The UNREP operation involved the transfer of fuel and other essential supplies from JS Towada to INS Kadmatt. This complex maneuver requires precise coordination and teamwork between the two ships. The successful completion of the UNREP demonstrates the high level of professionalism and expertise of the Indian and Japanese navies.
INS Kadmatt is an anti-submarine warfare corvette built by Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers in Kolkata. JS Towada is a replenishment ship of the JMSDF.
The UNREP is a crucial capability for navies operating in distant waters. It allows ships to remain at sea for extended periods without returning to port for resupply. This enhances the operational readiness of the navies and their ability to respond to contingencies in the Indo-Pacific region.
The Indian Navy and the JMSDF have a long history of maritime cooperation. They regularly conduct joint exercises and training programs. The UNREP operation between INS Kadmatt and JS Towada is a testament to the strong and enduring partnership between the two navies.
