    The Indian Navy’s INS Sindhukirti to undergo final trials before officially re-entering into service with the Indian Navy next month.

    Indian Navy’s INS Sindhukirti will enter its final full-power trials after a decade-long renovation process.

    The attack submarine will officially return into service with the Indian Navy next month, providing a much-needed advantage to India’s limited submarine force.

    Sindhukirti is the seventh Sindhughosh-class (Indian name for the Russian Kilo-class) diesel-electric attack submarine in the Indian Navy, which was originally commissioned in 1990. The Sindhukirti entered its upgrade process back in 2006.

    India’s Sindhughosh-class submarines were co-developed between India and Russia’s Rosvooruzhenie. The Sindhukirti's restoration involved extensive modernization.

    The Indian government recently cleared an added $8 billion in funding for naval modernization, part of which will go to the construction of six additional nuclear submarines.
