Two Indian naval warships, INS Deepak and INS Tabar, concluded a successful three-day visit to Kuwait from 13 -16 September.
During their short stay, senior officers onboard the ships undertook various professional interactions with their Kuwaiti counterparts and the two ships engaged in joint naval exercises with the Kuwaiti fleet, which helped to enhance cooperation and familiarize operations between the two navies.
Children from various Indian schools had the opportunity to visit the ships. Indian Ambassador H.E. Sunil Jain also hosted a reception onboard INS Deepak for special invitees and the media.
INS Deepak is a modern fleet tanker designed to be utilized as a fleet support ship, while INS Tabar is the latest of the three Talwar class Stealth Frigates. INS Deepak has adequate facility for providing frontline support to fleet ships and has an advanced Integrated Platform Management System which seamlessly integrates auxiliaries and battle damage management of the ship using microprocessor based digital control systems.
INS Tabar is one of the frontline combatants of the Western Fleet of the Indian Navy. Her versatility, stealth and enhanced sensor / weapon capability makes Tabar an indispensible asset of the Indian naval fleet, which is always ready on call to protect the maritime assets and sovereignty of the nation.
