Rajnath Singh Provides Indian Navy The Missile Destroyer INS Mormugao

On Sunday in Mumbai, the P15B stealth-guided missile destroyer INS Mormugao was put into service with the Indian Navy. Defense minister Rajnath Singh, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Anil Chauhan, Navy chief Admiral R Hari Kumar, and other important people were there when INS Mormugao was given its official name.

The ship is 163 metres long and 17 metres wide. When it is fully loaded, it can carry 7400 tonnes and can go as fast as 30 knots. The destroyer has a lot of indigenous equipment in the “Float” and “Move” categories. It also has the major indigenous weapons listed below. About 75% of the project is made up of things made by indigenous people.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said at the event that the INS Mormugao will make a big difference in India’s naval power and is one of the most powerful warships made in India. Rajnath Singh said, “The INS Mormugao is one of the most high-tech missile carriers in the world.”

“The INS Mormugao’s systems will be able to meet not only present needs but also those of the future. It’s also an example of how we can make our own weapons for defence. In the future, we’ll build ships for people all over the world,” he said.

Mormugao’s keel was set in June 2015, and the ship was put into service on September 17, 2016. Most of the design has stayed the same, including the shape of the hull, the way it moves, a lot of the platform equipment, and the main weapons and sensors.
