Today we are discussing list of Indian naval ships and submarines and indian naval equipments . Many of name of list of indian naval ships and submarines you would not hear before .

And it all would like Torpedo , Varunastra , shyena , mareech advanced torpedo defence system .

Torpedo list of Indian naval ships and submarines


Torpedo is such type of weapon system that does propelled underwater then it destroy enemy tarket and it has explosive warhead .

this torpedo comes in use to destroy underwater targets as well as overwater targets .

a torpedo consist of propelled system , guildance system , warhead and other electronic component whether that is measurement unit .

when we launch it underwater so this launch by ships and submaries and when we have to launched overwater so torpedo launched by helicopters .

And this torpedo comes in list of indian naval ships and submaries .

propelled system

As you normal missiles use oxygen for burning his fuel But underwater missiles does not able to use oxygen so where comes in use propulsion system .

types of propulsion system

first —- like In diesel electric submarines , there does a propeller in electric motor which does circulation by fuel .

second —- by the use of this fuel and oxidisers mix up with fuel , we call it auto fuel .


we call to this SONAR system at one end of torpedo like behind conical shape , this does cover to wide area and this is in three modes active , passive and active passive mode .

these modes use when navy want to exercise , practice and war according to condition .

proximity fuse

when your torpedo guild by wire in that case you have a control when you want ignite your warhead .

when your torpedo goes near to target , his active system automatically activate warhead of your torpedo at particular distance from the target .

Electronic Gyro hydrostate

this system help like when you want to fire your torpedo at specific point but when your torpedo move inside water a drift force of water will act on your torpedo .

your torpedo can disturb to reach your target by this system your torpedo will not able to disturb to reach your target and there will no affect on torpedo accuracy cause of this system .

Varunastra torpedo

varunastra is a torpedo of indian naval , this is a very heavy advanced torpedo and this torpedo carries 250 kg of explosives at a speed of around 40 nautical miles an hour .

what is nautical miles ?

nautical is unit of distance which use in maritile domain . this comes in use ocean related works .

1 nautical mile = 1.85 kilometre

SO now again comes in varunastra . this varunastra can be launced from ships as well as submarines .

this varunastra comes in list of indian naval ships and submarines weapons

this varunastra designed by NSTL( Naval science and technology laboratory) and this will manufacture in BDL ( Bharat dynamic limited ) .

what is NSTL ?

full forms

Mareech advanced torpedo defence system

this torpedo defence system does help to find and save from enemies torpedoes .

this torpedo defence system is made compeletely by india .

this Defence system has sonars system for detection and decoy counter measures to protect india’s warships .

What is SONAR system ?

SONAR mean is Sound Navigation and Ranging , this system use sound and navigate target how much is far .

SONAR does decoy countermeasures means gives hoax or spoof to enemies due to this enemy will not able find our actual location .

SO mareech defence system has both detection and decoy countermeasure technique . this defence system comes in list of indian naval ships and submarines saviour weapons .


Submarines exist in underwater and it come in use for navigation , survellance and attack as well .

modern submarines can launch ballistic missile .

Arihant class submarines

All submarines of Arihant class submarines generate nuclear power by which power of these submarines become endless and they are able to stay or live underwater for long time .

Submarines has no problem to stay inside of water by virtue of fuel but there does limitation for crew members by virtue of food .

In submarines underwater food for crew members become finished itself atlast .

these submarines can able take K15 OR K4 submarine launch ballistic missiles .

INS Aridhaman and INS Arihant comes in these class submarines .

INS Arihant Commissioned underwater in 2016 .

INS Aridhaman will commissioned underwater after few improvements .

these two INS Aridhaman and INS Arihant comes in list of indian naval ships and submarines .

Difference between destroyers and frigates ?

In the world destroyers and frigates comes in more use in world’s navy . these warships makes for speed , meneuverability , squat of big fleets and give protection to fleets .

Both of destroyers and frigates are able to stop underwater attack , overwater attacks and air attacks .

most of thing are similar in destroyers and frigates .

Europian countries destroyers and frigates does same as well .

most of countries have frigates where as 13 developed countries have destroyers as well as frigates .

  • Destroyers have big size in compare of frigates .

these days frigates and destroyers have same size . destroyers have more speed and frigates have big size as have destroyers .

Today china has only 52 frigates , more or less taiwan has 24 firgates and In third number united state has 22 frigates .

where as india has only 13 frigates .

united nation only one country which has 68 destroyers , second number japan has 37 destroyers and china has 33 destroyers .

where as india has only 12 destoryers .

since destroyer big in size so easily can carry more weapon and its penetration power very high .

where as frigates is small in size so it can not carry more weapons .

And Big and power rador use in destroyers .

that’s why a destroyers turns more power than frigates .

destroyers does more aircover and fire power that’s why destroyers use in battlegroup and In battlegroup destroyers does stop attacks and air protection by destroyers .

A destroyer have more speed in compare of small size frigates . powerful and big engine does not use in frigates for improving speed and power .

world fastest frigate is indian shivalik class frigates and its speed 32 knots

59 km/h . average frigates speed 48 km/h to 55km/h .

both are destroyers and frigates comes in list of indian naval ships and submarines .
