The INS Cankarso. If you have never heard of it, you must be one of the good guys. If you happen to be a pirate ship operating off the coast of India or Africa, it’s a name you will never forget. This very ship we're on engaged and sank a pirate ship off the coast of Lakshwadeep in January 2011. The INS Cankarso is no ordinary navy ship. Designed to take on a very specific role, it is a boat engineered to meet a very contrasting set of demands. Built specially for the navy by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers (GRSE) in Kolkata to fight piracy, terrorism and all manner of shallow-water threats, this boat is fast, manoeuvrable, well armed and has the ability sail in water no more than three metres deep. Like all patrol craft, the Cankarso has also been designed to have massive endurance and range; which makes attaining all the other objectives pretty difficult. And there lies the engineering challenge.
