Background
As we achieved our independence, our visionary leaders saw the centrality of a powerful navy and set us on the right path by envisioning an Indian navy focused on aircraft carriers for sea control in our vast areas of maritime interest. INS Vikrant, India's first aircraft carrier was acquired from Great Britain and launched on 04 March 1961. The INS Vikrant Majestic was a carrier of the Catatubar (Catapult Assisted Take Off but Return of Arrest) and operated Sea Hawk Fighters, Allied (Anti-Submarine Warfare) aircraft and Helicopter Search. Consistent with his vision, India got ahead of HMS Hermes, a Centaur class STOVL carrier and P te victims of the Falklands War. INS Virat was commissioned on 12 May 1987 as India's first STOVL carrier to operate India's second aircraft carrier and Sea Harrier aircraft. Immediately after the acquisition of INS Virat, INS Vikrant was also switched from October Carrier to STOVL (Short Take-and-F and Vertical Landing) carriers. INS Vikrant was revoked in 1997 after 36 years of proud service under Indian authorities. There have been two aircraft carriers in India for almost a decade and the Indian Navy was fully aware of the criticism that aircraft carriers were available for deployment at every coast to fulfill the assigned tasks of the Navy. Recognizing the importance of aircraft carriers, the Indian Navy has already begun exploring the possibility of designing and building indigenously aircraft carriers, a project that rightly began in the late 90's with the idea of ​​an air defense ship. However, given the long gestation period of such projects, INS. The search for a replacement for Vikrant gained momentum as his disposal approached.

A lengthy re-negotiation was held in the coming months to reach a mutually acceptable price for the renovation. Finally, in December 2009, the Indian and Russian parties reached an agreement on the final cost of delivery of the ship. More significantly, it was agreed that the ship would be delivered only in 2012. Although the cost of renegotiating was significantly higher than originally agreed, Gorshkov's addition would add to the blue water. Indian naval requirements compensated for the higher cost.

New incarnation 'Vikramaditya'
An aircraft carrier carrying powerful long-range multi-role fighters is an inherently designed platform for power launches. Just as Gorshkov was transformed into Vikramaditya, so will Vikramaditya be the face of the Indian Navy's Fleet Air Arm.
