Foundation Stone for a Missile Park "AGNEEPRASTHA" was laid at INS Kalinga.  

  • AGNEEPRASTHA’ aims to capture glimpses of Missile History of INS Kalinga since 1981 till date. 
  • The Missile Park has been set up with a replica of missiles and Ground Support Equipment (GSE) that showcase the evolution of missiles handled by the unit. 
  • The exhibits have been created from scrap / obsolete inventory which have been reconditioned in-house.  
  • The main attraction is P-70 'Ametist', an underwater launched anti-ship missile from the arsenal of the old 'Chakra' (Charlie-1 submarine) which was in service with IN during 1988-91. 
  • AGNEEPRASTHA’ will also provide a one-stop arena for motivation and stimulation of inquisitive minds regarding the missiles and related technologies, from school children to Naval personnel and their families.   
  • It is also intended to encourage a feeling of ownership and pride in the role of the Unit, and highlight the necessity of contribution of all personnel irrespective of rank/trade towards the overarching objective of ordnance availability, reliability and delivery on target, each and every time.
