Exercise La Perouse will have people, ships, and helicopters from the Royal Australian Navy, the French Navy, the Indian Navy, the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, the Royal Navy, and the United States Navy. From March 13 to 14, the Indian Ocean Region will be the site of the third La Perouse multilateral exercise.
The French Navy runs the exercise La Perouse every two years. The goal, according to a press release from the Ministry of Defense, is to improve maritime domain awareness and improve coordination between the participating navies in the Indo-Pacific region.
According to the press release, the two-day exercise gives similar navies a chance to get closer in terms of planning, coordination, and sharing information for smooth maritime operations.
Exercise La Perouse will include complex and advanced naval operations, such as surface warfare, anti-air warfare, air defence exercises, cross-deck landings, and tactical manoeuvres.
The Indian Navy’s guided missile frigate INS Sahyadri and fleet tanker INS Jyoti will take part in the third round of the multilateral exercise. The fact that the Indian Navy took part in the exercise shows how well the friendly navies work together, how well they can work together, and how committed they are to a rules-based international order in the Indo-Pacific region.
Earlier, the Indian Navy’s guided missile frigate, INS Sahyadri, which was made in India, took part in a Maritime Partnership Exercise (MPX) in the Arabian Sea with the French Navy’s FS Dixmude, a Mistral Class Amphibious Assault Ship, and FS La Fayette, a La Fayette Class Frigate. March 10–11 was the date of the partnership exercise.
The Ministry of Defense says that during the exercise, a wide range of things happened at sea, such as cross-deck landings, boarding exercises, and seamanship evolutions. The fact that the exercise went off without a hitch showed that the two navies work well together and can work together well.
