When planning a heist for computer parts, you’d most likely expect the criminals to target a local electronics store. But not in India. A resourceful thief (or a group of them) managed to swipe hardware from… an aircraft carrier under construction.

Police are currently probing the theft of a hard disk, random access memory (RAM) and processor from four computers recently installed in an Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC). The warship, the first of its kind, is currently under construction at a shipyard in Kochi, India.
The Indian Navy has downplayed the incident, saying that the stolen hardware was of no military significance. Even if no military secrets were stolen, the theft could delay the carrier’s completion. The warship is expected to enter service sometime between 2020 and 2022.
