India-UK tri-services, bilateral Exercise Konkan Shakti 2021 successfully concludes

The Indian and UK armies, navies and air forces concluded their maiden, bilateral, tri-service exercise -- Konkan Shakti 2021 -- on 27 October 2021. It was pronounced an unequivocal success.


The exercise involved “replenishment at sea” practice, strike operations by fighter aircraft, cross control of helicopters, simulated induction of army troops, gun shoots on expendable air targets, advanced air and sub-surface exercises, composite helicopter formation fly-past and large force engagement involving fighter aircraft of the UK (F35B), Indian Navy (MiG 29K) and Indian Air Force (SU-30 and Jaguar).

 “All of this reflected high synergy, professionalism and readiness of both nations to conduct joint maritime operations, when required,” stated the Indian ministry of defence (MoD) on Thursday, 28th Nov 2021.


“Smooth execution of the first edition of the exercise is testimony to the professional abilities, mutual understanding and shared commitment of the two nations and their personnel in uniform,” said the MoD.


Spanning over four days, the exercise saw the two defence forces work cohesively through a series of complex, multi-service combat drills in all domains of maritime operations - air, surface and sub-surface


“The exercise provided both forces the opportunity to share best practices and experiences with each other in a collaborative spirit that is particularly important in the complex and unpredictable global security environment,” said the Indian MoD.
