India’s second Scorpene-class submarine starts sea trials

Future INS Khanderi, Indian Navy’s second Scorpene-class submarine, started her sea trials on June 1, leaving the Mumbai harbor for the first time.

Khanderi is the second of overall six boats to be built by Magazon Dock Limited in cooperation with French submarine designer DCNS.

During her maiden sea voyage, the submarine tested her propulsion plant during a test that brought her one step closer to joining the Indian Navy.

The submarine is set for further tests before she is inducted into the navy later this year.

The first Scorpene, Kalvari, is presently being readied for delivery in July/August this year, after completing live missile and torpedo firings.
