Naval manoeuvres in a rough monsoon sea, cross deck flying and crew exchange were some of the highlights of the trilateral "Malabar" naval exercise between India, the U.S. and Japan in the Bay of Bengal.
The naval exercise featured 95 aircraft, 16 ships and two submarines, officials said in a statement.
The US, Japanese and Indian navies on July 10 began the Malabar Naval Exercise 2017 aimed at achieving deeper military ties between the three nations. The helicopter from JN Sazanami undertook flying operations from INS Sahyadri and USS Shoup.
An Indian Navy Sea King helicopter undertook transfer of Japanese personnel to INS Vikramaditya as part of crew exchange programme during the exercise.
Though on record officers of the three countries insist the operations are all about interoperability and jointmanship to work together from humanitarian aid disaster relief to anti-piracy, scratch beneath the surface they admit the exercise is an attempt to send out a signal to an increasingly belligerent China. It was followed by flying operations undertaken by the helicopters of the US Navy ships.
