Commander-in-Chief witnesses amphibious exercise staged by the Andaman & Nicobar Command at Swaraj Dweep




On February 28, President Ram Nath Kovind witnessed a Joint Services Operational Demonstration at the Radhanagar beach, Swaraj Dweep, in which the Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) demonstrated its multi-dimensional operational capabilities, including an amphibious landing.

 


Fourteen ships of the Indian Navy, two Fast Attack Craft (FAC) of the Coast Guard, assorted aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF) and an army landing contingent of 300 troops with six BMPs infantry combat vehicles showcased the combat power of the India’s only tri-service command.

 



The demonstration included combat free fall and helo-casting by marine commandoes (MARCOS), special heliborne operations (SHBO) and amphibious assault by infantry troops. 

 


Also demonstrated was naval gun fire support (NGFS), counter surface force operations (CSFO), search and rescue (SAR) operations and vertical replenishment. Amphibious landing was carried out by Landing Ship Tank (Medium) and Landing Craft Utility.
