Notes

    !#! - Sri Lanka has a large number of small vessels. The Sri Lanka Navy website is chock full of information, but unlike a normal navy, provides no systematic depiction of the vessels. The situation with the larger vessels is well characterized, but the situation with speed-boats - vessels of around 100 tons or below, is poorly characterized in the open literature.

    1 - Sri Lanka reportedly leased the Indian CGS Varaha in 2007, giving it the name SLNS Sagara. The SIPRI Trade Register suggests that another vessel might have been leased to or considered to have been leased to Sri Lanka in 2008.

    2 - Requisitioned for patrol and training duties from Sri Lankan fishermen in 2005 following the aftermath of tsunami in 2004.

    3 - The SLNS Parakramabahu was significantly damaged during the tsunami in 2004, though it technically remained in inventory. Its operational status was still questionable as of 2011.

    4 - In the late 2000s, Sri Lanka acquired at least one additional catamaran fast personnel transport (A 543; name unknown), but it was unclear what the source was. Though given a hull number to suggest its relation to the Hansaya class craft acquired from Australia, A 543 was visibly different and notably larger.

    5 - First 2 craft in this class, lost in 1992 and 1998 respectively, were built in Singapore by Vosper Pty. The other 2 craft in this class were built in Sri Lanka.
