Chinese Media On India testfiring anti-ship missile from submarine

India on Thursday testfired an anti-ship missile from its first Scorpene-class stealth submarine INS Kalvari.

The Indian Defense Ministry said that the anti-ship missile, which was fired from home-made INS Kalvari, successfully hit a surface target at an extended range during the trial.

“This missile launch is a significant milestone, not only for the Kalvari, which is the first in a series of Scorpene-class submarines being built in India, but also in enhancing the Indian Navy’s sub-surface warfare capability,” the ministry said.

INS Kalvari is the first of the Indian Navy’s six Scorpene-class stealth submarines which are designed by France’s DCNS and being manufactured at state-owned Mazagon Dock Limited in Mumbai.

These submarines will be equipped with this anti-ship missile, which has a proven record in combat. These missiles will provide the submarines the ability to neutralise surface threats at extended ranges.

This is another achievement for India’s defence forces after a successful testing of interceptor missile on Wednesday.
“All six Kalvari-class submarines being built in India will be equipped with this anti-ship missile, which has a proven record in combat. These missiles will provide the submarines the ability to neutralize surface threats at extended ranges,” the ministry said.
