Mahin­dra De­fence has signed an MoU with ShinMaywa In­dus­tries Ltd of Ja­pan to set up MRO ser­vices/man­u­fac­tur­ing and as­sem­bling of struc­tural parts and com­po­nents for the US-2 am­phib­ian air­craft. As Ya­suo Kawan­ishi, Di­rec­tor, ShinMaywa In­dus­tries Lim­ited stated, “This is a ver­sa­tile air­craft ideally suited for In­dian con­di­tions. The US-2 with its un­matched ca­pa­bil­ity is considered to be ex­tremely use­ful for strength­en­ing the safety and se­cu­rity of SLOCs, long range fleet sup­port and is­land/off shore as­sets (both over­seas and coastal) sup­port func­tions. These mis­sions when com­bined in a sin­gle mul­ti­modal plat­form such as the US-2 can earn for In­dia the pre­cious good­will of na­tions of the In­dian Ocean re­gion com­men­su­rate with its iden­tity as a re­spon­si­ble ris­ing power. Ja­pan Mar­itime De­fence Force have ex­ten­sively used this air­craft for many years now.”
