Ins Vela: Indian Navy’s Fourth Scorpene-class Submarine Commissioned, Vela Has The Ability To Undertake An Entire Spectrum Of Submarine Operations – Ins Vela

Summary

When China is continuously increasing its submarine strength in the maritime sector. China is also increasing its submarine power so that it can easily spy on the Indian Ocean and threaten countries with which it is having border disputes. At such a time, Vela’s arrival will enhance India’s security capability in the strategically important maritime region.

China, showing its arrogance from the South China Sea to Ladakh, is also increasing the strength of its navy. Several lethal submarines are being inducted into the Chinese Navy’s fleet. At such a time, India has also included the submarine INS Vela in service, increasing its naval power. It was received by Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh at the Naval Dockyard on Thursday. The Indian Navy is to induct a total of six submarines under the Kalvari class submarine Project-75.

INS Vela is the fourth submarine of this class inducted into service. It has been inducted into the Navy’s fleet after a two-year trial. The Navy will conduct several rounds of trials before inducting this submarine into the defense fleet. Earlier, the Navy had commissioned the warship INS Visakhapatnam on 21 November. Thus the Navy has achieved two ‘accomplishments’ in the form of INS Vela after INS Visakhapatnam in a week.

China’s eyes on the Indian Ocean
Experts say that after dominating the South China Sea, now China’s eyes are on the Indian Ocean. So India needs to be very cautious. Because China is rapidly increasing its ability to fight wars outside the South China Sea. This has created more danger for countries like India because we have a border dispute with China. Realizing this, on the occasion of INS Vela joining the Indian Navy’s fleet, Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh said that we are closely watching the alliance between China and Pakistan. He said that a lot of weapons are being exported from China to Pakistan. This will make a big difference to the regional security here. For this we have to be careful.

How did the name Vela get
Vela is named after a decommissioned submarine, Vela. Who served in the Navy from 1973 to 2010. It had rendered important service to the nation for about 37 years.

where was the construction
The submarine has been built by Mumbai-based Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited in collaboration with France’s M/s Naval Group. The company had signed a contract with the French company for the construction and technology transfer of six Scorpene-class submarines. Prior to Vela, MDL Kalvari, Khanderi and Karanj submarines have been launched. Sea trials are underway for the fifth submarine Vagir, while the sixth submarine Vagir is under construction. It is being told that 35 people including eight officers can sit in this submarine.
What is Project 75?
The IK Gujral government had decided to acquire 25 submarines. It took 30 years to build the P75 submarines. In 2005, India and France signed a $3.75 billion contract to build six Scorpene-class submarines. Mazagon Docks Shipbuilders Limited in India and DCNS in France look after its work. The first of the six, INS Kalvari, was commissioned in 2017 five years behind schedule.

Navy’s capability will increase
The induction of the submarine INS Vela into the Navy will enhance the capability of the Navy. Vela will be inducted into the Western Command of the Indian Navy and will be based in Mumbai. It is 221 feet long, 40 feet high and weighs 1565 tons. It is a diesel-electric powered attack submarine. Its specialty is that it cannot be tracked by radar. It will remain hidden from the eyes of the enemy, but can get rid of the enemy’s sixes. The Navy said the new ‘Vela’ is powerful and will be capable of offensive operations across the entire spectrum of maritime warfare. The submarine is equipped with the C303 anti torpedo countermeasure system. It can do the work of mine laying and area surveillance etc. It can also locate the enemy by going up to a depth of 350 meters. INS Vela is equipped with state-of-the-art weapons, which can easily deliver sixes of enemies during the war.
