    The first corvette is expected to be delivered to the Indian Navy in 2012. All the four corvettes are planned to be handed over to the Indian Navy by the year 2014.

    I think there are 7 ships in Kamorta Class Corvettes and not just 4.
    Can someone confirm this??

    There will a total of 10 such ships. They will be replacements for the old Petya class as dedicated sub hunters with a very low draught.

    I'm thinking why shouldn't India make its own version of the Littoral Combat Ship based
    on the P28 design? With help from the Gujarat Shipbuilders Ltd. (who built the Makar advanced
    catamaran a few months ago), India's own LCS is very feasible for shallow-water ops near enemy
    coastlines. We need to take some precautions like keeping the weight displacement and
    draught low, and give superior firepower for the vessel...shouldn't step on the same landmine
    the Americans stepped on anyway, thats why.
