    There are also 2 hydro-graphic survey ships under construction for IN. Additionally I think we can expect at least 1-2 new Minesweepers by 2015 as the first 3-4 will be built in SK and this deal will be signed this FY.

    + Also by the end of this year "Operation Seabird" or Karwar naval base will be fully completed and will become the biggest naval base in Asia. The base has cost something like $2 BN to build but will be able to berth 45-60 warships including IN ACCs. This will also mean the Mumbai naval base can have assets moved away so as to de-congest Mumbai harbor and make sure no incidents like what happened with INS Vindhyagiri happen again.

    Mr. Antony talked about Indian Navy getting at least 5 ships every year from now on. Also he said Navy will get 7 ships this fiscal.So the number of ships should be more than 20 till 2015, which are the other ships we are inducting to account for the difference?

    Read post #2.



    +note that these only relate to major vessels and not the 100s of smaller patrol boats and FIC the IN is also procuring and will recieve in the next 1-3 years.

    I've heard the first vessel will be delivered by Q4 2015 easily, second one is 50/50 before 2015- most likely Q1/2 2016.
