Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) Delivers Final Batch of Varunastra Heavyweight Torpedoes to Indian Navy

Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) has reached a pivotal moment in India’s defense capabilities by completing the delivery of the last batch of Varunastra heavyweight torpedoes to the Indian Navy. The final torpedo was ceremoniously flagged off by Dr. Y Sreenivas Rao, Director General (Naval Systems & Materials) at BDL’s Visakhapatnam unit.

Varunastra: A Game-Changer in Naval Warfare

Varunastra, named after the Hindu god of the oceans, is a heavyweight, electrically-propelled torpedo designed to neutralize submarines in both deep and shallow waters. This advanced weapon system, developed by the Naval Science and Technological Laboratory (NSTL) of the Indian Navy, boasts an impressive indigenous content of over 95%.

Key Contract and Collaborative Efforts

The Indian Ministry of Defence awarded BDL a contract worth ?1,187 crore (US$170 million) in June 2019 for the mass production of Varunastra torpedoes. The successful completion of this project underscores the robust collaboration between the Indian Navy, NSTL, and BDL in the development and manufacturing of critical defense equipment.
