The‘Follow-on’ WJFACs are a further improved version of the ten Fast Attack Crafts earlier built by GRSE for Indian Navy. The first three ships of the ‘Follow-on’ Series of WJFACs INS Tarmugli, INS Tihayu & INS Tillanchang were commissioned into Indian Navy during 2016. These ships have an efficient hull form developed by the in-house Design Centre of GRSE and proved by extensive model testing, to achieve speeds in excess of 35 knots.  The ships measuring 48 X 7.5 M with a displacement of around 315 Tons havean endurance of around 2000 nautical miles at 12-14 knots speed.  They also boast of modern habitability conditions with accommodation for 29 personnel. During the Sea Trials, Tarasa had registered a speed of 35.07 knots.

With the handing over of “Tarasa”, GRSE has once again demonstrated its’ commitment to strengthen the maritime security of the Nation, thereby meeting the aspirations that the country has reposed on this Mini Ratna Shipyard.
