‘Indian Navy to have 200 warships in next 10 years’

Indian Navy would have 200 warships in another 10 years, with three aircraft carriers in each of the three naval commands, for which orders have already been given to various docks in the country, a senior official said here on Wednesday.

‘Right now, we have 136 ships and we are targeting 200 in the next 10 years. All our docks in our country are full of orders,’ Rear Admiral Atul Kumar Jain, flag officer commanding in chief, Eastern Naval Command told reporters.

The Navy was looking at making destroyers and frigates, he said. ‘Right now, we have only one landing platform dock (LPD) INS Jalashwa. We are going for four more LPDs.’

He said INS Vikramaditya, which India bought from Russia would be inducted into the Navy later this month.
