    Dhaka, Bangladesh (AHN) - The U.S. and Bangladesh armed forces will participate in a joint “Tiger Shark” exercise in Chittagong and Sylhet through late-May, a U.S. embassy announcement said on Sunday.

    Units from the Bangladesh Navy, Bangladesh Coast Guard, Bangladesh Army and the U.S. military will train for counter terrorism and maritime operations during the exercise.

    Tiger Shark is one of many joint activities conducted by the U.S. armed forces and the Bangladesh military.

    “Our militaries have a long history of working in partnership for humanitarian assistance and medical training and have also conducted air, land and sea exercises in the past,” the U.S. embassy said in a statement.

    As far as I can remember another "operation Tiger Shark" was held in last year. So this is the 2nd "Tiger Shark" exercise. This is cool!

    I think "Tiger Shark" is for the land and naval forces while the "Sumo Tiger" is for the Air forces.

    We need more of these exercises to keep our army well trained.Especially for the air force to improve their air to air combat skills.
