Indian Navy Commissions 5th Class Kalvari Submarine Vagir On Monday

In the presence of Admiral R. Hari Kumar, Chief of the Naval Staff, the Indian Navy on Monday commissioned Vagir, the fifth submarine of the Kalvari class, at the naval dockyard in Mumbai. Sea trials for the recently commissioned submarine got underway in February of last year with her first sea sortie. Before being commissioned, the submarine underwent a number of thorough acceptance inspections as well as rigorous and arduous sea testing, according to the military ministry.

Admiral R. Hari Kumar stated during the event that Vagir is a deadly platform with a strong armament suite. The Chief of Naval Staff stated the fact that Vagir was the third submarine added to the Indian Navy in less than 24 months was a shining example of the country’s shipyards’ ability to build sophisticated platforms.

In partnership with Naval Group, France, Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) Mumbai is producing the Kalvari class submarines in India.

Vagir is capable of carrying out a variety of tasks, such as mine laying, anti-surface warfare, intelligence collection, and observation operations.

The submarine of the same name, Vagir, was commissioned in November 1973 and carried out a wide range of operational operations, including deterrent patrols. In January 2001, it was decommissioned after over three decades of service to the country. The distinction of having the shortest build period among all submarines produced domestically to date belongs to Vagir in its new guise.

Old ships and submarines never die in the navy; it’s a long-standing custom. The submarine in front of us is a rebirth of the former Vagir, which served India and the Indian Navy for three decades, in keeping with the spirit, Admiral Kumar stated.

The Sand Fish, a dangerous deep-water predator of the Indian Ocean, gives Vagir its name.
