More Grainy Goodness: Arihant Leaves Harbour

Here's another photograph of India's indigenously developed nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine Arihant leaving Visakhapatnam harbour on Monday. It isn't clear who took this photograph -- it arrived from multiple sources, (including on Whatsapp) but without credit. So if anyone knows where this is from, please let me know. Clearly taken from dockyard with two tugs guiding the submarine out, two Coast Guard vessels in the background and a naval ship (frigate?) in the foreground.

The navy ship in the foreground is quite clearly a Shivalik class frigate.

Zoom in, you can see one of the silos open.

That's a Shivalik-class frigate in the foreground. The MR-90 SAM FC radar position is a dead giveaway, as is the stern config with the flush flight deck. Talwars have the MR-90 too, but mounted further forward, and no flush stern.

All three Shivalik-class vessels are based at Vizag, so it's difficult to say exactly which one this is ;)

The frigate is one of the Shivalik Class judging by the shape of the Radar mast and the placement of the Barak VLS.Just not able to make out which one though !
