Indian Navy Submarines in Russia

The contract for Indian Navy Submarines Sindhukesari’s repairs and upgradation work was signed in 2015 which was to be completed in twenty-seven months. INS Sindhukesari became the sixth Russian-built submarine undergoing refurbishments at the Zvyozdochka Shipyard. Earlier, the Severodvinsk-based centre with expertise in servicing and decommissioning of nuclear submarines refurbished five diesel-electric Indian Navy Submarines since 1997 which includes INS Sindhuvir, INS Sindhuratna, INS Sindhugosh, INS Sindhuvijay and INS Sindhurakshak.

Is JF-17 Thunder Fighter Jet a Better Choice than HAL Tejas?

The Sindhuraj was laid down at the Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard in 1985 on request from the Indian Government. In 1987, the submarine entered service with the Indian Navy. The Admiralty Shipyard was also responsible for medium repairs of this INS Sindhuraj. In 2017, INS Sindhuraj was delivered to the Zvyozdochka Shipyard for the second medium repairs.
