INS Tarkash is scheduled to visit UK in May this year. This goodwill visit
would include bilateral exercises with the Royal Navy, participation in the
‘Indo UK Year of Culture’ activities, and, commemoration of the bicentennial
anniversary of HMS Trincomalee, a ship that was built in India 200 years ago
resonating ‘Make in India’.
While INS Tarkash is a state-of-the-art stealth frigate,
her crew vividly represents every part of India and her rich cultural diversity.
Her name is depicted by her insignia - ‘Tarkash’ - a quiver full of arrows, which
was an integral part of the battle armour donned by the valiant traditional
Indian warriors, who fought the epic battles of Ramayana and Mahabharata.
