Myanmar Navy received a national-built patrol ship

In Yangon, December 24, a ceremony was held to introduce to the Myanmar Navy a head patrol ship of a new type of Inlay (board number "54"), built at the Myanmar naval shipyard in Sinmalaik, reports bmpd.

Commissioning of the ship was timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the founding of Myanmar (Burmese) fleet.

“The characteristics of the Inlay patrol ship are not exactly known, but it has been reported that it has a length of 81 m. The total displacement is estimated at about 1500 tons. The ship is armed with a Chinese 57-mm 66 twin-engine automatic artillery, apparently removed from one of the old Chinese small anti-submarine ships of the 037 project (the Myanmar navy consisted of ten 037 ships received from the PRC at the beginning of the 1990), ” in the material.

In 2015, the Myanmar media reported on plans to build a series of ten Innlay-type patrol ships.

Myanmar is aggressively developing its own military shipbuilding. Earlier, two relatively simple Anawrahta and Bayinnaung corvettes were built in Sinmalaik, commissioned in 2001-2003, and then three more frigates of a better design - F 11 Aung Zeya, F 12 Kyan Sittha (commissioned in 2011 and 2014 years ), F 14 Sin Phyu Shin (2015 year), and a large corvette of the new type Tabinshwehti (December 2016 year).

Ships are built with technical assistance from China and the DPRK.

    Dashing trouble began - even with the Chinese, but they will create a fleet for themselves! Although, I would recommend them to Thailand, or Malaysia for cooperation! Cheaper even than the Chinese, and the Malaysians are building very high quality!

    "Ships are being built with the technical assistance of the PRC and DPRK," or rather, it’s the Soviet developments of the late forties (assistance to China) + China in the late 60s and early 70s acquired several gatekeepers in Germany through intermediaries. Once in the “New Time” (?) Or in the “Red Arrival” there was a publication about the Chinese Navy.
