India to showcase INS Betwa in Doha exhibition

The 3,600 - ton INS Betwa is powered by two steam turbines and capable of speeds in excess of 30 knots.

NEW DELHI (PTI): Showcasing its ship-building prowess, the Indian Navy is sending its missile frigate INS Betwa to a maritime defence systems exhibition in Doha from March 28 to April 3.

"INS Betwa will represent India at the Doha International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference 2010 in Qatar and showcase India's capability of building warships on its own," Navy officials said on Tuesday.

India has indigenised and developed its shipbuilding capabilities and is now making big-size warships such as the 38,000 tonne Indigenous Aircraft Carrier also, they added.

Along with the Navy, the other significant Indian exhibitors at the show would be the BrahMos Aerospace Corporation and the Goa Shipyard Limited.

Pakistan is also participating in a big way in the show with its latest submarines and surface vessels such as the French-origin Agusta 70 B 'Khalid' submarine, Zulfiquar F-22P missile frigates and the Jalalat Fast Attack Craft.

Over 150 global arms manufacturers and armed forces are participating in the show.
