New Delhi: Enhancing further the war making capability of the Indian Navy, INS Astradharini joined the fleet on Tuesday.
The vessel will be used to carry out technical trials of underwater weapons and systems developed by Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL), a Naval Systems laboratory of DRDO. Astradharini is a replacement vessel of the erstwhile Astravahini.
Earlier last month, the Indian Navy had also commissioned INS Kochi, the largest India-made warship. INS Kochi is the Indian Navy’s second warship with multi-function surveillance and threat alert radar.
