Thread: #India on Tuesday launched its largest ever coastal defence exercise “Sea Vigil” led by the #IndianNavy along the country’s entire 7,517 km coastline including island territories & the 2 million sq km Exclusive Economic Zone 👍💪🇮🇳💪👍 @indiannavy @avarakai @desertfox61I
This massive endeavor comes a decade after the deadly 26/11 terror strikes in Mumbai. “The scale of the exercise is unprecedented in terms of the geographical extent, the number of stakeholder involved, the number of units participating and in terms of the objectives to be met.
The Sea Vigil exercise aims to comprehensively & holistically validate the efficacy of the measures taken for coastal defence since 26/11. It'll also be a build-up towards the major 'Tropex' exercise, which the Navy conducts every 2 years timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/sea-vigi…
