Mini Submarine for the Great Escape from Sri Lanka

by OldSailor on April 27, 2009


News reports are coming that Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Chief Velupillai Prabhakaran

Even if he tries to escape, it may not be possible to hide himself from the Sri Lanka Navy’s well-fortified Naval blockade of the entire sea facing the Mullaitivu coastline with their Fast Attack Craft (FACs), Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs), Fast Gun Boats (FGBs), the Rapid Action Boat Squadron (RABS) and the Special Boat Squadron (SBS).

In January, Sri Lanka Navy has captured enough boats and mini submarines that were in possession of LTTE. The largest underwater vehicle captured was about 35 feet in length and armour plated (Photo of mini submarine above is from DOD, Sri Lanka).

From where these mini submarines have come ?
