Rajnath Singh launches two warships to boost naval might

Both the ships have been designed in-house by the Directorate of Naval Design, which has been the fountainhead for all warship design activities of the nation.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday launched two frontline warships of the Indian Navy namely- Indian Navy Ship Surat and Indian Navy Ship Udaygiri, at Mazgaon Docks Limited in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, Surat is the fourth of Project 15B and amongst the largest destroyer ships manufactured by India whereas Udaygiri is the third ship under Project 17A Frigates equipped with advanced weapons, sensors, and platform management systems.

It may be mentioned here that Udaygiri is a reincarnation of a previous edition of Udaygiri, which saw numerous challenging operations in its service of three decades in 2007.

Both the ships have been designed in-house by the Directorate of Naval Design, which has been the fountainhead for all warship design activities of the nation.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh in his speech during the launching ceremony said, “After a successful launch of INS Udaygiri and INS Surat, there’s no doubt we’ll do shipbuilding, not only for India but also for the world. We will not just aim for Make-In-India but also Make-for-World”.
