Malabar War Games – Naval Exercise

Malabar War Games - Naval Exercise

The Malabar War Games is a trilateral navel exercise which takes places annually between India, United States of America and Japan. This year, the exercises are scheduled to begin on July 10, in the Northern Indian Ocean.  The focus for this year is on Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW).

The Malabar war games are strategically significant for India as Beijing very recently deployed one of their submarines in the Indian Ocean region, with the Indian Navy picking up information of an ‘unusual surge’ in the number of Chinese vessels entering the region
