    The Saryu Class Naval Offshore Patrol Vessels, An in-house design for INS which accommodates 118 Crew members. I read that the offshore patrol vessel can conduct a range of missions, including maritime patrol, ocean surveillance and overseeing the sea lines of communication.

    Kudos to Indian Navy ... :)

    KOCHI: INS Sunayna, the second of the Naval Offshore Patrol Vessel class of ship, was commissioned by Vice Admiral Satish Soni, Flag Officer Commanding in Chief Southern Naval Command.

    The vessel, to be based here under Southern Naval Command, has been built at the Goa Shipyard Limited and will meet the increasing ocean surveillance and patrolling requirements of the Indian Navy.

    The warship is designed to undertake fleet support operations, coastal and offshore patrolling, ocean surveillance and monitoring of Sea Lines of Communications and offshore assets and escort duties.

    Speaking on the occasion, Vice Admiral Soni said the shipbuilding process continues to be one of the most challenging tasks starting from design to integration of diverse equipment, prior final setting to work and delivery of a seaworthy combat platform.

    Two diesel engines propel INS Sunayna and enables it to achieve speeds in excess of 25 knots. The ship also has an automatic power management system and is fitted with the latest Navigation, Communication and Electronic Support Systems.

    INS Sunayna can also carry a helicopter. Commander Aftab Ahmed Khan, the Commanding Officer of the ship leads a crew of 8 officers and 108 sailors.

    Later speaking to reporters, the Vice Admiral said the ship was ready to fight piracy. 'We see deployment of Sunayana in the Gulf of Eden in the near future', he said.

    Good. After completing the rest of the ships in OPV category GSL should start building AIP equipped submarines since Indian Navy is having a shortage of submarines.

    Sir, can we modify this platform for same functions as a destroyer? It can certainly hold a helicopter, and fitment of HUMSA Sonar and a CIWS / Akash SAM system can give a bubble of Air Defence.

    Context being: Kolkota Class taking 10 + years, while these type of vessels can be stamped out in 2-3 years, even open avenues for L&T. Speed of 15 knot acceptable, endurance increased by replenishment at sea. Well?

    these ships have swing role weapons fit. They are more of support vessels than actual man of war. They can help as weapon supply ships, troop transport and also hospital ship. making every ship a destroyer or frigate is not good as the weapons and associated stuff takes away lot of space.

    They can be upgraded to Light frigate configuration but not a destroyer. Can throw 8 SAM's and maybe 4 inclined SSM's like Uran on them. Ofcourse the chopper can carry Dunking sonar, torps or Uran missiles.
