new Delhi. The Landing Craft Utility (LCU) Mark Four Warship was inducted into the Navy on Friday. Commander-in-Chief of Andaman-Nicobar Command in Port Blair, Lieutenant General P.S. Rajeshwar enlisted this warship in the Navy.
This is the seventh ship in the LCU Mark Four category, included in the Navy. This warship has been prepared by Garden Rich Ship Builders and Engineers Limited (GRSE) in Kolkata.
This is why it is important for the Navy
The INLCU L57 can prove to be very effective for the Indian Navy. Its biggest feature is that it can run easily on both water and land. With large ships in the deep sea, this war tank, armored carriages and other military goods will reach the coast in a short time and safe.
GRSE said, “INLCU L, the first ship of Mark Four LCU, joined the Navy in 51 March 2017.” The design of LCU Mark Four Ship has been designed keeping in mind the requirements of the Navy. The first warship of this series was inducted into the Navy in 2017, three years ago. The Navy will soon get another similar ship.
