On Thursday India take one step ahead on its way of Make in India. On Thursday (21-09-2017) as the first of the six Scorpene-class submarines, being built in India as part of technology transfer from France was delivered to the Indian Navy. This submarine is named as Kalvari. Kalvari is first of the six Scorpene class submarines being built under Project-75 by Mazagon Docks Ltd. with technology transfer from DCNS, a French naval shipbuilder. Sources said that this submarine has been transferred and soon in October it will be there in Arabian Sea.
This submarine is named after the dreaded deep sea predator Tiger Shark. Sources said that this is one of the most powerful submarines in Indian Navy. It took a lot of time to be build but will prove a blessing for security forces. INS Kalvari is the first indigenously built submarine in 22 years. It will act as a force multiplier for the Navy by launching massive attacks through precision guided weapons having range of 12,000 km, allowing for a wide area of operation.
It has superior stealth features which make it more powerful. It has various features which can destroy enemy very easily. It can launch torpedoes as well as it can launch anti-ship missiles above and blew sea surface. It can dive deeper in water because of its design and the special steel which used to construct it. It can use for mine lying, for anti-sub warfare and for intelligence gathering.
It has one more very important feature which will help Indian Navy that is its advanced acoustic silencing technique. It has very low radiated noise which will help this submarine from enemy’s point of target. It’s been so hard for enemy to locate INS Kalvari. It has a ability to launch a continues attacks on enemy which can make them cripple, with its precious weapons.
There is a proposal of six submarines as this 1st one has been transferred. But this project has gone through so many delays. All the six submarines were to be handed over between 2012 to 2015. But because of some much hidden reasons and leak of data lead this project to almost five years delay. Although there are some delays but as these submarines will enter in Indian Navy, they will increase the power of navy.
India is heading towards its dream of Make in India. This submarine is one the fine example for it. Like this soon India will attain all its dreams and become totally independent in itself. Three main security forces are getting new weapons and techniques day by day. Soon the time will come when India have no fear from anyone.
