India Voyager II
First appearance: "Crocco Island West"
Created by: Tony DePaul & Paul Ryan

India Voyager II was a ship, helmed by Captain Savarna. Presumably, it was named after the India Voyager I, the ship on which she spent her idyllic childhood before her family was massacred by pirates.

The India Voyager II was unusual in many ways. It was fully automated, so that no crew was needed, apart from Savarna herself. However, it had very comfortable accommodations for human passengers. The Phantom contacted Savarna when he needed to relocate the Croccos to a safe location. Savarna is an excellent cook and entertained the Walkers and Old man Mozz with fine cuisine, while the Croccos travelled down in the bilges. Crocco Island West

The India Voyager II was secretly heavily armed, with an OTO Melaro 76mm deck gun in a retractable mount and an underwater torpedo tube for Savarna to use in her vendetta against any pirates who were tempted to attack her. These weapons were so well-concealed that the Phantom was unaware of them when he travelled on the ship the first time. Savarna is also well-supplied with small-arms, and usually carries a hand-gun on her person.

Inside the ship was Savarna's exquisitely-furnished boudoir, where she changes from her uniform into more feminine attire.

After an attack by Rodian navy jet fighters, it shipwrecked off the coast of Rodia. Revenge in Rhodia
