The ship crews will replenish their storages with food and water. The servicemen will have a rest and see the sights.

The ship detachment has been operating in the sea since October. The ships carried out combat tasks in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and took part in the Indo Defence Expo & Forum 2016.
