    Indian Navy commissions second Kamorta-class ASW corvette

    The Indian Navy's second Project 28 (P 28) Kamorta-class anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette, INS Kadmatt (P 29), was commissioned into service at Visakhapatnam on 7 January.

    The corvette was delivered to the navy by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) on 26 November 2015.

    The P 28 corvettes, built from locally sourced DMR 249A steel, are largely fitted with licence-built weapons and sensors and indigenous combat management and fire-control systems. According to the navy, "about 90 percent" of the ship is indigenous; it is unclear, however, what metrics have been used to measure this.

    The ships' design also contains several signature management features, including an 'x'-shaped hull form to reduce radar cross-section, a raft-mounted propulsion system to reduce vibration, and an infrared signature suppression system.

    Displacing 3,500 tonnes, the 109 m-long corvettes have a top speed in excess of 25 kt and a range of 3,450 n miles. The ships' complement is 13 officers and 180 sailors.

    The ASW-focused combat system includes four heavyweight torpedo tube launchers and a pair of 12-barreled RBU6000 rocket depth-charge launchers featuring several design improvements incorporated by Larsen & Toubro. It is not known if the locally developed Mareech anti-torpedo decoy system has been installed. The fire-control system is the Bharat Electronics IAC Mod C system.

    While the ships are fitted with a Humsa-NG bow-mounted sonar, an Atlas Elektronik towed array sonar set will be fitted in due course. The navy added that the ships are also to be fitted with vertical launch surface-to-air missiles.

    The next two ships-in-class, Kiltan and Kavaratti , are currently fitting out at GRSE in Kolkata. These two ships have a composite superstructure, supplied by Sweden's Saab Kockums, designed to reduce top weight. They are likely to enter service in late 2016 and 2017.

    Re: Indian Navy commissions second Kamorta-class ASW corvette

    "The unique feature of this ship is the high level of indigenisation incorporated in the production, accentuating our national objective of 'Make in India'. About 90% of the ship is indigenous and the ship is equipped to fight in Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) warfare conditions. INS Kadmatt has many firsts to its credit which include the rail-less helo traversing system and foldable hangar door for the integral ASW helicopter," the release elaborated.

    "The ship's weapons and sensors suite is predominantly indigenous and showcases the nation's growing capability in this niche area. Some of the major equipment/ systems developed indigenously include Combat Management System, Rocket Launcher, Torpedo Tube Launchers and Infra-Red Signature Suppression System.
