Indian warships arrive in Trincomalee

Two Indian naval ships, INS Sukanya and INS Kirpan, from the eastern fleet, Vishakhapatnam, arrived at Trincomalee today.

They are to participate in the joint naval exercise which many fear is a ‘warm up for war’.

The ships are based at Vishakhapatnam and are part of the eastern fleet.

INS Sukanya is an offshore patrol vessel and has served as the flagship and the presidential yacht for the President of India.

INS Kirpan was designed and built in India by the Garden Reach shipyard of Kolkatta.
