India has delivered the first batch of Shyena advanced lightweight torpedoes to Myanmar as part of a USD37.9 million deal that New Delhi signed with Naypyitaw in early 2017, Jane’s 360 has reported.

Official sources told Jane's on 15 July that an undisclosed number of the torpedoes, which were designed by India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), had been transferred to the Myanmar Navy in early July.

Inducted into the Indian Navy in early 2012, the self-homing Shyena can be launched from triple-tube launchers on surface ships and helicopters.
