Fourth Submarine of Project-75 ‘Ins Vela’ Commissioned

Part of: Prelims 

In News: INS Vela, the fourth submarine in the series of six submarines of Project-75, was commissioned, and would form part of the Western Naval Command’s Submarine fleet and would be another potent part of its arsenal.

  • The Scorpene submarines are extremely potent platforms, they have advanced stealth features and are also equipped with both long range guided torpedoes as well as anti-ship missiles. 
  • These submarines have a state of the art SONAR and sensor suite permitting outstanding operational capabilities. 
  • They also have an advanced Permanent Magnetic Synchronous motor (PERMASYN) as its propulsion motor.
  • The delivery of Vela is yet another affirmation of the impetus being given by the Indian Navy towards consolidating its position as a ‘Builder’s Navy’ as also indicative of MDL’s capabilities as a premier ship and submarine building yard.
