New Delhi: The Indian Navy will boost its capability to take the battle literally to the enemy's shores with the placing of a $430 million (Rs. 2,100 crore) order Friday for eight Landing Craft Utility (LCU) with the Kolkata-based Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE).

"The Indian Navy has signed a contract with GRSE for construction of eight LCU's at a cost of Rs 2,100 crore," a navy spokesperson said here.

The first ship under the contract will be delivered in 35 months or around March 2014. The 800-ton LCU is propelled by two diesel engines and can carry main battle tanks, armoured personnel carriers, and fully armed troopers in various combinations.
