INS Kalvari

On March 02, Indian Navy successfully conducted the maiden firing of an anti-ship missile from the first of the indigenously built Kalvari class submarines, during a test firing in the Arabian Sea.

“The missile successfully hit a surface target at extended ranges during the trial firing, held this morning. This missile launch is a significant milestone, not only for the Kalvari, which is the first in a series of Scorpene class submarines being built in India, but also in enhancing the Indian Navy’s sub-surface warfare capability”, said a navy statement after the firing.

All six Kalvari class submarines being built in India will be equipped with this anti-ship missile, which has a proven record in combat. These missiles will provide the submarines the ability to neutralise surface threats at extended ranges.
