On January 30, the 124 meter long Indian Navy amphibious vessel Airavat ran aground off the coast of Vishakhapatnam. The Airavat, a Magar-class Landing Ship Tanker (LST), was returning back to port to the naval dockyard when it touched bottom. The LST had suffered damage to its propeller requiring it to go into drydock, but there were no injuries reported. The commanding officer was relieved of duty afterwards. The Indian Navy stated it has launched a probe into the incident.
The former Brasilian Navy vessel Ary Parreiras G21 sank off the south coast of Peloponnese, Greece. The naval vessel was under tow of the tug Istan Bull when it started to take on water. The water ingress could not be stopped and the Ary Parreiras G21 sank. The condition of the vessel was poor as it was being taken to the shipbreakers in Turkey. No reports of injuries.
