The Indian Navy has received a P15B stealth guided-missile destroyer, a first of its kind, from Mazagaon Dock Shipbuilders on Thursday, an official statement generated said on Saturday.  

The construction and delivery of ‘Visakhapatnam’ is another proof of impetus given by the Indian government and the Indian Navy to the indigenous warship construction programmes, the statement said.
