Vice Admiral Atul Kumar Jain FOC-in-C Eastern Naval Command (ENC) reviewed the operational preparedness and combat-readiness of Eastern Fleet at sea over four days. 22 ships of the Eastern Fleet participated in the Operational Readiness Inspection. During the review, force protection against asymmetric attacks, weapon firings, anti-submarine drills including torpedo firings and fleet manoeuvres were demonstrated under realistic conditions. The fleet was put through paces to showcase the multi-dimensional warfare capabilities in protecting the vast maritime borders and offshore assets of the country. Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, the Eastern Fleet has maintained a very high ops tempo to meet all national tasking in and beyond the Indian Ocean Region, including events in wake of the Galwan crisis.
