New Delhi: Army chief Gen Dalbir Singh Suhag will visit the strategically important tri-service Andaman and Nicobar Command this week and review India's amphibious warfare capabilities.
Army sources said it is likely to be a two-day visit during which he will also review the ongoing projects in the country's only tri-service command, which is being beefed up to counter China's moves in the Indian Ocean Region.
The Army has an entire brigade (about 3,000 personnel) posted in the Adamans which are exclusively trained and meant for amphibious warfare.
They also have another amphibious brigade in Trivandrum which can be pushed into action within a short span of time.
The Army personnel conduct joint drills with the Navy so to ensure that operations run smoothly in case of any need.
Both the IAF and the Navy have cranked up their infrastructure and deployment of critical assets under the Command.
