The first indigenously built stealth anti-submarine warfare corvette ‘INS Kamorta’ was commissioned by Defence Minister Arun Jaitley at the Naval dockyard, Vishakapatnam on Saturday.
Kamorta, a frontline warship with an array of anti-submarine warfare, anti-air and anti-surface weapons and sensors, is the first of four ASW stealth corvettes designed by Indian Navy’s in-house organisation, Directorate of Naval Design (DND).
It would carry short-range Surface-to-Air missiles (SAM) and Active Towed Array Decoy System (ATDS). It can also carry an integral ASW helicopter.
