KOCHI (PTI):  India's first indigenous aircraft carrier (IAC) Vikrant has returned to Kochi harbour after completion of its third sea trials in high seas, a defence spokesperson has said.

"IAC returned from sea trials on January 16 (Sunday), wherein large number of ship systems were operated and tested with training on various equipment fitted onboard," the spokesperson said, adding that the trial data will now be analysed with mandatory inspections and balance work on the ship.

The IAC had begun its sea trial on January 9 to carry out complex manoeuvres in high seas ahead of its planned induction in August.

The 40,000-tonne aircraft carrier, the largest and most complex warship to be built in India, successfully completed a five-day maiden sea voyage in August last year and underwent 10-day sea trials in October.
