The Vikrant served in the India-Pakistan War of 1971, and in the liberation of Goa from the Portuguese, providing a sea base for Harrier jump jets, Seahawks and helicopters, some of which are still on board. Tickets are available from the booking offices near the Gateway. INS Vikrant was decommissioned on January 31, 1997.
