New Delhi: Indian Navy’s aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya is carrying out sea trials post-refit, Indian Navy officials said on Monday, adding that the aircraft carrier is expected to complete the trials soon and is expected to perform operational roles.

Indian Navy operates MiG-29K fighter jets from the aircraft carrier.

The INS Vikramaditya, formerly the Kiev-class warship Admiral Gorshkov, was inducted into service in 2014.

The 45,000-ton aircraft carrier could hold as many as twenty MiG-29K fighters, along with utility helicopters, on its flight deck.

At present, India has two aircraft carriers — INS Vikramaditya and INS Viraat, while it is planning to develop a third — INS Vishaal by 2030.
