History[edit | edit source]
INS Taragiri was the final ship of the Nilgiri class, and was named after a hill range in the Garhwal Himalaya. Cdr. Rahul Shankar was the 27th and last commanding officer of the frigate. Along with INS Vindhyagiri, she was significantly modified. A Westland Sea King anti-submarine helicopter, A244S 321mm triple torpedo tubes and a Bofors anti-submarine twin barrel mortar were added. Later, she was also fitted with advanced ship control systems for controlling Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. These modifications gave the ship enhanced anti-submarine and network-centric warfare capabilities. She was operational under the Western Naval Fleet of the navy and performed surveillance missions when on blue water operations, and later performed coastal patrolling and anti-piracy operations.
