Re: Indian Navy News & Discussion - 03 July 2018

I think after the fire begining of year INS Shivalik has not gone out in any mission. It must be still in Vizag and possibly going through repairs. In most of the deployment and maritime exercises I have observed two sister ships of Shivalik class but not INS Shivalik
