Doxa in asia

Post by koimaster » January 11th 2022, 7:07pm

Establishment of the DOXA factory in Le Locle, under the name «Georges Ducommun, Fabriques Doxa».

The DOXA SUB watches are the official watch of the Elite Diving Troops of the Swiss Army.

The maritime branch of the Army maintains a flotilla of military patrol boats to secure several sizeable lakes that span Switzerland's borders. These boats also serve in a search and rescue role.

During the Second World War Switzerland fielded the Type 41 class of patrol boats, armed with an anti-tank rifle (later replaced by 20mm auto-cannons) and dual machine guns. Nine units were commissioned between 1941 and 1944. These boats were upgraded in 1964, notably receiving radars, radios and modern armament, and were kept in service into the 1980s, the last being decommissioned in late 1983.

The force utilises later the Aquarius-class (Patrouillenboot 80) riverine patrol boats, which are operated by Motorboat Company 10 of the Corps of Engineers and which patrol lakes Geneva, Lucerne, Lugano, Maggiore and Constance.[33]

In June 2019 Finnish shipbuilder Marine Alutech delivered first four of 14 Patrouillenboot 16, the Patrouillenboot 80's successor, to the flotilla and these boats's manufacturer designation as Watercat 1250 Patrol,all ships of this class will be named for astronomical object.

Wow!, the “elite” army divers 993kg%
