The Delhi-class Guided Missile Missile Destroyer is a class of warship used by the Indian Navy in the 21st century. The Delhi-class vessels are the largest warships to be fully designed and built in India, although they will soon be superseded by the Kolkata-class destroyers and the Vikrant-class aircraft carriers. They were built at Mazagon Dock Limited in Mumbai. During the 2008 Indian Ocean War, all three ships of the Delhi-class were sunk Australian, British, and Canadian forces.
