Mumbai: India's third indigenous naval destroyer INS Chennai built at the Mazagaon Docks was been launched on Thursday in Mumbai.

The warship was launched by Defence Minister AK Antony's wife Elizabeth Antony.

INS Chennai has been built in Mumbai under the code name of Project 15 Alpha.

The destroyer is the third and last of the Kolkata class warships built at Mazagaon Docks and displaces more than 6,000 tonnes.

Its weaponry is entirely indigenous comprising 16 Brahmos missiles and torpedos. The warship is also equipped with the indigenous Humsa sonar and Ellora electronic warfare suite, and carries two helicopters on board.

During the launch Antony stressed on the importance of having a well protected coastline, especially in the wake of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.

He said there is a need to built more warships for the Navy.

"Protecting our coastline is most important after 26/11. We must defend it against all possibilities. We need to build more warships for the Navy and Coast Guard indigenously. Our defence shipyards must be able to fulfil our requirements on time and keep up quality," said Antony.

The Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Nirmal Verma was also present on the occasion.
