Navy commissions warship 'INS Kabra'

india Updated: Jun 08, 2011 21:40 IST

The Indian Navy commissioned latest warship "INS Kabra" at the Kochi Naval Base on Wednesday.

INS Kabra is the eighth of a series built at Garden Reach Ship Builders and Engineers (GRSE), Kolkata.

The ship, which has a crew of three officers and 39 sailors, will add edge to Indian Navy in combating low intensity conflicts and anti-piracy operations.

With a top speed of over 35 knots and maneuverability offered by her water-jet propulsion, INS Kabra is ideally suited for high-speed interdiction of fast-moving targets and useful in search and rescue operations.
