The Commanding Officer also called on Rear Admiral Ayman Al-Daily, Commander of the Alexandria Naval Base. On departure from the port, INS Tabar undertook a ‘Partnership Exercise’ at sea with the Egyptian Naval Ship Taushka.

The exercise also included Hello Deck Landing Ops. This maritime exercise has exemplified the naval cooperation and interaction between the Indian Navy and the Egyptian Navy. The purpose of the friendly visit of INS Tabar is to promote stronger ties between the two sides and to explore new avenues to further strengthen the ties.
The first mission of the world’s largest submarine
The sea is also an important area of tension between competing countries in the world. Amidst the ongoing tension with the US and Britain, Russia has sent the world’s largest submarine Belgorod on its first intelligence mission. This is the Belgorod submarine’s first mission at sea since its launch in 2019. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, all sea trials of this submarine have been completed. The 604-foot-long Belgorod, built in the last 30 years, is the world’s largest submarine.
Experts fear that the 79-foot-long Poseidon torpedo stationed inside the submarine could explode underwater and cause a radioactive tsunami at sea. Due to this, waves up to 300 feet can rise in the cities located along the coast. Experts think that even if people survive a tsunami, they may be exposed to radioactive radiation for many years.
