The Egyptian and Indian armed forces are witnessing closer cooperation than ever before, even as both nations continue to work to further solidify defence ties. Both nations undertake regular Joint Defence Cooperation (JDC) meets and the Indo-Egypt JDC was first set up in Aug 2006. Officers from the militaries of both nations attend courses at their military training institutes, in addition to regular conduct of joint training exercises and exchange visits of senior armed forces officers of both nations.

In recent months, the Indian Air Force (IAF) and Indian Navy have both concluded exercises with the Egyptian armed forces.

Both air forces recently trained together during Exercise Desert Warrior in Egypt with air combat sorties focussed on joint operations, mid-air refuelling and joint combat tasking. The IAF operates a number of platforms also in service with the Egyptian Air Force such as the Rafale, Mirage 2000, MiG-29 and AH-64 Apache attack helicopters.

The Indian Navy also recently sent its warship INS Tabar for maritime partnership exercises with the Egyptian Navy’s frontline frigate ENS Alexandria in the Mediterranean Sea. The highlight of the exercise were cross-deck helo operations involving helo recovery procedures and airborne light replenishment drills between the two warships. The other aspects of the training drills included, transit through asymmetric threat environment, operations for interdicting suspect vessels at sea, communication procedures, joint development of maritime domain picture and replenishment at sea drills.
