(Update) 2 Indian Navy ships to visit PHL this May 30 to June 2

From the Philippine News Agency (May 28): (Update) 2 Indian Navy ships to visit PHL this May 30 to June 2

Two Indian Navy ships, the INS Sahyadri (F-49) and INS Shakti (A-57), will stage a four-day port visit in Subic Bay, Zambales starting May 30 up to June 2.

The visit is in-line with the deepening cooperation between the Indian Navy and the Philippine Navy.

INS Sahyadri is a Shivalik class stealth multi-role frigate built for the Indian Navy. She weighs around 6,200 tons.

This class features improved stealth and land attack capabilities over the preceding Talwar-class frigates.

This is her third visit to the Philippines, with the first in August 2014 and the second last November.

INS Shakti is a Deepak-class fleet tanker in service with the Indian Navy. She was built by Fincantieri, an Italian shipbuilding company based in Trieste.

She is the second and final ship of her class. INS Shakti, along with her predecessor Deepak, is one of the largest ships of the Indian Navy, weighing 27,550 tons.
