The Indian Navy's fifth Kalvari class submarine named Vagir began her sea trials on Tuesday.
According to the Indian Navy, the submarine was launched in November 2020 from the Kanhoji Angre Wet Basin of Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL).
Despite the COVID pandemic, MDL has delivered two submarines of Project - 75 in the year 2021 and the commencement of sea trials of the fifth submarine is a significant milestone.
The submarine will now undergo intense trials of all its systems at sea, including propulsion systems, weapons and sensors. The submarine is scheduled for delivery to the Indian Navy later this year after the completion of these trials.
