By 2025, an Indian navy base in Karwar, Karnataka, would be home to 30 vessels and submarines, making it Asia’s largest naval base. The facility will be established over 11,000 acres as part of Project Seabird, with the goal of providing fleet support and repair to warships.
Karwar is the home port of India’s only aircraft carrier, the INS Vikramaditya, which is being visited by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for a review on Thursday and Friday. The Defence Minister is examining the project’s development for the second time. Tomorrow, he will go on a submarine mission.
Karwar will be the home to the future carrier INS Vikrant. The state government’s plan to expand the runway, allowing civil flight operations, has been considered into the Naval Air Station being built. The economy of the region will benefit as a result of this. The new runway will be able to accommodate Navy maritime planes as well as combat jets.
