Vice Admiral Girish Luthra, Flag commanding officer of the Western Naval Command said today, “Kalvari is likely to be commissioned this month after extensive sea trials ”. He further added, “Kalvari underwent around 3 months extensive sea trials and tests for equipment”.
The Kalvari is named after the dreaded Tiger shark, a deadly deep predator of the Indian ocean. INS Kalvari was first ever commissioned on 8 December 1967 and then it served Indian Navy for 3 decades with proud and honor and then de-commissioned on 31 may 1996.
“The vessel provides strength to India’s Maritime power, ” The senior navy officer said. Also, an MDL officer said, “This Scorpene is well furnished with advanced stealth features such as low radiated noise levels and advanced acoustic silencing techniques.“
These features that the officers are discussing will provide this submarine a better penetrating power and also the best firing range.
The recommissioning of this submarine will provide strength to the Indian Naval force. The major reason for the construction of the submarine is to provide a base for the naval battalion to fight with the enemy. This was an important step in strengthening the naval power of country like India.
