International Fleet Review

International Fleet Review (IFR) is a parade of naval ships, aircraft, and submarines, and is organised by nations to promote goodwill, strengthen cooperation and showcase their organisational capabilities.

IFR also serves as an ideal platform for the world's navies to showcase their prowess and indigenous ship designing and shipbuilding capabilities in the international arena.

INS Kolkata

INS Kolkata is equipped with state-of-the-art weapons and sensors to address threats in all dimensions of naval warfare.

INS Shakti

INS Shakti is a replenishment ship, and one of the largest tankers displacing over 27,000 tonnes and capable of carrying 15,000 tonnes of liquid cargo and over 500 tonnes of solid cargo including victuals and ammunition.
