship. Efforts towards a self-reliant India are going on in full swing,” he said.
India has indigenously built an aircraft carrier and landed an indigenously-made fighter jet on it. Speaking about this, Deputy Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral S.N. Garmet said, “This is a huge achievement in the Make in India program of the Defense Department. This will encourage indigenization,” he said.
