New corvette commissioned.
INS Kadmatt joins Eastern Fleet
The Indian Navy achieved another milestone by commissioning INS Kadmatt, an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette, into the Eastern Fleet here on Thursday. INS Kadmatt, which is more than 90% indigenously built, is the second warship of Project 28 class and will augment the mobility, reach and flexibility of the Indian Navy.
Addressing the gathering at the Eastern Naval Command (ENC) base after commissioning the vessel built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Limited, Indian Navy Chief Admiral RK Dhowan said this marks yet another milestone in the Indian Navy’s journey toward self-reliance and the ‘Make in India’ objective. He said the ship was the proud successor of the older Petya class Kadmatt.
