INS Tarkashโ€™s overseas deployment

In a move to increase its presence in the Indian Ocean, the Indian Navyโ€™s INS Tarkash visited the South American nation Brazil to hoist the National Flag on August 15 as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav which was launched to celebrate 75 years of Indiaโ€™s Independence.

Notably, last month on July 26, according to the Indian Navy, the ship participated in a Maritime Partnership Exercise in the Atlantic with Royal Morocco Naval Ship Hassan 2, a Floreal Class Corvette. The Indian warship between July 29 and July 30 conducted a Maritime Partnership Exercise with French Naval Ships in the North Atlantic Ocean which showcased interoperability between the two navies.

Earlier on July 8, INS Tarkash visited Djibouti as part of her long-range overseas deployment followed by a Maritime Partnership Exercise with the Sudan Navy. The warship then went to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to hoist the tricolour in South America on the occasion as part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. 

INS Tarkash also conducted a Maritime Partnership Exercise with Sudan Navy ships Almazz (PC 411) and Nimer (PC 413) in the Red Sea near the Sudan Naval Base on 07 July 2022, the Ministry of Defence informed. The exercise included manoeuvres, flying operations for vertical replenishment, visit and board operations, and communication procedures. It provided an opportunity for the exchange of professional experiences and to strengthen maritime cooperation between the two countries.
