India to Add New Ships to its Fleet

The Indian Ministry of Defense has recently signed a contract with Hindustan Shipyard Limited for the acquisition of 5 FSS-class warships of support and supply. This deal, valued at approximately $2.3 billion, signifies India’s commitment to strengthening its naval capabilities.

India’s policy of abandoning foreign components in the military industry is further reflected in the fact that these new ships will be entirely manufactured by Hindustan Shipyard Limited, using Indian-made equipment.

The primary purpose of these ships will be to provide essential supplies such as water, fuel, ammunition, and other necessary items to ships and marine equipment. Additionally, they will play a crucial role in rescue operations and disaster relief efforts.

Each of the new Indian ships of the FSS will measure around 230 meters in length, with a displacement of 45,000 tons. They will have a maximum speed of 20 nautical knots and a range of 12 nautical miles per flight.
