Indian Coast Guard is on a roll. NetIndian is reporting they have just commissioned their eighth new Inshore Patrol Vessel, CGS Rajdhwaj, essentially a fast response cutter, except that theirs is a bit larger, faster, and more heavily armed. Doesn’t have quite the range though. The ship is the last in the series of eight.

The first of these Rajshree-class Inshore Patrol Vessels was commissioned only in Feb. 2012.
