Indian Navy issues letter of request issued for IAC-2

The India Navy has issued a letter of request to four major global shipbuilders - Lockheed Martin; UK company, BAE Systems, French shipbuilder, DCNS; and Russia’s Rosoboronexport - asking for proposals to help in designing a 65,000 tonne carrier ‘IAC-2’. Currently, Cochin Shipyard Ltd (CSL) is building IAC-1, a 40,000-tonne carrier named INS Vikrant, which is scheduled to be commissioned in 2018 supplementing INS Vikramaditya, the 45,000-tonne carrier bought from Russia.
