A new stealth frigate built for the Indian navy by Russia arrived in the port of Mumbai on Friday, a diplomat said.

The ceremony for the arrival of INS Teg involved senior Indian navy officers as well as Russian officials and diplomats, said a spokesman for the Russian consulate in Mumbai.

INS Teg is the first of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates being built at the Yantar Shipyard under a $1.6 billion deal signed in 2006.

The other two vessels will follow in about a year, a Yantar spokesman said in April.

The 3,970-ton frigate incorporates stealth technologies and is armed with eight 290-km BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

The Indian navy already has three Russian-built Talwar class frigates.
