The Myanmar Navy commissioned seven new vessels into service on 24 December 2017, the serviceâ€™s 70th anniversary.
The vessels included an offshore patrol vessel (OPV), named UMS Inlay (54), two 56 m landing craft utility (LCU) vessels (1614 and 1615), as well as four 29 m landing craft tank (LCT) vessels (1713â€“1716).
Inlay was built at Thanlyin Naval Dockyard near Yangon with the help of technical assistance and equipment provided by Singapore-based companies. Launched by late November 2015, Inlay had been very largely completed by April 2017.
The OPV is approximately 81 m long with a beam of about 12.5 m and is understood to displace at least 1,500 tons.
