India to Gift Dornier Plane to Seychelles
India will soon gift a Dornier maritime patrol plane to Seychelles, an Indian Ocean island nation that enjoys close ties with the South Asian giant, to make it capable of carrying out surveillance in its waters against pirates and maritime terror groups. The Do-228 plane, built by the Defence Public Sector Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), will be presented to Seychelles President James Michel on January 31 by Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony. Last February, India and Seychelles had signed an agreement for two HAL-built Dorniers and India promised to deliver the planes before 2014. However, India is delivering the first plane a year ahead of schedule.
