    Re: Indian Navy installs anti hijacking system to counter Somali pirates.

    Very true. Indian and Japanese navy are cooperating in the fight against piracy increasingly. If i am not mistaken, our navies will exercise together for the first time in the Indian Ocean as in the 90's Japan sent a Coast Guard vessel for exercises in order not to offend some countries.:cheers:

    No its impossible. And one should understand their system. Pirates do not decide (or very rarely) which target they are going to attack. They are usually hired for like mercenaries (in fact basically they are fishermen). So how to make the diff between a pirate /fisherman and a simpl fisherman? The only way imon and all these armies have the surveillance etc. abilities to do it is "you attack a ship"? you die.

    They are attacked because,they violated Sri Lankan territorial waters.These are pure accidental violations,even the Pakistani's don't open fire on Indian fishermen,when they enter Pakistani territorial waters.They take prisoners.I don't know what is wrong with Sri Lankans,one reason may be their antagonism towards Tamils.The biggest irony is some of their naval officers are even trained in India.

    http://INS Sukanya Interdicts Three Pirate Vessels In A Single Operation
    [​IMG]











    Indian Naval Ship Sukanya, presently deployed on anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden under the operational control of the Western Naval Command, found herself once again in the thick of things, thwarting a multiple-boat piracy attack on 10 Nov 11.

    The ship was escorting a group of five merchant vessels through the IRTC (Internationally Recognised Transit Corridor) when, at about 9:25 in the morning of 10th Nov, she detected a group of five suspicious boats, speedily approaching the merchant vessels of her group. The warship immediately altered towards the suspicious vessels and challenged them. On seeing the resolve evident in the warship’s action and probably mindful of the reputation for resolute action that the Indian Navy justly enjoys in such deployments, the pirate skiffs reversed course and tried to flee the area. While two of them managed to get away, the Sukanya successfully intercepted the remaining three and carried out well practiced and professionally executed boarding-and-search action.

    The three boats had a total of 26 Somali crew onboard. During the operation, six AK 47 rifles, 12 Magazines and about 300 rounds of ammunition were found and confiscated. In addition, the boarding party also found a host of other equipment such as grapnels, ladders and rope-handling gloves all of which confirmed their piratical intent. The timely operation by Sukanya resulted, once again, in foiling the pirates’ intention of attacking merchant vessels transiting this busy sea lane through which over a hundred Billion Dollars of India’s external trade passes each year. This is the fifth successful anti-piracy operation conducted by Sukanya, in the course of her ongoing patrol mission in the Gulf of Aden, which commenced in September. The ship has, thus far, confiscated a total of 14 AK 47 Rifles, 31 Magazines and 923 rounds of ammunition, thereby ensuring that the Indian Navy retains its standing as a force not to be trifled with, and remains at the forefront of anti-piracy operations, as a critical component of the international effort to curb piracy and ensure the safety and freedom of seaborne trade, even in this highly risk-prone area.

    Armed Iranian ship off the coast: Navy concerned

    KOCHI: An armed ship in India’s EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) is a matter of concern, said Vice-Admiral K N Sushil, Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Naval Command. Referring to the presence of an Iranian merchant vessel anchored off the Kerala coast, the Vice Admiral said the Ministry of Defence has already launched a protest with Iran in this regard.

    Addressing the media on Tuesday ahead of the Navy Day, Vice Admiral K N Sushil said the Navy has been keeping a close watch on the vessel.

    “The merchant vessel has machine guns onboard. Their reason for having weapons is the piracy menace. However, so far there’s no EEZ violation. Technically there’s no violation of the law. No action can be taken as they are not in our territorial waters,” the Vice Admiral said.

    Referring to increased incidents of piracy, the Vice Admiral said there was no end in sight for piracy. Until there was a proper government in Somalia, the issue will continue. “There’s no government to take legal action. Those going in search of the Somalian tuna get trapped,” he said, adding that there were media reports about fuel being sold to fishermen in black market.

    The Naval ships have thwarted more than 39 piracy attempts. With the piracy-prone area expanding eastward, the Navy has made additional deployments off the eastern and north-eastern Arabian Sea.

    The Navy in association with other stakeholders have taken efforts to ensure coastal security of Kerala and Lakshadweep islands, he said. The Southern Naval Command has been responding to requests from civil administration for help. However, much needs to be done with quick response, he said. Last year, naval teams from the Southern Naval Command were deployed 33 times to various districts in Kerala.

    Asked about the recent coastal security exercise, he said an area surrounding the LNG Terminal has been declared as no-fishing zone. Similarly, the area surrounding the Single Point Mooring (SPM) has been declared as safe zone. However, fishermen are in constant violation of the zone.

    Asked about the activities of the Indian Naval Academy at Ezhimala, he said the BTech courses at INA are on. The hospital at INA is yet to be commissioned. The Watermanship Training Centre has started functioning, though the building is yet to completed.
