Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

I can see where MDL is going to build four P-17A once they are done with P-15B, but pardon me, GRSE looks so tiny and with no space to expand, they can probably build only single ship of that size at a time. How the hell one can expect seven ships ready by 2027???

Perhaps, you should have another look at nam's picture which clearly shows yard number 12704 on the ship behind Vela. You even have the last letters of the name Vishakapatnam visible on the banner.

Visakhapatnam was launched exactly 4 years ago, given that the design is only marginally different from P-15A, this is slow.
