Fifth Kalvari class submarine INS Vagir to be inducted into Indian Navy

News

The fifth Kalvari class submarine INS Vagir will be inducted into Indian Navy today, January 23.

The submarine, built in India by Mumbai’s Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited in collaboration with France-based Naval Group, will be commissioned by Chief of the Naval Staff, Admiral R Hari Kumar. Vagir has the distinction of having the lowest build time among all indigenously manufactured submarines to date.

Vagir will boost Indian Navy’s capabilities as it is capable of undertaking diverse missions including anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, intelligence gathering, mine laying, and surveillance missions. Vagir is named after Sand Shark, which represents ‘Stealth and Fearlessness’, two qualities that are synonymous with the ethos of a submariner. (AIR NEWS)
