The Indian Navy recently showcased its operational prowess by conducting a significant two-aircraft carrier battle group (CBG) operation in the Arabian Sea. This demonstration involved over 35 aircraft and is considered one of the largest displays of naval capabilities in recent years. The exercise comes in response to China's increased presence in the Indian Ocean region.

 

The successful integration of the INS Vikramaditya and the newly commissioned INS Vikrant, along with other fleet ships and submarines, highlights the Indian Navy's ability to effectively utilize sea-based air power. Through this exercise, India aims to solidify its position as a preferred security partner in the Indian Ocean and beyond, while enhancing maritime security and power projection.

Two aircraft carriers, multiple warships, submarines and over 35 frontline planes were used in the mega operation


This milestone exercise marks the first joint operation involving the two aircraft carriers since the induction of the indigenously-built INS Vikrant in September. Nearly all of the Navy's air assets operated from these carriers, effectively transforming them into mobile bases. The exercise demonstrated their capability to be deployed flexibly and respond promptly to emerging threats, enabling sustained air operations to protect national interests globally.

 

In a recent achievement for the indigenous aircraft carrier INS Vikrant, a MiG-29K fighter successfully performed a night landing on its spacious deck in the Arabian Sea. This challenging trial highlighted the skill, professionalism, and determination of the naval pilots and crew. The INS Vikrant, weighing 45,000 tonnes, is expected to achieve full operational status with its air wing by early next year.

Furthermore, an MH 60 'Romeo' helicopter, which is awaiting induction into service, accomplished its maiden landings on a naval ship at sea. The helicopter, originating from the INS Garuda Kochi naval air station, executed successful landings on the indigenously designed and constructed naval destroyer INS Kolkata in the Arabian Sea near Kochi.

 

Overall, these developments underline the Indian Navy's commitment to enhancing its maritime capabilities, safeguarding national interests, and responding effectively to emerging challenges in the Indian Ocean region and beyond.
