New Delhi: After a delay of almost five years, India's largest warship aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya today reached its home base Karwar in Karnataka.

The long-awaited USD 2.3 billion aircraft carrier had started its voyage towards India from Russia after it was inducted formally on November 16 there by Defence Minister A K Antony.

The largest warship in our inventory reached Karwar, which is its home base and developed to berth a vessel of this size, Navy officials said here.

The aircraft carrier will now go through the process of getting inducted and be made fully operational as the Indian Navy pilots train to operate from it, they said.

The aircraft carrier is expected to take at least three to four months to get integrated in the force, they said.
