Goa Shipyard launched the future ICGS Sujeet, an offshore patrol vessel (OPV) ordered for the Indian Coast Guard, at its Vasco da Gama facility on Saturday, May 25.
The 105- by 13-metre ship is the eighth of a planned 11 Samarth-class OPVs.
Like its sisters, Sujeet will have two MTU 20V8000M71L engines delivering a speed of 23 knots, a crew of 126, a 30-millimetre autocannon, two 12.7-millimetre machine guns, and a helicopter deck.
