Indian Navy Launches Stealth Destroyer INS Kochi

Adding more fire to the seas, the Indian Navy on Friday launched INS Kochi, the country’s second indigenously designed stealth destroyer.

Contoured by the Directorate of Naval Design, INS Kochi adds to the existing Delhi class fleet comprising INS Delhi, INS Mysore and INS Mumbai, according to a press release.

The destroyer packs advanced stealth features that make it less vulnerable to detection by enemy radar and a weapons system that includes the nuclear capable supersonic BrahMos surface-to-surface missile and Long Range Surface-to-Air missiles, the release said.

The 163-meter long and 6,800-ton stealth destroyer was launched by Navy Chief Admiral Nirmal Verma’s wife Madhulika Verma.
