INS Kalvari, dubbed ‘Tiger Shark’, is India’s first Scorpene submarine built indigenously under the venture named Project 75 at Mazagon Docks in Mumbai.

Earlier this week, the lethal submarine successfully test fired an Exocet 39 M missile at a decommissioned tug boat in the Arabian Sea.

 

INS Kalvari has a capacity to carry 18 torpedoes in one go and can be hidden more than 1000 km under the water.

Other state-of-the-art features include superior stealth and the ability to launch crippling attacks on enemy’s guided missiles.



This submarine can operate in all theatres of war including the tropics. Also, the hi-tech weapons and systems are controlled with superior combat management system.
