Anti-submarine warfare ship launched in Kolkata | The Indian Express


The fourth and last anti-submarine warfare ship being made for the Indian Navy was launched here on Tuesday, adding a feather to the cap of domestic manufacturing for naval forces.

Kavaratti, the corvette which is 90 per cent indigenous, was launched at a glittering ceremony here.

The 3,300-tonne Kavaratti can reach a speed of over 25 knots. An X-shaped hull, full beam superstructure, inclined ship sides and an Infra Red Signature Suppression (IRSS) system increase the stealth feature of the ship.

Navy officials said the weapons systems on the ship were largely indigenous.

The . . . ships also have Total Atmospheric Control System (TACS), capable of fighting in nuclear, biological and chemical warfare conditions.
