Defence Minister Arun Jaitley has said that the second Scorpene-class submarine is ready for surface sea trials.
The first Scorpene-class submarine INS Kalvari has already undergone various trials and is expected to be inducted into the Indian Navy later this year. In a tweet, Mr Jaitley congratulated engineers of Mazagon Dock Limited where the submarine has been built.
Mr Jaitley said, the Scorpene-class submarines will significantly enhance India’s naval power and strength but also make the country ocean safe and secure. Six Scorpene-class submarines are being built under Project 75 of the Navy.
