    For a ship of this displacement, it seems to be lightly armed. Apart from 16 VLS Anti-ship/Land attack Brahmos, there should have been space for 24 1000-1500Km Nirbhay LACMs.

    Just one of these ships if parked off the shores of a nation should be able to send shivers down the enemy's spine, by virtue of the sheer firepower it could deploy.

    What a Beautiful ship.

    The stealth features seem to be in the league of the Shivalik Class, and better than the Talwar and certainly much better than the Delhi class.

    Kolkata and Kochi. What is the third one called?

    pontoon-assisted launch will allow 50% completed ship to be launched unlike 30% in the past. So INS Kochi will be just over 3000 tons at launch.

    although the destroyer is impressive can it counter the threat from the pakistani navy's AGOSTA-90b's torpedoes ????

    also this destroyer will be blown apart if it dares to come anywhere near the U-214 of pakistan

    Pakistan doesn't have U-214's and Agostas are inferior to Indias Scorpenes.

    Just becuase Agostas have AIPS, doesnt make them lethal, since almost all Indias subs have AIPS.

    Seriously, INS Kolkata has still not been commissioned. I really hope we accelerate the pace of launch and commissioning of the three Kolkata class destroyers

    MDL has just one wet basin which was thus far occupied by 3 P17 frigates. Now that I think 2 P17 frigates are out on testing, INS Kolkata and INS Kochi will finally get a birth in the wet basin for fitting out. INS Kochi which will get a pontoon-assisted launch and is 50% complete is probably more ready than INS Kolkata which was launched 30% complete and has been just waiting since then.

    Building 8-9 destroyers/frigates
    every 10 years is not enough.We should have a fleet of at least 40-50 of these type of ships.
