Images: Pirate Hunter INS Cankarso
StratPost recently got a chance to visit the INS Cankarso, a Car Nicobar-class Water Jet Fast Attack Craft. Built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers [GRSE], the vessel was commissioned in June last year.
The Cankarso was deployed to Operation Island Watch and captured 15 pirates while rescuing 20 crew from the Thai fishing trawler Prantalay 14, which was being used as a mother ship by the pirates. In the firefight, the trawler was sunk.
