India’s first indigenous purpose-built stealth frigate, INS Shivalik gets commissioned next month. That’s going to be something major to watch out for.
Project 15A Destroyer INS Chennai To Be Launched Thursday
INS Chennai, the third of the Project 15A Indian-designed and built guided missile destroyers will be launched this Thursday at the Mazagon docks in Mumbai. The Chennai follows the Kolkata and the Kochi, which was launched last year. I was born and went to school in good old Madras (I still haven’t gotten round to calling it Chennai) — it’s still home in many ways. Nice to see they’ve named a big mean hunk of metal out of my city.
