RIMPAC, the Rim of the Pacific Exercise, is the world's largest international maritime warfare exercise. Covering a distance of over 5000 nautical miles (9000 Km), Indian Naval Ship Sahyadri, an indigenously built guided missile stealth Frigate arrived at Pearl Harbour, USA to participate in the multilateral maritime exercise, called RIMPAC (Rim of Pacific). Long range anti-ship missiles, medium and short range surface to air missiles augmented by powerful guns of different calibers provide a formidable shield against all types of threats. Two integral multi-role helicopters carried by the ship act as force multipliers in all maritime scenarios due to their versatility and long range. Commissioned on 21 July 12, INS Sahyadri, is presently being commanded by Captain Jyotin Raina, and is manned by 25 officers and 255 sailors of different specialisations/branches.
