Indian Navy Destroyer Sails With Pak, Chinese Warships
Indian Navy Delhi-class destroyer INS Mysore participated in a ceremonial sail-past with a retinue of regional warships, including a Pakistan Navy frigate and a Chinese destroyer this week off the coast of Sri Lanka, in what is perhaps the closest that warships from either nation have gotten to an Indian warship in a very long time. The Indian destroyer is in Sri Lanka for the country’s Presidential Fleet Review as part of the Lankan Navy’s 60-year celebrations. Pictured above are the Mysore (left) and the PNS Zulfiqar. Also part of the show was the PLAN’s Luyang-II-class destroyer Lanzhou.
