Indian Navy on Monday commissioned the fifth Kalvari class submarine Vagir at the naval dockyard in Mumbai in presence of Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral R Hari Kumar.

The newly commissioned submarine took her maiden sea sortie in February last year, marking the commencement of sea trials. The submarine has gone through a series of comprehensive acceptance checks and, stringent and demanding sea trials before its commissioning, according to the defence ministry.

Speaking at the event, Admiral R Hari Kumar said Vagir is a lethal platform with a formidable weapon package.

Highlighting that Vagir was the third submarine inducted into the Indian Navy in a span of 24 months, the Chief of Naval Staff said it was a shining testimony to the expertise of India’s shipyards to construct complex and complicated platforms.
