India-US trade and bilateral ties have been a matter of crucial stance at the moment. But, with the ongoing progress through everything, the armed forces of India and the United States on Wednesday (November 13th, 2019) finally began with their very first tri service exercises happening on the Eastern seaboard.
The nine-day humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) exercise have been titled “Tiger Triumph” and is mainly done to strengthen and better improve the interoperatibility between the armed forces and the militaries between the two countries associated in the HADR operations.
Some of the key assets under the Indian Navy, Army and the Indian Air Force have already been deployed for the exercise.
Three of the most important Indian naval ships, Jalashwa, Airavat and Sandhayak are going to be part of the exercise. Some of the other ones deployed include the MI-17 jets for the exercise as well.
The US, on the other hand, are being represented by the US Navy ship Germantown with the troops from the US Third Marine Division.
With this, the India-US defence ties are on the peak and both the capital cities of the countries, New Delhi and Washington have commented saying that they are looking for further ways to expanding these relations.
Both the sides have also been vocal about the further pushing of the joint ventures involved between the collaboration with the private sectors too. Further results from the same are expected to come around and require further understanding.
