India and the US are planning anti-submarine operations using Boeing P-8 aircraft during the joint naval exercise scheduled in July this year.

Both the nations are expected to share expertise in anti-submarine warfare, given the common platform they operate with, the Boeing P8 aircraft, The US Pacific Fleet Commander – whose warships will take part in the war games said.

 “We continue to learn more and more how to operate our P8s more effectively, expect that the Indian Navy has the same experience. There would be a deepening of our understanding on how to operate those platforms in anti-submarine warfare environments,” Admiral Scott Swift was quoted as saying by Economic Times Saturday. 

However, cautioning on the use of term joint patrols, he said, “last month, we have done multiple operations throughout the pacific – with Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France and Singapore. So, this is more the norm than the exception,” Admiral Swift said talking to the media after bilateral meetings in the capital.
