New Command at Sea billets opening up

But you have to go to India. Yikes!
In the wake of recent mishaps, the Indian Navy has decided to review the training of crews, following four accidents involving its ships during the last 10 months in which of one of them - INS Prahar - sank off the Goa coast in April.
the stealth frigate INS Trishul which was severely damaged after a collision with a merchant vessel M V Ambuja Laxmi outside the Mumbai harbour
the stealth frigate INS Talwar accidentally dropped its anchor on its own anti-submarine sonardome and had to be rushed for repairs.
the Nilgiri class frigate INS Dunagiri collided with the merchant vessel M V Kiti off the Mumbai coast.
INS Prahar, a missile corvette sank in April after it collided with the Merchant vessel Rajiv Gandhi.
Ahem, BOMBAY is a busy port. A rough patch for a growing Navy. Sounds like they will use it as an excuse to address training. Always an area to know..the complicated things like not running into stuff.
