The fourth submarine of Project 75, Yard 11878 was delivered to the #IndianNavy on 09 November 2021.
Project 75 includes construction of six submarines of Scorpene design. These submarines are being constructed at Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited #MDL, under collaboration with M/s Naval Group, France.
Christened ‘Vela’, the submarine was launched on 06 May 2019, and has completed all major harbor and sea trials including weapon and sensor trials despite #COVID restrictions. Three of these submarines are already in commission in the Indian Navy.
Submarine construction is an intricate activity as the difficulty is compounded when all equipment is required to be miniaturized and are subject to stringent quality requirements.
