INS Cuddalore, a Natya class minesweeper of the Indian Navy, celebrated her 25th anniversary here today. According to a Navy release here, the anniversary celebrations were marked by a host of activities that included a Ceremonial Parade and a picnic for the Ship's crew. A traditional cake cutting ceremony was conducted on board in the presence of Commander Partha Bhatt, the Commanding Officer, who congratulated the crew on the momentous occasion and urged them to renew their pledge to continue meeting all future commitments in keeping with the Ship's motto--'Excellence - A Way of Life'. Commissioned on October 29, 1987 at Riga (erstwhile USSR), the ship is the senior Ship of the 21 Mine Counter measures (MCM) Squadron based at the Eastern Naval Command (ENC), Visakhapatnam under the operational authority of the Naval Officer-in-Charge (Andhra Pradesh), it said. The Ship has had a glorious history of 25 Years of ultifarious operations in a changing maritime environment and has met with alacrity, all operational commitments since inception. It has distinguished itself in a multitude of operational tasks and has been deployed for versatile operations ranging from coastal mines weeping and local naval defence to route mapping the ocean, the release added. The Ship has also undertaken several long-range deployments and independent missions including search and rescue at sea. In keeping with the Indian Navy's vision of transformation, the recent fitment of the state of the art Mine Hunting Sonar Suite (MHSS) has enhanced the ship's role from conventional mine sweeping and to that of mine hunting, it said.
