    The Build Specification of ASW Corvette released in July 2003 specified a displacement of 2500 tonnes and achievement of maximum speed of 25 knots and cruising speed of 18 knots at ambient temperature of 400C. GRSE clarified (November 2005) that it was not in a position to ensure stipulated weight as per Statement of Technical Requirements approved by the Navy. At the time of signing of the contract in June 2012, MoD increased the displacement to 3170 tonnes. Audit observed that the actual displacement of the first two Corvettes (3017 and 3018) delivered was 3384 and 3490 tonnes and the maximum speed achieved was 23.9 knots and 22.8 knots. The drop in the achievement of the specified speed was mainly on account of increase in weight of the ASW Corvette by over 800 tonnes from initial envisaged 2500 tonnes

    Any specific reason why Kadmat has a gray middle tower, whereas the Kamorta has a black one?

    Technically that is the Smoke stack! AFAIK - the reason to paint it black is to cover the black shoot/smoke particles that will cover this after prolong use to keep the looks of the ship clean and it is the discretion of the IN or atleast her captain to decide to paint it black - if you see the post #80, even the soon to be inducted INS Kiltan doesn't have her smoke stack painted black

    Case and point : From the IAF and their MI17s , note the exausts

    Sitharaman to commission indigenous INS Kiltan on Oct 16
    New Delhi [India] Oct 9 : Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will commission indigenously built INS Kiltan, an anti submarine corvette, on October 16 in Vishakhapatnam.

    INS Kiltan represents a leap forward in the Indian Navy's attempts at indigenisation with as much as 90 percent of its content drawn from India itself.

    The keel of INS Kiltan was laid in August 2010 and it was launched in Kolkata on March 26, 2013 by Chitra Joshi, wife of Admiral D. K. Joshi, then Chief of Naval Staff.

    INS Kiltan is third of the four Project 28 warships. Project 28 was approved in 2003, and construction of the lead ship, INS Kamorta was started in August 2005. Two of the four corvettes, INS Kamorta and INS Kadmatt were commissioned in 2014 and 2016 respectively. The remaining one INS Kavaratti is under construction and is slated to be completed by the end of 2017.

    INS Kiltan and INS Kavaratti are to be more advanced than their elder ships. INS Kiltan is capable of fighting under nuclear, biological and chemical environments. It will be a frontline warship of the Indian Navy with advanced stealth features and a low radar signature that enhances its anti-submarine warfare capability. The original INS Kiltan - an anti-submarine corvette - was decommissioned in 1987.

    The Kamorta-class corvettes or Project 28 are a class of anti-submarine warfare corvettes currently in service with the Indian Navy. Built at Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE), Kolkata, they are the first anti-submarine warfare stealth corvettes to be built in India.

    The platform and major internal systems of this class of corvettes are indigenously designed and built. The corvettes are named after the islands in the Lakshadweep archipelago.

    The Kamorta class corvettes are intended to succeed the Kora-class corvette by precedence and Abhay-class corvette by role.

    The corvette's design was originally planned to be based on the Russian corvette Project 2038.2, however, the basic design was later provided by the Indian Navy's Directorate of Naval Design, followed by the detailed design by GRSE.

    The design includes many stealth ship features, including reductions in acoustic signature and vibration of the vessels.
