World of Warships, a naval warfare-themed online game has announced the inclusion of the legendary INS Mysore, the first-ever Indian Naval ship, to its war ship category.
The in-game rendition of the INS Mysore is going to be an exact replica of the real-life INS Mysore, the game makers stated in a press release.
“We are thrilled to finally introduce the INS Mysore for our players in India and across the world. Ever since our India launch we’ve been working closely with our partners to engage with our ever-growing Indian player base and provide them with unique themed content like Tri-Color camouflages in-game,” said Rajeev Girdhar, War of Warships European publishing director for and India operations lead, speaking on the launch of INS Mysore.
INS Mysore was a Fiji-class cruiser commissioned to the Indian Navy in 1957. She was acquired from the Royal Navy, where she served in World War II as HMS Nigeria.
INS Mysore was the second cruiser to be purchased by independent India. She served as the flagship for the western fleet during its service and was also the command ship for the raid on Karachi Harbor in 1971.
