An old depth indicator of INS Chakra, INS Dega, submarine suit to rescue a person during contingencies, nuclear submarine model, aerial drop torpedo to blast the submarine, different models of missiles, machine gun that fires 1,000 times per minute were the attractions at the fair.

Apart from the machinery, the stalls sold items ranging from bags to accessories as well as upholstery.
