The first indigenously built stealth anti-submarine warfare corvette INS Kamorta was commissioned by defence minister Arun Jaitley at the Naval dockyard Visakhapatnam on Saturday.

Kamorta, a frontline warship with an array of anti-submarine warfare, anti-air and anti-surface weapons and sensors, is the first of four ASW stealth corvettes designed by Indian Navy's in-house organisation, Directorate of Naval Design (DND).

It would carry short-range Surface-to-Air missiles (SAM) and Active Towed Array Decoy System (ATDS).

It can also carry an integral ASW helicopter.
