    Their are very few Information about the Saryu class OPV available on Net.
    To the confusion SLNS have brought a Sukayna Class OPV which serves as SLNS Sayura :confused:
    No such like a Saryu class exist in the Indian Navy homepage, neither I am able to get a picture of the Saryu class OPV.

    According to Wiki: Saryu class patrol vessel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediawhile the Sukayna class : Sukanya class patrol vessel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediathe SLNS Sayura : SLNS Sayura - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaWhere are the vessels gone? :confused::confused::confused:

    Please help. Thanks.

    Please help me collecting some information about Saryu class, it seems like SLNS Sayura is not a Saryu class but a Sukayna class OPV, while the Naam karan under Saryu class are INS Saryu, INS Sunayna, INS Sumedha and INS Sumitra. And it seems the are not so much of a new project for a yet to be launch vessel. Wiki dont help with getting the Pennant number either.

    INS Subhadra
    INS Shuvama

    INS Sujata

    while for Saryu class it is

    Thank you Galaxy for the Picture, though I must say this S-class stuff of the Indian Navy is confusing. More information on Saryu would be appreciated.

    Wow if thats Saryu class then definitely a step up from Sukanya class. This and P-28's have raised the hope for what the P-17a will be like.

    Sukayna class OPVs are:
    • INS Sukayna (P50)
    • INS Subhadra (P51)
    • INS Shuvama (P52)
    • INS Savitri (P53)
    • INS Saryu (P54)
    • INS Saradha (P55)
    • INS Sujata (P56)
    These were commissioned between 1989 and 1993.

    In the year 2000, INS Saryu (P54, Sukayna class) was sold to SL.

    After that, the name INS Saryu name was no longer in the IN roster, so could be re-used. (Like we are getting a new INS Vikrant as the old INS Vikrant is no longer in service, so the name can be re-used)

    So the name of the new OPV is given INS Saryu (P57). The follow on ships of the same class are named:
    • INS Sunayna (P58)
    • INS Sumedha (P59)
    • INS Sumitra (P60)

    Hope this makes it clear.

    First INS Saryu was launched in 2009 , Its mainly designed for Maritime patrol , Ocean Surveillance , and Escorting high value vessels and fleet support operation.

    The last and fourth Ship is expected to launch by the end of 2014..

    Here is a complete note on indigenously designed OPV , with some features like On board weapons , Navigation , Communications and Flight deck support
