Maritime Exercise SLINEX to be conducted from 7-10 March

On March 7, the warships of India and Sri Lanka began a four-day maritime exercise called SLINEX (Sri Lanka India Naval Exercise) to improve operational collaboration.

• SLINEX symbolises India and Sri Lanka’s extensive maritime engagement, which has increased in the breadth over the years to deepen mutual collaboration in line with India’s ‘Neighborhood First’ policy.

• SLINEX is in its eighth edition. The previous edition of SLINEX took place off the coast of Trincomalee in October 2020.

• The exercise is divided into two parts: the port phase, which takes place at Visakhapatnam on March 7-8, and the sea phase, which takes place in the Bay of Bengal on March 9-10.

• For the exercise, the Indian Navy has deployed the guided-missile corvette, INS Kirch, the fleet support tanker INS Jyoti, and a fleet of Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) Sea King and Chetak helicopters, as well as Dornier maritime patrol planes.

• The Sri Lankan Navy is represented by the modern offshore patrol vessel SLNS Sayurala.

• The SLINEX is intended to increase interoperability, mutual understanding, and the sharing of best practices and procedures for multi-faceted maritime operations between the two militaries.

• Surface and anti-air weapon fire exercises, seamanship evolutions, cross-deck flying, advanced tactical manoeuvres, and special forces operations at sea will all take place during the sea phase.
