Second Scorpene To Be Launched 10 January, 2017

India will launch the second Scorpene submarine, INS Khanderi, on January 12 at the Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL) in Mumbai. Despite the data leak came off last year, Indian government decided to proceed with the project without any modification in the vessel’s parameters. MDL stated that the second submarine would undergo both harbor and sea trials by the end of 2017. Under a $3.46 billion technology transfer contract signed in 2005 six submarines are being built in collaboration with DCNS of France.
