    Indian Navy Sea Bird will be operational soon

    NEW DELHI: The long-pending Sea Bird Project of the Indian Navy will become operational later this month, Indian Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee announced in the Rajya Sabha (Upper House) on Wednesday. He also said that the ongoing construction of an Air Defence Ship (ADS) at the Cochin Shipyad in Kochi (Kerala) has put India among few countries in the world who have the capacity to manufacture an aircraft carrier.

    ... Mukherjee further said that the indigenous construction of the aircraft carrier at a cost of Rs 28.80 billion was approved in January 2003 and it is likely to be ready by 2011-12. The aircraft carrier will have the capacity to carry the weight load of approximately 37,500 metric tonnes.

    Mukherjee said the Indian Navy requires three aircraft carriers so that two are operationally available at all the times. Presently, only one INS Viraat aircraft carrier is in operation with the Navy.

    ... and this is why the Hindutan has marched way way ahead in naval development compared to Pakistan. And oh, every Pakistan should learn, it's the navy that makes a nation powerfull, not the air force because the air force is only limited within it's own borders while the navy conquers the world.
