The first-ever indigenously produced SCORPENE submarines equipment was recently delivered to Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) for the P75 SCORPENE submarines, which basically is the main attraction.
Along with the Indian P75 SCORPENE submarine, its SUBTICS combat system and its optional MESMA Air Independent Propulsion section are also on display.
DCNS also showcases the MISTRAL-class LHD (199m, 21,500t), which was delivered ahead of schedule, together with the GOWIND OPV L’ADROIT (87m, 1,000t).
The new BARRACUDA SSN built for the French Navy together with the design of a new generation aircraft carrier are also on display.
