About the Indian Navy: The Indian Navy is the naval branch of the Indian Armed Forces. The President of India (Ram Nath Govand) is the Supreme Commander of the Indian Navy. The Chief of Naval Staff (Admiral Karambir Singh), a four-star admiral (most senior commanders in the armed services), commands the navy. The Indian Navy traces its origins back to the East India Company’s Marine which was founded in 1612 to protect British merchant shipping in the region. In 1793, the British East India Company established its rule over the eastern part of the India subcontinent i.e. Bengal, but it was not until 1830 that the colonial navy was titled as His Majesty!-s Indian Navy.
When India became a republic in 1950, the Royal Indian Navy as it had been named since 1934 was renamed to the Indian Navy. March 2018, the operational fleet consists of one aircraft carrier, one amphibious transport dock, eight landing ship tanks, eleven destroyers, fourteen frigates, one nuclear-powered attack submarine, one ballistic missile submarine, fifteen conventionally-powered attack submarines, twenty-two corvettes, one mine countermeasure vessel, four fleet tankers and various other auxiliary vessels.
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands served as an important halt point for trade ships en route to these nations and as well as China. During 844–848 AD the daily revenue from these nations was expected to be around 200 maunds [8 tonnes (7.9 long tons; 8.8 short tons)] of gold. During 984–1042 AD, under the reign of Raja Raja Chola I, Rajendra Chola I, and Kulothunga Chola I, the naval expedition by Chola dynasty captured lands of Burma, Sumatra, Sri Lanka, and Malaya, and simultaneously repressing pirate activities by Sumatran warlords. The origins of the Indian Navy date to 1612, when an English vessel under the command of Captain Best encountered the Portuguese.
Although the Portuguese were defeated, this incident along with the trouble caused by the pirates to the merchant’s vessels, forced the British to maintain fleet near Surat, Gujarat. Even by the war`s end, the Navy remained a predominantly British-officered service; in 1945, no Indian officer held a rank above engineer commander, and no Indian officer in the executive branch held substantive senior line officer rank. This situation, coupled with inadequate levels of training and discipline, poor communication between officers and ratings, instances of racial discrimination, and the ongoing trials of ex-India National Army personnel ignited the Royal Indian Navy mutiny by Indian ratings in 1946. At the outbreak of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, the Navy had one aircraft carrier, two cruisers, nineteen destroyers and frigates, and one tanker. Of these twenty-ships, ten were under refit. The others were largely involved in coastal patrols.
During the war, the Pakistani Navy attacked the Indian coastal city of Dwarka, although there were no military resources in the area. While this attack was insignificant, India deployed naval resources to patrol the coast and deter further bombardment. Following these wars in the 1960s, India resolved to strengthen the profile and capabilities of its Armed Forces.
The Indian Navy was a part of the joint forces exercises, Operation Parakram, during the 2001-2002 India-Pakistan standoff. More than a dozen warships were deployed to the northern Arabian Sea. In October, the Indian Navy took over operations to secure the Strait of Malacca, to relieve US Navy resources for Operation Enduring Freedom. Indian Navy has a specialized training command which is responsible for the organization, conduct, and overseeing of all basic, professional, and specialist training throughout the Navy. The Commander in Chief of Southern Command also serves as the Commander in Chief of Training Command. The Chief of Personnel (CoP) at HQ of the Indian Navy is responsible for the framework of training and exercises the responsibility through Directorate of Naval Training (DNT). The training year of the Indian Navy is defined from 1 July to 30 June of the following year.
Naval Army Arm: The naval air-arm of the Indian Navy currently operates twenty-one air squadrons. Of these, ten operate fixed-wing aircraft, eight are helicopter squadrons and the remaining three are equipped with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Building on the legacy inherited from the Royal Navy prior to Indian independence, the concept of naval aviation in India started with the establishment of Directorate of Naval Aviation at Naval Headquarters (NHQ) in early 1948. Later that year officers and sailors from the Indian Navy were sent to Britain for pilot training. In 1951, the Fleet Requirement Unit (FRU) was formed to meet the aviation requirements of the navy. Accidents in the Indian navy have been attributed to ageing ships in need of maintenance, delayed acquisitions by the Ministry of Defence, and human error. However naval commentators also argue that as India!-s large navy of 160 ships clocks around 12,000 ship-days at sea every year, in varied waters and weather, some incidents are inevitable. Captains of erring ships are dismissed from their command following an enquiry. The accident on board INS Sindhuratna (S59) led to the resignation of the then Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Admiral D K Joshi on 26 February 2014, who owned moral responsibility. The navy is envisaging a new !-Safety Organisation!- to improve the safety of its warships, nuclear submarines and aircraft in view of its planned increase in fleet strength over the next decade.
Note: It is a thought that the exhibition would be all over because everyone once naval ships, fighter planes, and how he would fight and what would he fight equipment’s bomb, rocket, air mishsail, etc.
