On completion of port visit to Brest in France, INS Tabar undertook maritime partnership exercise with FNS Aquitaine, a French naval frigate in the Bay of Biscay on July 15 and 16. A twin-engine helicopter (NH 90) from FNS Aquitaine and four Rafale fighter aircraft from French Navy also participated in the exercise.

A wide range of operations including anti-submarine, surface manoeuvres, replenishment at sea approach, firing on target, visit board search & seizure (VBSS), steam past, air defence, air picture compilation, vertical replenishment and cross-deck operations were undertaken by the ships. The exercise was mutually beneficial in enhancing interoperability and towards consolidating combined operations against maritime threats, said a press note from the Indian Navy.
