SP's NavalForces - - FRONT PAGE -

The Sub­ma­rine Arm of the in­dian navy has been at the van­guard of the na­tionõs mar­itime de­fence ever since the first Sub­ma­rine INS Kal­vari was com­mis­sioned into the Navy on 08 Dec 1967. Sub­marines since then have evolved into an im­por­tant pil­lar of de­ter­rence in the mar­itime do­main. The Golden Ju­bilee of the In­dian Navy’s Sub­ma­rine Arm is a his­toric event be­ing cel­e­brated in 2017.

The voy­age of the last fifty years has been chal­leng­ing, not only whilst nav­i­gat­ing the en­vi­rons on the deep seas, but also in in­duct­ing new tech­nolo­gies to meet the fu­ture chal­lenges of un­der­sea war­fare. The jour­ney has been one of for­ti­tude and valour; the way ahead well-con­ceived and ac­com­plished. I am glad that the SP’s is pub­lish­ing a spe­cial is­sue on this oc­ca­sion. I take this op­por­tu­nity to wish the Sub­mariners, both vet­er­ans and serv­ing, fond mem­o­ries, good luck and happy hunt­ing. (Su­nil lanba) Ad­mi­ral Chief of the naval Staff
