INS Teg (F45) is the fourth Talwar-class frigate constructed for the Indian Navy. She was built by the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad, Russia, and was commissioned into Navy service on 27 April 2012. She is the first of the second batch of Talwar-class frigates to be completed.

Teg belongs to the Talwar class of frigates. The Talwar-class guided missile frigates are modified Krivak III-class frigates built by Russia. These ships use stealth technologies and a special hull design to ensure a reduced radar cross-section.

The Talwar class frigates have a length of 124.8 m (409 ft 5 in), a beam of 15.2 m (49 ft 10 in), and a draught of 4.5 m (14 ft 9 in). They can reach a top speed of 30 knots (56 km/h; 35 mph).

Much of the equipment on the ship is Russian-made, but a significant number of systems of Indian origin have also been incorporated. The main differences between Teg and the earlier Talwar-class ships are the use of BrahMos missiles in place of the Klub-N missiles and the use of AK-630 instead of Kashtan in the earlier ships.

The Talwar class can accommodate one Ka-28 Helix-A antisubmarine helicopter or one Ka-31 Helix-B airborne early warning helicopter which can provide over-the-horizon targeting. The vessel can also embark the navalised variant of the indigenous HAL Dhruv.
