Indian Navy stealth submarines to give Pakistan a 'much bigger blow', It seems Feb 27 for Indian Navy is near
New Delhi: Indian Navy stealth submarines to give Pakistan a 'much bigger blow', Indian defence ministry Rajnath Singh has warned Pakistan.
It seems Feb 27 for Indian Navy is near. On February 27, 2019 Pakistan Air Force shot down two Indian Air Force fighter jets trying to give Pakistan a blow.
Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, who on Saturday commissioned India's second Scorpene-class attack submarine INS Khanderi, slammed Pakistan, saying that the neighbour should be wary of the recent additions to our naval capacity as with them we could deliver them a bigger blow.
"Pakistan should understand that today with the strong resolve of our government and advancement in naval capacity with additions like INS Khanderi, we are capable of giving a much bigger blow to it," Singh said at the event in Mumbai.
Khanderi has been named after the wide-snouted Sawfish, a deadly predator of the Indian Ocean, and on Saturday, it became the 17th submarine of the Indian Navy. The state-of-the-art features of this Scorpene class submarine include superior stealth and the ability to launch a crippling attack on the enemy using precision-guided weapons.
"The name Khanderi is inspired by the dreaded 'Sword Tooth Fish'. Khanderi is also the name of an island fort constructed by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. He was one of the few medieval rulers in the country who understood the significance of Naval supremacy," the Defence Minister said.
"Our government is alert to the needs of our defence forces and we are committed to fulfilling it," he added.
