Mormugao, the second ship of the Project 15B Destroyer sails for her maiden sea trials.
I think this is the 1st time I am seeing an unfinished destroyer in sea trials. There have been similar instances in the past but images were hard to come by. May be they were very eager to celebrate the day.

The work on the weapons & propulsion are clearly complete. The radars, EW, ESM etc. remains to be integrated. Of course the paint work is also incomplete. I think commissioning by mid-2022 is very realistic.

The painters missed the deadline. Dec 19th. Now the ship captain has something to talk about when new recruits show up.

Seems MF-STAR supply issues are not resolved. Even IAC Vikrant sailed for trials w/o having it installed.

Paint aside everything else looks to be in place on Marmugao.
