The latest technology used to build Scorpene class submarines has provided superior stealth features such as advanced acoustic silence techniques, low radiation levels, hydro-dynamically optimized shape and the ability to launch an attack to the enemy using precision-guided weapons. The attack can be mounted with both torpedoes and tubular anti-ship missiles, at the same time as underwater or on the surface.

The stealth of this strong platform is enhanced by the special attention paid to the various signatures. These characteristics stealthily give it inviolability, unbeatable by most submarines.

Two SSK submarines built by MDL in 1992 and 1994 are still in service after more than 25 years, a clear testament to the quality of MDL construction. MDL has also achieved expertise in submarine repairs by successfully executing the Refit-cum-Upgradation medium of all four Indian Navy SSK class submarines. She is currently completing the INS Shishumar Medium and Life Correction Certification, the first SSK submarine, an MDL statement said.
