HMS Dragon On Exercise In GOA With Indian Navy

Posted on December 10, 2018

HMS Dragon has joined with INS (Indian Navy Ship) Kolkota for exercise Konkan. Before they struck out to sea together, the two destroyers met in Mormugoa, Goa, to prepare. Exercise Konkan saw the two ships flex their Commonwealth maritime powers as they dealt with threats from the air – which was put on by the Indian Air force, as well as threats posed by Indian submarines. HMS Dragon’s Commanding Officer, Commander Michael Carter Quinn, said the week with the Indians was a rich and rewarding experience. “With a rich heritage of shared endeavour, having the opportunity to bring HMS Dragon as the first Type 45 destroyer to visit India and work alongside the INS Kolkota, has been a huge honour.”
