Nirav,

In the whole world there is a tradition of first time somewhere. You have that with planes (and firefighters) and ships... Don't they have these kind of traditions in India?

He is saying the tugboats shoot up water to welcome ships into the harbour as part of a very old tradition. Which is exactly what is going on there.

Well I took these pics :D ... Thanks for bringing these in here. I just go too lazy to post them everywhere, so just posted them on Defence Talk and Sino Defence and waited for someone to proliferate from there on.

Couple of days before this pic I was on PNS Tariq when F-22P Zulfiqar made its way back to the docs. Chance to see Shamsheer was a lucky fortune. I happened to be visiting the Karachi Port (apparent in the pics) - which is opposite to the naval port - when Shamsheer entered Pakistan/Karachi for the 1st time. I may soon visit one of these ships on board hopefully - fingers crossed.

Following few minutes behind Shamsheer was one of our Agosta-90B. Since I was on duty and too lazy I decided not to take its pics. But I did take pics of Agosta-90B when I was at Naval side of the docs. You can find those pics on DT.

You need to look closely. Sourse of smoke seems to be a boat, probably a tug boat on the left, away from the frigate. Smoke can clearly be seen dispersing in the back ground.

Smoke in 2nd to left picture is from 252, exhaust most probably from reverse engine to slow down,

why is the smoke so dark? cant we apply some sort of a filtering mechanism to make the smoke less obvious?

The smoke is not coming from Shamsheer

It was coming from a weird looking boat. I just happened to be standing in a position where the smoking boat disappeared behind Shamsheer, hence when I took the picture it gave an illusion that it was coming from 252. and the boat was smoking even before Shamsheer arrived at the port.

I have seen both PNS Zulfiqar and PNS Shamsheer. Neither of them are in habit of smoking :D

Sabre Saheb, I agree. people are looking at an illusion created by ships position.
