SAC Chairman Defence Services C-in-C Senior General Min Aung Hlaing attends ceremonies to commission war vessels into services for Tatmadaw (Navy), hand over war vessels to Myanmar Coast Guard

Ceremonies to commission war vessels into services for Tatmadaw (Navy) and hand over war vessels to the Myanmar Coast Guard took place at No 3 Naval Jetty in Yangon yesterday, attended by Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
Also present were Daw Kyu Kyu Hla, wife of the Senior General, retired commanders-in-chief (Navy) and (Air) and their wives, Chief of the General Staff (Army, Navy and Air) General Maung Maung Aye and wife, Commander-in-Chief (Navy) Admiral Moe Aung and wife, Commander-in-Chief (Air) General Tun Aung and wife, Union-level officials and Union ministers and their wives, Russian Ambassador to Myanmar Mr Nikolay Listopadov, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy Vice-Admiral Igor Mukhametshin and party, senior military officers, Tatmadaw members and families of Tatmadaw (Navy).
Chief of Staff (Navy) Vice-Admiral Zwe Win Myint reported on facts about the commissioning of warships. The commander of Naval Dockyard Command handed over documents related to warships to the commander of the Naval Fleet. Likewise, the commander of Panmawady Naval Command presented documents related to warships handed over by Tatmadaw (Navy) to the director-general of the Myanmar Coast Guard.
The Commander-in-Chief (Navy) presented scale models of war vessels and the emblem to mark war vessels commissioned within 11 years to the Senior General.
The Senior General and party viewed round two landing craft utilities, one water tanker and two fast patrol crafts commissioned into service for Tatmadaw (Navy) and vessels handed over to the Myanmar Coast Guard as well as submarine Minye Theinkhathu.
The Senior General from warship Mottama took a salute of the Guard of Honour and inspected it. Meanwhile, war vessels Yan Taing Aung and Yan Gyi Aung conducted a 21-shot salute.
Three frigates, one corvette, offshore patrol craft, fast patrol craft and fast attack crafts in single line formation and line abreast formation saluted the Senior General.
The Senior General presented certificates of honour and cash awards to officers and other ranks who participated in the saluting ceremony and ship-building projects through officials.
In his address, the Senior General said that on the significant occasion, the fifth and the sixth Super Dvora fast patrol crafts, two landing craft utilities and one water tanker were commissioned into service for the Tatmadaw (Navy) as part of adding further strengths. Currently, Tatmadaw (Navy) is able to build missile carrier frigates on its own.
Now, Tatmadaw (Navy) is at the level of Three Dimensional Combat Ready Navy with a prospect to be Adjacent Force Projection Navy/ Regional Navy and then to be Blue Water Navy Ambition. As such, it is necessary to build large and powerful war vessels to have the capability to become Adjacent Force Projection Navy/ Regional Navy. Hence, training must always be given to naval men to have combat power and combat capacity for handling advanced warships so that Tatmadaw (Navy) possesses higher combat power.
As Tatmadaw (Navy) has experience in building Super Dvora crafts, it is necessary to build further war vessels with larger sizes and high capacity. As the sea shapes the future interests of the State, Tatmadaw (Navy) is primarily responsible for protecting the sea. As the diamond jubilee Tatmadaw (Navy) Day falls today, Tatmadaw (Navy) is marching to the ambition with the reliance of the State and Tatmadaw and people thanks to the fine traditions of Tatmadaw members who built war vessels.
Then, the Senior General left No 3 Naval Jetty for Ayeyawady Naval Command Headquarters by war vessel Yadanabon. On the way, the Senior General and wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla cut the birthday cake to mark the Diamond Jubilee Tatmadaw (Navy) Day onboard the vessel.
Commander-in-Chief (Navy) Admiral Moe Aung presented diamond jubilee Tatmadaw (Navy) day emblems to the Senior General, retired commanders-in-chief (Navy), retired commanders-in-chief (Air), and Commander-in-Chief (Air) General Tun Aung respectively.
The Senior General and his wife cut the ribbon to open the Diamond Jubilee Tatmadaw (Navy) Day exhibition and visited there.
The Senior General and party enjoyed the entertainment of the Navy Band, variety show and traditional dances and presented the flower basket and cash awards to them.
Then, they viewed fireworks launched to mark the Diamond Jubilee Tatmadaw (Navy) Day. — MNA
