Mormugao belongs to the class of Project 15-B destroyers, the most advanced built in India.

NEW DELHI: India's latest destroyer, the Mormugao, is set to be launched for the first time on Saturday at Mumbai's Mazgaon Docks. The ship will then be fitted out and inducted into the Navy two years later.

The Mormugao is the second of a class of Project 15-B destroyers -- slated to be the most advanced destroyers built in India. Four are being built at a cost of Rs. 29,700 crore.


With displacement of 7,300 tonnes, the Mormugao spans 163 metres in length and is powered by 4 Ukrainian gas turbine engines to achieve speeds in excess of 30 knots, approximately 56 km per hour.

With a complement of 50 officers and 250 sailors, the Project 15B destroyers are designed to operate 4,000 nautical miles at sea.

According the Navy, "These ships are among the most technologically advanced guided missile destroyers in the world, with state-of-the-art weapons/sensors package, advanced stealth features and a high degree of automation."

The Mormugao will be able to fire Barak Surface to Air and BrahMos missiles.

The key sensor of the Mormugao will be its Israeli-designed Multi-Function Surveillance Threat Alert Radar (MF-STAR), designed to track targets in the air hundreds of kilometres away.

Once a lock-on is achieved, the MF-STAR can direct several Barak 8 Long-Range Surface to Air missiles (LR-SAM) to intercept the targets. The LR-SAM is a joint venture between India and Israel and is considered among the most sophisticated missiles of its class in the world being designed to intercept enemy aircraft and supersonic missiles more than 70 km away.

The Mormugao is also armed with the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, which can hit targets at land and at sea 300 km away.

All key systems are integrated onboard the ship through a Ship Data Network, a Combat Management System, an Automated Power Management System among a host of computer controlled systems, which monitor every parameter of the ship's operations. In fact, the Navy describes the new destroyers as a true "Network of Networks, representing a high level of automation for monitoring and control of various shipboard systems that would be integrated into the ship."

The 73,00 tonne destroyer will house 50 officers and 250 sailors.

The Navy is aiming for a 68% indigenisation target for the Project 15-B class. The other components are being imported and integrated by Mazgaon Docks Limited.

Compared to the Navy's Project 15-A destroyers, which are now entering service, the Project 15B ships will be less detectable by radar, use radar absorbent paint during its construction and its propellers will be more silent to make detection by enemy submarines and warships more difficult.

In the last 6 years, the Indian Navy has inducted 8 frontline warships and has launched 5 warships which are in the process of being constructed.

The slides you’re looking at here happen to be the first officially-released schematics on theProject 15 Bravo stealth destroyers under build for the Indian Navy. The Directorate of Naval Design (DND), which briefed reporters today about the launch of the second vessel in the class, Mormugao, has provided the first detailed look at the P15B, christened the Visakhapatnam class, as first reported by Livefist last year. Livefist had scooped the first image of the lead of the class.

The Visakhapatnam-class represents a terrific step ahead for Indian shipbuilding and establishes once again the country’s prowess in designing, developing, building and fielding frontline surface combatants. More on the class and the 39 other ships being build across the country for the Indian Navy soon.

Ohhhhh my god . What a ship. I hope that it will have the better than the best weapons like kolkatta class and in making vishakhapattanam class. Mini Brahmos mach 3.5 (verticle dive career killer. ) Ex sam of 150+ kh of range, Maitri or improved Barak 8, torpedo decoy and great EW.

I hear each ship is costing over one billion dollars..each..

But these are so powerful they could take on most of the neighbours navies single handedly

No ship can survive by going to war with her. It will have 36 brahmos if i am not wrong. And not more than one is needed for any ship for our enemies.

16 brahmos, in future it may change as brahmos ng with half the weight and more speed.
It will have improved barak 8 (90+ km range instead of 70) or barak 8er with 150 km range.
maitri and barak 8 are entirely different class(qrsam vs lrsam).
afaik kolkata dont have barak 1( as barak 8 covers the range with .5km), so visakha won't have maitri either.

73,000 ton destroyer!
On the ndtv site it was 73000:p:, here i corrected it.

There are lots of conflicting information, and here is what the shipyard said a couple of months ago:

"Tuesday, the CAG said the already long-delayed 40,000-tonne indigenous aircraft carrier, INS Vikrant , will be ready only by 2023 as per its constructor Cochin Shipyard"

INS Vikrant Due To Be Inducted By December 2018, Says Navy Chief Sunil Lanba

http://newsworldindia.in/india/othe...mber-2018-says-navy-chief-sunil-lanba/212956/

80 % of the Work is completed on INS Vikrant Its Sheer Stupidity To Say It will 8 years to induct Like @Abingdonboy Said it Will be Get to sea Trials by 2018
