The Indian Army is going to buy 12 high performance patrolling boats from Goa Shipyard Ltd. These patrolling boats will be deployed at Pangong Lake in Ladakh. There has been a situation of confrontation between India and China in Ladakh since May last year. With the arrival of these patrol boats, India’s strength to keep an eye on China’s antics will greatly increase.
The special thing is that the Indian Army has entered into an agreement to purchase these patrolling boats from the Goa Shipyard Ltd.
The Indian Army said it has signed a contract with the state-run Goa Shipyard Limited for the purchase of 12 fast patrol boats for monitoring and patrolling large reservoirs, including lakes located in high altitude areas.
The Army tweeted that the delivery of these boats will start from May 2021.
