Indian defence minister AK Antony has confirmed that India will indeed order an additional 29 MiG-29K combat jets for the Indian Navy over and above the initial order placed for 16 such fighters.
"As per the navy's requirements we will be buying 29 additional fighter aircraft from Russia," Antony told reporters after formally inducting the navy's first four MiG-29Ks.
He, however, did mention any time frame for the supply of the fresh batch.
The induction ceremony was held at the navy's shore-based establishment at Dabolim, INS Hansa, and was marked by a spectacular fly past performed by the newly inducted fighter aircraft.
