India, U.S. first tri-services exercise Tiger Triumph begins
On 13 Nov, the nine day humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) exercise code-named ‘Tiger Triumph’ began in Visakhapatnam. It aimed at developing inter-operability between the militaries of the two countries in HADR operations. The Harbour Phase will take place at Visakhapatnam from November 13 to 16. The exercise will include staff-planning events as well as field training that simulate moving a humanitarian assistance/disaster relief force from ship to shore. The exercise will provide opportunity for professional and cultural exchanges at all levels that expand common ground and demonstrate the strength of the U.S.-India relationship. Indian Naval ships Jalashwa, Airavat and Sandhayak will be part of the exercise. Both sides are also looking forward for joint venture and collaboration between private sectors of the two countries in defence manufacturing.
