He will also watch high-speed manoeuvres by the western fleet ships, including aircraft carrier INS Viraat, Delhi class destroyers and Talwar class frigates.
The 44,500-tonne INS Vikramaditya, procured from Russia, is one of the newest acquisitions of the Indian Navy and the most powerful symbol of its military reach. It was commissioned by then defence minister A.K. Antony last November at Russia's Sevmash shipyard.
