The western fleet of the Indian Navy today received a major boost to it’s combat power with the induction of the stealth frigate ‘INS Teg’.
| Here you can find more information about:
INS Teg (F45) is the fourth Talwar-class frigate constructed for the Indian Navy. She was built by the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad, Russia, and was commissioned on 27 April 2012. She is the first of the second batch of Talwar-class frigates to be completed.
The warship will have a crew of 24 officers and 229 sailors. The ship’s crew had departed from Mumbai in December 2011 for comprehensive training in Russia.
Teg belongs to the Talwar class of stealth frigates. The Talwar class guided missile frigates are modified Krivak III class frigates built by Russia. These ships use stealth technologies and a special hull design to ensure a reduced radar cross section. Much of the equipment on the ship is Russian-made, but a significant number of systems of Indian origin have also been incorporated. The main difference between INS Teg and the earlier Talwar-class ships is the use of BrahMos missiles in place of the Klub‑N missiles in the earlier ships.
