INS Teg calls at Salalah port

Sun, 17 June 2012

By A Staff Reporter — SALALAH — INS Teg, the latest ship of Indian Navy, called on Port of Salalah on Friday and is to leave for its next destination tomorrow. She was commissioned on April 27 at Kaliningrad, Russia. The state-of-art, stealth frigate with its formidable arsenal has a combination of diverse weapon systems which includes the Brahmos missile system.

Addressing a press conference on board yesterday, Ship Captain Rakesh Kumar Dahiya and A D Nayar, Defence Attache Indian Embassy, said Teg reinforces the growing strength of the Indian Navy and considerably extends the Blue Water capability of the Indian Navy's fleet. “The ship's crest embodies two crossed swords against the blue sky and ocean waves which symbolise strength, responsibility and commitment to a righteous cause,” said Captain Dahiya.

“The ship can also embark and operate an anti-submarine or an early warning helicopter Kamov 31, as a dominant force multiplier,” he said. Captain Dahiya is a Communication and Electronic Warfare specialist. The ship’s specially incorporated design features ensure reduction in radar cross section, infrared, magnetic and acoustic signatures and enhance the ship's stealth capability.
