Vindhyagiri, the sixth ship of the Project 17A Frigates, is named after a mountain range in Karnataka. The Project 17 Class Frigates (Shivalik Class) were followed by these warships, which had platform management systems, better stealth characteristics, and cutting-edge armaments and sensors.<br />
The technologically sophisticated Frigate “Vindhyagiri” honors the valiant service of its forebear, the Leander Class ASW Frigate “INS Vindhyagiri,” with due respect.</p>
<p>“During its approximately 31 years of service, from July 8, 1981, to June 11, 2012, the old Vindhyagiri took part in a number of difficult missions and international exercises. The recently named Vindhyagiri is a testament to India’s resolve to honor its historic naval tradition while advancing toward a future with homegrown defense capabilities, the Ministry of Defense stated.</p>
<p>Four ships by M/s MDL and three ships by M/s GRSE are now being built as part of Project 17A. MDL and GRSE launched the project’s first five ships between 2019 and 2022.</p>
<p>The Indian Navy’s Warship Design Bureau, the first organization for all warship design efforts, created the Project 17A ships internally.</p>
<p>A significant 75% of the orders for the equipment and systems of Project 17A ships are from domestic companies, including Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises (MSMEs), in keeping with the nation’s unwavering commitment to “AatmaNirbharta.” The Ministry said, “The launch of Vindhyagiri is a fitting monument to the amazing progress our country has achieved in becoming a self-reliant naval force.</p>
