INS VAGSHEER was launched today by the Defence Secretary of India, Dr Ajay Kumar, Naval Group, writes in a press release.


INS VAGSHEER is the last of the six P75 SCORPENE class submarines entirely built by Indian Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL). This was based on technology transfer and partnership with Naval Group. INS VAGSHEER is the last of the series of six KALVARI-class submarines ordered by India in 2005. MDL teams will have to complete the integration and setting to work the equipment and machinery on board before beginning the sea trials, including weapon and sensor trials. The series of six submarines are fitted with several pieces of equipment built in India by industrial Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.


According to Naval Group, the French company and MDL have created an industrial ecosystem of more than 50 Indian companies, with future projects ranging from submarines to space exploration.
