    excellent. good to see MoD repositions itself to meet the needs of the country after the defeat of the LTTE. good to focus on power projections.

    Sri lanka needs to enhance its naval operational capabilities. need to introduce more heavy weapons. and induct newer submarines to keep tap of the ocean.

    Sri lanka should focus on developing atleast 12-15 new submarines before the end of the decade.
