The Scorpene Class submarines can undertake multifarious missions like anti-surface warfare, anti-submarine warfare, intelligence gathering, mine-laying, area surveillance, and more. It has been designed to operate in all theatres of operations, showcasing interoperability with other components of a naval task forces, making her a potent platform and marking a transformational shift in submarine operations.
