India Aquires New Ships for its Naval Arsenal

The Indian Ministry of Defence has signed a contract with Hindustan Shipyard Limited to purchase 5 Fleet Support Ships (FSS) for approximately $2.3 billion.

These new ships will be entirely manufactured by the Indian company, Hindustan Shipyard Limited, and will feature Indian-made equipment, aligning with India’s policy of reducing foreign components in its military industry.

These ships will primarily be used for supplying naval vessels and machinery with water, fuel, ammunition, and other essential items. Each of the new Indian FSS ships will have a length of around 230 metres, a displacement of 45,000 tons, a maximum speed of 20 knots, and a range of 12 nautical miles per mission.
