India, Singapore bilateral naval exercise ' SIMBEX 2018' begins


Simbex is an acronym for Singapore-India Maritime Bilateral Exercises.

The 25th edition of SIMBEX, “Singapore-India Maritime Bilateral Exercise” is scheduled to be held from November 10- 21, 2018 in the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal.

The 2018 edition marks the silver jubilee of SIMBEX.

The number of missiles and torpedo firings being undertaken in this year's edition will be the largest the Indian Navy has undertaken with any foreign Navy till date, which indicates the growing trust and operational comfort between the two navies.

Bilateral cooperation between Singapore and India was first formalised when RSN ships began training with the Indian Navy in 1994.
