On September 25, within the framework of Vietnam – India maritime industry meeting in Hai Phong City, delegates have a chance to discover INS Satpura - one of the most modern ships in India.
Accordingly, as part of ongoing celebrations to commemorate the 45th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Vietnam, the 10th anniversary of establishment of Strategic Partnership and 25th anniversary of India-ASEAN  relations, two Indian Naval Ships INS Satpura and INS Kadmatt shall be making a port call at Hai Phong, Vietnam from September 23 to 27.  INS Satpura is commanded by Captain Rahul Shankar and INS Kadmatt is commanded by Commander Nitin Cariappa.
INS Satpura (F48) is a Shivalik-class stealth multi-role frigate built for the Indian Navy. This class is an improvement over the preceding Talwar-class frigates with increased stealth and land attack features. INS Satpura was built at the Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) in Mumbai. The keel was laid on 31 October 2002 and was launched on 4 June 2004. The ship was completed in 2010 and underwent sea trials before being commissioned on 20 August 2011 into the Eastern Naval Command headquartered at Visakhapatnam.
The ship has aptitude to displacement 6,200 tonnes (6,100 long tons; 6,800 short tons) full load, length 142.5 m (468 ft), beam 16.9 m (55 ft) and complement 257 (35 officers).
During the visit, the crews will participate in joint training drills and knowledge and cultural exchanges, as well as sports games with the Vietnamese Navy. The activities are aimed to enhance relations, understanding, and trust between the two navies. After leaving Hai Phong, the ships' crews would conduct a passing exercise (PASSEX) and a search and rescue exercise with the Vietnamese Navy.
The last visit to Vietnam by Indian naval ships was in May 2016, when the INS Satpura and the corvette INS Kirch visited Cam Ranh International Port in central Vietnam.
