India and the United States to begin two-day major naval drill in the Indian Ocean


The defence ministry announced on Tuesday that the Indian Naval Ships (INS) Kochi and Teg, as well as P-8I and MiG-29K aircraft, will participate in a Passage Exercise with the USS Ronald Reagan during its passage through the Indian Ocean Region. The two-day exercise will begin on Wednesday and will highlight the two fleets’ increased operational collaboration, according to authorities.

The warships will participate in joint multi-domain operations with the carrier strike group, which includes the Nimitz class aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Halsey, and Ticonderoga class guided-missile cruiser USS Shiloh, according to the ministry.

A carrier strike group is a huge naval fleet that includes an aircraft carrier as well as destroyers, frigates, and other ships.

Advanced air defence drills, cross deck helicopter operations, and anti-submarine exercises are among the high-tempo actions planned for the two-day exercise. Officials stated the participating troops will work to improve their warfighting skills and interoperability as an integrated force in order to ensure maritime peace, security, and stability.

Regular bilateral and multilateral exercises between the Indian Navy and the US Navy highlight their common ideals as partner navies in guaranteeing commitment to an open, inclusive, and rule-based international order.

Jaguars and Su-30 MKI fighters, as well as AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System) and air-to-air refueller aircraft, will take part in the exercise, according to the air force.

The US carrier strike group is anticipated to deploy F-18 fighters and E-2C Hawkeye aircraft, according to a release, and the exercise will take place south of Thiruvananthapuram.
