India to showcase indigenous warship in Doha exhibition
New Delhi: Showcasing its ship-building
prowess, the Indian Navy is sending its missile frigate INS
Betwa to a maritime defence systems exhibition in Doha from
March 28 to April 3.
"INS Betwa will represent India at the Doha International
Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference 2010 in Qatar and
showcase India`s capability of building warships on its own,"
Navy officials said here.
India has indigenised and developed its shipbuilding
capabilities and is now making big-size warships such as the
38,000 tonne Indigenous Aircraft Carrier also, they added.
Along with the Navy, the other significant Indian
exhibitors at the show would be the BrahMos Aerospace
Corporation and the Goa Shipyard Limited.
Pakistan is also participating in a big way in the show
with its latest submarines and surface vessels such as the
French-origin Agusta 70 B `Khalid` submarine, Zulfiquar F-22P
missile frigates and the Jalalat Fast Attack Craft.
Over 150 global arms manufacturers and armed forces are
participating in the show.
