    The Indian Navy on Saturday asserted that in the core of India Navy’s progressive vision was the ‘Make in India’ campaign and the naval warship ‘INS Chennai’, P-15A Guided Missile Destroyer, which was equipped to fight under Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare conditions and today arrived here as part of her maiden visit to Chennai, was an example of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intiative.

    “This ship is an example of Make in India. It is 163 m long , got latest weapons, ward off threats from air and sub surface. It will be placed under the operational and administrative control of the Western Naval Command,” Flag Officer of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry Naval Area Rear Admiral Alok Bhatnagar told ANI.

    The ship, commissioned into the Indian Navy in November last year, was a part of the Western Fleet under the administrative control of the Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Western Naval Command, and Mumbai.

    INS Chennai would be anchored off Marina beach from 5 p.m. to 11.30 p.m. this evening to enable the people of Chennai to have a glimpse of the frontline warship of the Indian Navy named after the port city.

    With a displacement of 7,500 tonnes, this ship is was one of the most potent warships to have been constructed in India.

    The ship was propelled by four powerful gas turbines, in a Combined Gas and Gas (COCAG) configuration, capable of achieving speeds in excess of 30 knots.

    INS Chennai is packed with contemporary and sophisticated ‘state of the art’ weapons and sensors such as Surface to Surface Missile and Surface to Air Missiles.

    The ship is fitted with a modern Surveillance Radar which provides target data to the gunnery weapon systems of the ship. It’s Anti Submarine Warfare capabilities are provided by the indigenously developed Rocket Launchers and Torpedo Launchers.

    I am sorry, not trying to troll or be insulting just because it is an enemy warship, but the hull does not look too impressive to me. The beam seems too wide for a destroyer, and the hull is shaped much like a typical Indian/Pakistani fishing boat!

    Maybe, the systems are good? :undecided:

    Homemade rusty bucket is still better then imported stuff. It leads to developing base for future.
