CGS Barracuda

Last week the CGS Barracuda arrived in Port Louis. The 1,350 tons corvette* was built at Garden Reach shipyard, Kolkata, India at a cost of (Mauritian) Rs1.8 billion ($60 million). It is the first naval vessel exported by India.

*This corvette was first called an Offshore Patrol Vessel, OPV, but the (more sexy?) term Multi Purpose Vessel is now preferred.
