ENC month-long exercise concludes

The Eastern Naval Command Operational Readiness Exercise (ENCORE), Theatre Level Readiness and Operational Exercise concluded on the Eastern Seaboard on Wednesday.

The month-long exercise saw participation of over 40 ships and submarines, including ships from the Western Naval Command, Andaman & Nicobar Command and Indian Coast Guard and assorted naval and IAF aircraft including fighters, long range maritime reconnaissance (LRMP) aircraft, Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) and Air Early Warning (AEW), Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) helicopters.

The exercise was conducted in phases to test various facets of war-fighting capabilities of the combat units including Special Forces of ENC to respond to given threat situations.

The tactical phase saw intense action by both the opposing forces helping to validate operational war fighting concepts and provide valuable lessons to sharpen combat skills.

The exercise was conducted in real time covering a vast expanse of Indian Ocean Region (IOR) notwithstanding the rough weather due to super cyclone Cebile in the Southern IOR.

ENCORE assumes great significance in the backdrop of current security scenario. The exercise provided an apt-opportunity to test the combat capability of the ENC and refine action plans.
