The Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has approved the procurement of a P-8I training solution, the Indian MoD announced on 4 January.

The training solution will be procured from Boeing along with a ten year maintenance service.

This solution will simulate P-8I aircraft and mission systems to allow the navy to train and rehearse for P-8I operations.

The P-8I aircraft is equipped for long range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in support of broad area, maritime and littoral operations.

The first P-8I aircraft was inducted in Indian Navy in 2013. To date, eight aircraft, based at INS Rajali, have been deployed into Indian Naval service. In 2016, the MoD placed a follow-on order for four additional P-8I aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2020.
