Now il-38 is going to be gradually phased out with P8I Aircraft now.
These Il-38 are a pretty good and Decent ASW(Anti Submarine Warfare) platform but now it's time to Retire them. Also they have already started retiring these Aircrafts if I am Not wrong.

Indian Navy had bought these Aircrafts at a unit cost of approximately 30 million Dollars.

Anyways now 4 P8I will be Stationed in INS Hansa Naval base in Goa here.
