Project 28

Project 28 is the primary project for driving localisation and developing the warship construction industry in India.

The aim with this project is to stipulate unprecedented standards while providing opportunities to Indian vendors to develop expertise with the technology.

The Project 28 corvettes are 2500-tonne warships that will protect Indian Navy battle groups and coastal installations from lurking enemy submarines.
In the deadly cat-and-mouse game between ASW corvettes and submarines, the stealthier vessel is usually the winner, detecting and destroying its opponent after sneaking up undetected.
The challenge of Project 28 has been to minimise vibrations and noise from the ship’s machinery, propellers, and from water swirling past the hull.
