INS Khanderi was launched at the Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) in Mumbai on January 12, 2017 and since then it has been undergoing trials and tests.

INS Khanderi

The INS Khanderi is a part of Project 75 of Indian Navy. The submarine includes superior stealth, which may provide invulnerability to it.

It is capable of launching attack on the enemy using precision guided weapons.

It can undertake diverse types of missions including anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, mine laying, intelligence gathering and area surveillance among others.

It also carries the ability to launch attacks with torpedoes and tube-launched anti-ship missiles, while being on the surface or underwater.

What is Scorpene Class Submarine?

The Scorpene Class Submarines are designed by French naval defence company ‘DCNS’ and are being manufactured by Mazagon Dock Limited in Mumbai.

India purchased six submarines for USD 3 billion under Project 75 in 2005.

INS Kalvari, the first of the Scorpene-class submarines, was commissioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 14, 2017.

The third Scorpene-class submarine, INS Karanj was launched by the Indian Navy on January 31, 2018 and is in the advanced stage of trials.
