Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited (MDL), India’s leading shipyard, has announced plans to develop a full-scale, indigenous conventional submarine design by 2028. This project will be undertaken in collaboration with the Indian Navy’s Warship Design Bureau (WDB).

The new submarine design will be for a 3,000-ton vessel and is expected to incorporate several cutting-edge technologies. This aligns with the Indian Navy’s Project-76, which aims to procure 12 indigenously-built, conventional diesel submarines equipped with advanced features like Air-Independent Propulsion (AIP), Lithium-ion batteries, and potentially pump-jet propulsion.

It’s important to note that the Warship Design Bureau is also working on its own submarine design independently. It remains unclear which design will ultimately be selected by the Indian Navy.

This news signifies a significant step forward in India’s quest for self-reliance in the defense sector. By developing its submarine design, India aims to reduce dependence on foreign suppliers and bolster its domestic shipbuilding capabilities.
