Looks like the Thai's put a pie-wrench to KP's balls and bang go the puskotiya rust buckets.

The Navy's contribution to preservation of fishing grounds by providing a regular feed of artificial reef and fresh meat is highly commendable.

Navy's intelligence has improved tremendously thanks to some self-less intelligence officers who have risked their lives to obtain intel on LTTE. The 6 ships were destroyed using 100% local resources and sources.
