UK Chief of Defence Staff Highlights Discussions on Electric Propulsion for Indian Warships
The UK and India are discussing the sharing of technical expertise and experience on maritime electric propulsion systems to meet the future requirements of Indian warships. Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, Chief of the Defence Staff of the UK, stated that both nations are exploring increased cooperation in logistics, technology, and information sharing, and are also in talks regarding a training pact that would enable their armed forces to share common ethos and basis. During his three-day visit to India, the top UK military officer met with top Indian military officials to discuss these issues, amidst a series of high-level military interactions between the two nations.
Admiral Radakin discusses strengthening UK-India military cooperation
Admiral Radakin’s remarks are significant since Indian naval warships currently lack electric propulsion systems, and the Navy intends to include them in its future warships. The countries have formed a joint electronic propulsion working group that met in the UK in February and again in Kochi last month, and discussions are at the exploratory stage.
