In a major boost to its firepower, the Indian Navy is all set to commission the all-new INS Vela which will be fourth of the six Stealth Scorpene Class Submarines.

Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh will commission the submarine into operational service in Mumbai's Noval Dockyard on Nov 25.

Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Ltd (MDL) in collaboration with M/s Naval Group of France manufactured the submarine which was delivered to the Indian Navy as part of Project P-7.

β€œThe main battery onboard INS Vela is completely indigenously built in the era of self-reliant India,” INS Vela Commanding Officer Captain Anish Mathew said.

Vela submarine was launched on May 6, 2019, and has completed all major harbour and sea trials, including weapon and sensor trials despite Covid restrictions. Out of the six submarines, the MDL has delivered three submarines β€” Kalvari, Khanderi, Karanj β€” already in commission with the Indian Navy.
