The destroyer was commissioned last year and will assist the Indian Navy in dealing with the increasing challenges in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR). INS Visakhapatnam is equipped with cutting-edge sensors and armaments, as well as advanced surveillance radars. Hence, the mobility, flexibility, and reach of the navy will also be enhanced.
