    Khulna Shipyard is set to build two modern Landing Craft Utility (LCU) and two inland container ships for the Bangladesh Navy.

    The 42 metre long, LCU’s are powered by two 600 horsepower engines and have a carrying capacity of 415 tons.

    The LCU’s will be used for amphibious assault operations carried out jointly by the Bangladesh Army and Navy.

    Vice Admiral Farid Habib attended the keel laying ceremony alongside other senior naval officials.

    Khulna Shipyard (KSY) recently constructed 5 Coastal Patrol Craft (CPC) for the Bangladesh Navy for the first time with technical support from China’s CSOC.

    KSY plans to offer warships for export in the future.

    Someone have already shown the pictures in other threads. We do not have to show them again to shut the ego of Indian big mouths.

    Awesome. I was in Dhaka last Feb and took a ferry from Sadarghat down Buri Ganga. Was very impressed with the busy industries on both sides of the river.

    Look up the thread title ....STEEL CUTTING CEREMONY OF 2 LCU AND 2 INLAND CONTAINER VESSELS

    Source: http://www.defence.pk/forums/bangla...2-inland-container-vessels.html#ixzz2f8vMDn29

    Na why would photos be prohibited? It's just a jetty, has no military function.

    Are baba, these were brick kilns, boat and ferry building workshops, a cement factory etc. Nothing a Raw Agent would be really interested in!!!.....:). But the river traffic was really impressive, it was like a busy highway.

    The way BN fleet is expanding and the way KSY is building battle ships, it seems soon we will lose track of the total BN vessels. We already have.

    But during war this surface fleet will do nothing if there's no support from under the water...when are we going to build our sub fleet?
