NEW DELHI (BNS): Indigenous ASW corvette INS Kiltan arrived at Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam on Sunday, May 12, 2024 as part of operational deployment of the Indian Navy's Eastern Fleet, an official statement by Indian MoD said.

The warship received a warm welcome by Vietnam People's Navy and Indian Embassy. The visit is poised to further strengthen the longstanding friendship and cooperation between the two maritime nations.

“India and Vietnam share comprehensive strategic partnership. Furthering the ties, the visit by Indian Naval Ship Kiltan is focused on activities including professional interactions, sporting, social exchanges and community outreach reflecting the shared values of both navies,” the statement said.

The visit will conclude with a ‘Maritime Partnership Exercise’ at sea between the Indian Navy and Vietnam People's Navy. The exercise would further enhance the interoperability and exchange of best practices.

INS Kiltan is an indigenous anti-submarine warfare (ASW) corvette designed by Indian Navy's Directorate of Naval Design and built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE), Kolkata. INS Kiltan is the third of four P28 ASW corvettes.
