INS Visakhapatnam to be commissioned in Mumbai by Indian Navy

The Indian Navy’s firepower is going to get a boost with a new warship and a submarine that are set to be commissioned this month. INS Visakhapatnam is an indigenous stealth-guided missile destroyer and submarine INS Vela, also made in India, will be commissioned in Mumbai on November 21 and 24 respectively. Defence minister Rajnath Singh will be attending the commissioning ceremony

INS Visakhapatnam, which is the first of the four Project 15B class destroyers, has been indigenously designed by the Indian Navy’s in-house organisation, Directorate of Naval Design and constructed by Mazagon Dock Limited, Mumbai.

The total cost of the Project 15B would be around Rs 35,000 crore. The contract for the project was signed in 2011.

The latest additions to the Indian Navy come as the force is ramping up its capabilities for the emerging challenges including China’s increased presence in the Indian Ocean region.

Vice Admiral Ghormade added that commissioning of ‘Visakhapatnam’ and ‘Vela’ are major milestones showcasing the indigenous capacity to build complex combat platforms.
