Indian Navy Air Force to be doubled

The Indian Navy wants to double its fleet of aircraft.

According to Indian news agencies, the leadership of the Indian Navy has decided to increase the air fleet to 500 aircraft within the next few years. This is mainly about increasing the number of fighters and bombers, however. among other things, increasing the defense capacity requires also an additional purchase of reconnaissance and transport aircraft.

Experts do not exclude that India intends to increase the importance of the Navy by such actions, and given the given data, it is logical to assume that in the coming years the size of the defense budget of the country may grow several times, since in addition to buying the aircraft themselves, it is necessary to create conditions for their servicing.
