INS Tabar takes on Somali pirates


November 21, 2008
The helicopters on board the destroyer are generally used for aerial reconnaissance by launching them from the ship's deck and the armed versions of the Chetak or a Cheetah can be used to scare the pirates away and also attack them when the need arises.
