Indian Navy Launches Anti-Submarine Warfare Ship

The Indian Navy obtained the ASW-SWC Amini (P75), an Arnala-class anti-submarine corvette, in a ceremony at Kattupalli Port in Chennai.

The ship is anticipated to conduct subsurface missions, low-intensity maritime operations, and mine-laying duties.

Arnala-class ships will substitute the navy’s ASW-SWC Abhay (P33), in service since 1989.

The Amini is the fourth of eight scheduled anti-submarine warfare shallow water craft (ASW-SWC) constructed and delivered by shipbuilding firm Backyard Attain Shipbuilders & Engineers. The contract for the eight vessels, signed in 2019, was valued at 63 billion rupees ($760 million).

A Native Powerhouse

ASW-SWC Amini has a size of 77 meters (253 toes) and a displacement of 900 tons, in a position to attain a most velocity of 25 knots (29 miles per hour) and an endurance of roughly 1,800 nautical miles (2,100 miles).

Its main anti-submarine weapons embody light-weight torpedoes and rockets, together with a fight administration system. Moreover, the ship has two 12.7-millimeter stabilized distant management weapons with optronic management methods.

The Arnala-class ships have been constructed as a part of the nation’s Make in India initiative, which ensures that large-scale protection manufacturing is executed by Indian manufacturing models, supporting native employment and functionality enhancement.

Over 80 p.c of the supplies used to construct the corvettes have been regionally sourced.
