    Navy inducts three fast interceptor craft

    The Navy has inducted the first lot of three Fast Interceptor Craft (FIC), adding muscle to its nascent Sagar Prahari Bal (sea protection force) tasked to protect naval assets and bases on both the East and West coasts and island territories of the country.

    Post-26/11, the government designated the Navy as the authority responsible for overall maritime security in the country and announced that FIC would be procured for seafront patrolling by the 1000-strong Sagar Prahari Bal.

    As part of the plan, orders for 15 FIC were placed with a French company at a cost of Rs. 60 crore. The first lot was deployed in Mumbai this week, a Navy spokesman said.

    Solas Marine, Sri Lanka is all set to be given the orders for another 80 FIC, worth Rs. 300 crore, after a global tender. The Cost Negotiation Committee of the Navy has completed its task and the formal contract is to be signed.

    The French firm is expected to fulfil the order by next year. After formal orders, it will take up to 36 months for the Sri Lankan firm to deliver the boats, the spokesman said.

    These boats are normally between 80 and 100 metres in length, can travel at a high speed of 40 to 50 knots with a crew of up to 7 personnel and can carry a light machine gun.

    Indian Navy is serious about protecting its coast lines and economic trade lines.

    This is why we are seeing such a fast pace developments for patrolling. The pirates trolling around only adds up to make this process even faster.
