    After delivering the fourth vessel in the coming future, Goa Shipyard should build new submarines and minesweepers for the Indian Navy.

    Not sure if they can do sub but minesweepers and ASW corvettes like P-28a would be possible.

    I feel the Saryu class is way more capable than just Offshore Patrolling.

    This offshore patrol vessel can conduct a range of missions, including maritime patrol, ocean surveillance and overseeing the sea lines of communication (SLOC), protection of offshore oil field infrastructure and offshore national assets and escorting the high value vessels.

    The Saryu Class can also be used to escort high value vessels and fleet support operations. The NOPV can conduct uninterrupted missions for an extended period of 60 days.

    It's quite sad to see that our warships design institutions are still not at all very efficient in space management.I mean just take a look at -----is or the Turks - they have been putting anti ship missiles even in 400 ton class vessels and here we are wasting even 2500 ton class hulls like Kamorta class corvettes or these NOPVs!!
    Some may say that these vessels are for different roles and hence not needed to be fitted as such.But giving them a secondary anti ship capability wouldn't hurt that much either - would it now??These vessels,when armed with AShMs and SHORADS,could form a formidable fleet of second line of surface combatants only if....a BIG IF our Naval Design Bureau had shown a little bit more far-sight and common sense.Seems common sense is not so common after all!!

    Pls design me a ship which would be cheap but have enough endurance to be capable of sustained patrol of horn of Africa, pls give a rough estimate on the spec. of the ship you would design?
