Not the Euryalus, as this ship is a batch 2 Leander with a Mk 5 gun turret. Euryalus was a batch 1 and had the ineffective Ikara ASM system instead of the turret.

From various Googled sources:
HMS Diomede (F16) was a Leander-class frigate of the Royal Navy (RN). She was built by Yarrow Shipbuilders in Glasgow. Diomede was launched on 15 April 1969 and commissioned on 2 April 1971.
In 1988, Diomede was decommissioned from the Royal Navy and subsequently sold to Pakistan where she was renamed PNS Shamsher.
Commissioned in the Pakistan Navy on July 15, 1988, the frigate was relatively new, having served in the Royal Navy for only 16 years. She belongs to the Batch 3A Broad Beam Leander class. Armament was not changed except for the substitution of the original Wasp helicopter by the Alouette 3, a standard PN helicopter.
After working up in UK waters, the frigate sailed for Pakistan in August 1988.
In 1991-93 she was extensively refitted.
No. 333 Squadron (PNS Mehran, Karachi) flies the Alouette 3s in the Pakistan Navy.
Now decommissioned and used as spares for Zulfiqar.

Yep, we called her Shiney Eurly, because she was F1 Flag Ship and was painted every day.
