[January 28 2019]

A Joint Maritime Surveillance Training Exercise of the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force (JMSDF), Sri Lanka Navy and Sri Lanka Air Force got underway in the seas west of Hikkaduwa, on Sunday (27th January).

According to Navy media, the exercise was joined by two P-C3 JMSDF maritime surveillance aircraft, two Navy Fast Attack Craft and an SL Air Force Y-12 utility aircraft. A group of Sri Lanka Navy officers who are well-versed in maritime surveillance exercises also joined this combined Exercise.

Sri Lanka Navy, Air Force and foreign counterparts have practiced several training exercises and drills in recent times aiming to further enhance their skills in search and rescue operations at sea. It is also expected that these Exercises will increase interoperability, professionalism and camaraderie among friendly forces in the region.
