The partnership exercise put INS Tabar together with an NH 90 helicopter from FNS Aquitaine and four Rafale fighters from the French Navy. During the event, operations were undertaken including surface manoeuvres, replenishment at sea approach, firing on target, Vertical Replenishment and cross-deck activity. The ship and its crew have now completed the exercise successfully said the spokesperson of the Indian Navy. The exercise was meant to be mutually beneficial in enhancing interoperability of both the countries and towards conducting combined operations against maritime threats.

"INS Tabar undertook maritime partnership exercise with French Navy Frigate FS Aquitaine in the Bay of Biscay on 15-16 Jul," the tweet from the Indian Navy spokesperson said. Earlier this month, the seventh edition of the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium (IONS) was also hosted by the French Navy at La Reunion in Italy. The event was joined by officers from the Indian Navy.

Admiral Karambir Singh, Chief of the Naval Staff had participated virtually in the inaugural session of the three-day event. IONS, conceived by the Indian Navy in 2008, seeks to enhance maritime cooperation among Navies of the littoral states of the IOR by providing an open and inclusive forum for discussion of regionally relevant maritime issues that would lead to a common understanding on the way ahead.
