Pakistan Navy on Thursday has released a special video to commemorate the golden jubilee of historic Hangor Day.

The video shows the great success of the Pakistan Navy submarine Hangor during the 1971 war against the enemy.

According to the spokesperson of the Pakistan Navy, Hangor Day is a reminder of the unmatched courage and unwavering commitment of the Pakistan Navy’s submarine Hangor.

In the 1971 war, Pakistan Navy submarine Hangor sank the Indian Navy frigate Khukri and crippled Indian Navy Ship Kirpan.

The spokesperson said after the Second World War, it was the first incident in which a submarine destroyed a naval ship. He said the enemy will never forget this great success of the Pakistan Navy.

Naval Chief Admiral Muhammad Amjad Khan Niazi has said that the submarine Hangor made history. “We have not forgotten this day and neither can our enemy.”
