Press Release - First-ever India-USA Tri-Service exercise

Indian and US Defence forces will hold their first tri-services amphibious Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief exercise off the Andhra Pradesh coast from November 13 to 21. The participating elements are from all the three Services and comprise an Army battalion less two Companies, three Ships from the Navy and a Rapid Action Medical Team and Helicopters from the Indian Air Force. They would exercise alongside US Marine Corps and Navy Ships.

The exercise would be undertaken in two phases. The Harbour Phase would be undertaken from 13 to 16 Nov 19 and the Sea Phase would be undertaken from 17 to 21 Nov 19.

The exercise will include events and field training that simulate moving Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief force from ship to shore. This exercise helps build the capacity of both the Indian and US participants, while improving their ability to operate together. It also gives U.S. and Indian forces the opportunity to exchange best practices and share experience.
