    Indian Navy’s largest and heaviest
    indigenously built warship INS
    Visakhapatanam-class destroyer is ready to
    launch.
    Visakhapatanam (Project-15B) has followed
    the INS Kolkata class (Project-15A), built by
    the Mazagaon Dockyard Limited (MDL) more
    advanced than Kolkata class.
    This is first ship in a total of four warships of
    Project 15B that is likely to be named as INS
    Visakhapatanam during the launching
    ceremony scheduled for next Monday at MDL.
    After the completion of successful trials of
    harbour acceptance and sea trials which
    lasted for several months, the warship will be
    commissioned into the Indian Navy.

    All About the INS Visakhapatnam, Navy's Most Powerful Destroyer

    Kolkata-class is 7500 ton, how come Visakhapatnam is heavier if NDTV is right?

    7500 tons is full load for Kolkata class. 7300 tons is either empty weight or standard displacement.


    Cutting the time from keel laying to launch has been reduced significantly. From 3-4 years in Kolkata class to just over a year in this one. Let's hope they complete the ship in decent time frame.

    Good to see ships are being inducted on regular basis by the IN.

    The next series should be heavier than this one, close to around 10,000 ton displacement.

    @SREEKAR, thank you for the thread. It is better to include a link or give credit if the content is not your original content, and this is very important for opening posts.

    Visakhapatnam class destroyers consists only 4x8=32cell barak sam's and 16cell anti-ship missiles only?
    US destroyers have 96 cell sam's system.

    You get what you can afford or deserve. Please compare US navy vs Indian navy budget.

    Doesn't mean when your friend gets a beautiful wife so you too should get same :)

    Will Project-15B continue to be called "Kolkata-class" or "Visakhapatnam-class" ?

    Afford: Indian Navy budget
    Deserve: Indian R&D and the non existence of Indian companies capable of making state of the art SAM systems
    Beautiful wife: Simple analogy. Hey who does not want a good pair of t!ts at home :)

    So the other Project-15B ships are INS Porbandar and INS Mormugao. Zee News is running a nice program on INS Vizag right now.

    Minor changes in Visakhapatnam compare to Kolakata, I presume the engines are perhaps American rather than Ukrainian as we manufacture American gas turbine engines under license ..
