It is interesting to note that the discussion is largely led by Army Officers. It would be for the Navy to lead a discussion on the Indian Ocean Security challenges and force-levels to meet them. Are there no naval types to raise the level of discussion? the same ideas/concepts are being discussed over & over again. No ref is made to amphibious forces, aircraft carrier formations, patrol boats Vs larger warships, satelite intel & elint and so on., Without specifics who can decypher what is required going forward? What kinda guidance can be sent for policy makers/seniors to think about?
