Alliance at Sea: Indian and French Navies Strengthen Ties

The Eastern Naval Command of the Indian Navy extends a warm welcome to the crews of two French aircraft, Atlantique 2 Maritime Patrol Aircraft and Airbus A400 French Transport Aircraft, as they arrive at INS Dega in Visakhapatnam. This visit marks an important milestone in the ongoing partnership between the Indian and French navies, with a focus on enhancing interoperability through joint exercises.

The Atlantique 2 aircraft, operated by the French Navy’s Flottille 23F, brings with it a skilled air crew eager to engage in professional interactions with the Indian Navy’s Dornier Squadron, INAS 311, stationed at INS Dega. These interactions aim to foster mutual understanding and pave the way for coordinated multi-domain operations.

Both the Indian Navy’s P8I Long Range Maritime Patrol aircraft and the French Atlantique 2 have previously participated in combined exercises over the Bay of Bengal. These exercises are instrumental in promoting synergy and interoperability between the two naval forces, thereby enhancing their ability to operate seamlessly in the maritime domain.

The presence of French naval assets in Indian waters underscores the growing significance of collaborative efforts in ensuring security and stability in the Indo-Pacific region. It highlights the commitment of both navies as “Net Security Providers” in the region, working together to address common security challenges.

Beyond their strategic implications, the joint exercises between the Indian and French navies serve as a symbol of friendship and cooperation between the two nations. They strengthen the bonds of partnership and solidarity, further cementing the relationship between India and France on the global stage.
