Indian Navy’s Sub INS Sindhukirti Begins Final Trials

After being stuck for almost a decade at Hindustan Shipyard (HSL) in Visakhapatnam, Indian Navy’s submarine INS Sindhukirti started its final trials on Friday, June 26.

INS Sindhukirti, the Navy’s seventh Sindhughosh class diesel electric submarine, received new weapons, sonars, and fire control systems during its modernization programme.

The vessel, which was commissioned in January 1990, should join the Navy’s fleet in July.

The total cost of the modernization works was around $110m.
