L&T Developing Bond-Style Mini-Sub For Navy?

Indian private firm Larsen & Toubro indicates it is designing and building a swimmer delivery vehicle (SDV). This poster was up at the L&T stand at DefExpo. Under development by L&T Heavy Engineering, this image depicts it as a dry type delivery vehicle for up to four marine commandos.

Love how it reminds me of this.

Executives I spoke to at the stand said it was being developed and built in-house and would be offered to the Indian Navy once it was complete (like the Adamya AUV).

Separately, it is known that in 2012, the Indian MoD approved a navy requirement of four special operational vessels (SOVs) for the MARCOS, apparently to be built at the Hindustan Shipyard Ltd in Visakhapatnam. It is not clear if L&T is involved with that classified programme.

SUBJECT : DEFENCE LAND SCAM IN INDIA, THE LATEST AND MOST RECENT WORTH RS. 300 CRORES, APPROXIMATELY.

Corruption in India is at its peak. Amardeep, an employee of Legal Department of M/s. LANCO, Gurgaon & others cheated, Cantonment Board, by providing fake details, regarding Late Kamla Kumari’s death, & not submitting Death Certificate issued by SGPIMS, Lucknow to them. Cantt. Board, Allahabad issued to Amardeep Jaiswal & others a fake Death Certificate, without probing the truth, & closed their eyes deliberately, for pecuniary benefits. In the Death Certificate they should have stated the place of death as Lucknow & not Allahabad & the truth is that she was in a highly precarious state & was in coma since a few days & died on 3/2/96, at 1.30 pm at the SGPGIMS, Lucknow, as per its Death Certificate re-issued on 30/06/2000. Forged Death Certificate issued by Cantt. Board, Allahabad, is being misused for fraudulent land deals, for substitution of names in place of late K.K. Jaiswal, for transfer of lease renewal deed & mutation, for 2 & 3, Cassels Road, New Cantt., Allahabad & must be cancelled at once. Action should be taken against them for cheating Cantt. Board. Thereafter they started grabbing Army Land illegally & for these irregularities, Cantt. Board / D.E.O., Allahabad are fully responsible.
