Notes: Developed by the Indian coast guard as a variant of the navy’s Sukanya class OPV, these vessels ended up being as well-equipped; if not better, than those vessels. The Samar class has a telescopic hangar that can house any type in Indian service, plus berthing for a marine contingent. They also have SATCOM, and excellent fire-fighting and salvage facilities.
