Thanks to the Navy’s stringent maintenance regimen, we have been able to operate Viraat without major glitches until now. But the Harrier fleet has dwindled so much that within the Navy, Viraat is often referred to as a ‘One Harrier carrier’. No point flogging it any further,” an official said.
Sad to say, even with a 56 year old "one Harrier carrier", the Indian Navy still has significantly more carrier strike power than the RN has had for several years, or will have for several more.

Could be just in time to take ownership/control of the Prince of Wales, would be ideal for their existing Harrier fleet.
