    TEMPO.CO, Banyuwangi - The ship-making industry of Banyuwangi regency has bagged another opportunity to export its ships. One of the regency's producers of high-tech ships, Lundin Industry, is exporting its carbo-tech rigid inflatable boat (RIB) to Russia.

    The ship was tested on the waters off Bali Strait today, March 12. Banyuwangi Regent Abdullah Azwar Anas and Lundin Industry director John Lundin took part in the sea trail.

    Lundin said the ship's hull measured 38 feet, making it the fastest ship in Indonesia, and possibly even Asia.

    "The speed reaches up to 85 knots (160 kmH). It is designed to withstand forces above G7," Lundin said.

    According to Lundin, Russia ordered seven units of the ships, and five have been sent.

    "Today we tested the sixth ship," he said, adding that the sixth and seventh ships have a maximum speed of 85 knots while the other five have a maximum speed between 50 and 60 knots.

    Two other carbo-tech ship models produced by Lundin, he said, have also been used by the military in Sweden and Russia.

    "We receive many orders for the military, such as from Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore," he said.

    Can its speed benefit coast guards? is that high speed is more beneficial than other boats?

    such Ships are for Patrolling the Lanes , keeping pirates away .. but add AntiShip missiles and you can have a deadly ship which can shoot and scoot without been detected easily from enemy radars .
