Haze Gray Mystery Picture #92 Answer


Can You Identify This Ship?

This is the Indian Navy destroyer Delhi (D61).

Delhi is the lead ship of a class of three 6,700 ton destroyers (two in service, one still under construction), the largest warships ever built in India. Their construction has been very protracted - Delhi was 10 years from keel laying to commissioning - but they quite modern and capable ships. Their armament includes 16 Kh-35 (SS-N-25) SSMs, two SA-N-7 SAM systems, a 100mm gun, 4 30mm CIWS, five heavy (21"/533mm) torpedo tubes), 2 RBU-6000 ASW rocket launchers, and two Sea King helicopters. Because of difficulty in distinguishing Delhi from her sister Mysore, I accepted either identification as "correct".
