Russian-Indian naval maneuvers starts in Arabian Sea

Russian-Indian naval maneuvers starts in Arabian Sea 26.01.2009
Russian-Indian INDRA 2009 naval exercises kick off today in Arabian Sea.

The Russian side will be represented in the exercises by five battle ships: the nuclear-powered GM heavy cruiser Piotr Vilikiy, the big frigate Admiral Vinogradov, the rescue tug boat Fotiy Krylov, and the tankers Pechenga and Boris Butoma.

Reports in the mass media about the participation of the large landing ships Azov and Yamal have yet to be confirmed officially.

The exercises are aimed at drilling the escorting of ships at sea, the fight against pirates at sea and against terrorism. The exercises will also drill communication, as well as mutual coordination between the two navies. Missile and artillery firing are planned.
