In addition to dozens of Russian "Thirty-eights" (May), five of the same aircraft the Indian Navy were upgraded with the "Sea Dragon" airborne search and sighting system, the export name of "Novella." They differ somewhat in the composition of airborne equipment, including retrieval systems. Export SDs are distinguished by the three airfoil shaped struts supporting the ESM/ELINT pod, while Russian aircraft have a lattice structure instead.
