NEW DELHI: Last week, the Indian Navy showcased its maritime capabilities in the Arabian Sea, one that involved two carrier battle groups in the first such operation in over a decade. Two aircraft carriers—INS Vikramaditya and INS Vikrant—operated in the exercise that had the coordinated deployment of more than 30 combat aircraft. A carrier battle group projects power and sends out a strong message to the adversary as well, says Vice Admiral Shekhar Sinha (Retd), former Commander-in-Chief of the Western Naval Command. He was speaking to StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale on ‘The Gist’.
