SLOC safety and anti piracy brought PLA N to the African shores giving foot hold in IOR. Long sustained operation since 2008- Need for turn round bases and permanent facilities felt.

Two fleets on either flanks with support facilities distributed along the coast and in Island territories Forward post in A&N a game changer when used appropriately Linked also to the Malacca Dilemma of China and its westward thrust. For China the “Tyranny of distance from SCS “ is a major concern and the ports in IOR are planned to overcome that limitation. Never easy for PLA N to manage both fronts one in the SCS/ECS and another in IOR . China’s carrier is yet to venture in to IOR. It will happen once China is ready and confident of its CBG capability and the confidence that there would be no mischief when it is away from its first and second line of defence.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
