Indian Navy inducts first submarine rescue vehicle

The Indian Navy now has the capability to search for, locate, and provide rescue to distressed submarines following the service’s recent induction of its first deep submergence rescue vessel (DSRV) and associated kit in fly-away configuration.

The equipment can be rapidly mobilised from the naval base at Mumbai to the nearest mounting port by air, land, or sea for rescue of a submarine in distress.

The second rescue kit is planned for induction at Visakhapatnam in 2019.
