Ex Vajra Prahar, a joint Indo-US Special Forces Exercise was conducted from 15 Oct to 04 Nov 2012 under the aegis of HQ Western Command . The exercise was in continuation of the series of annual interactions carried out between the Special Forces of both Nations. It was aimed at enhancing interoperability at the functional level, based on exchange of battle hardened combat experiences gained by the Special Forces of both nations in the form of both theoretical discussions and practical execution of drills during field training. The Special Forces of the two nations immensely benefited from each other’s experience during the training period wherein they shared Special Forces skills and tactics, and subsequently integrated the learned skills in the conduct of various training activities and exercises based on sub conventional and hybrid threat scenarios. The aim of the exercise was to promote positive military to military relationship between the two countries through enhancement of interoperability, jointness and mutual exchange of Special Forces tactics. A total of 138 personnel participated in the exercise.

Training

 

 

Corps is a Mechanised Formation of the Indian Army. The interface between the man and machine and the coordination between the crew of the tanks are an important facet of training. The photograph shows a tank firing during an exercise in Pokharan Ranges in 2018 & a tank practicing Crew Coordination during move.

 

One method of defending an area against Armoured attacks is by flooding irrigation canals to create marshy areas so that tanks are bogged down. The picture above shows Tanks practicing negotiation of a marshy area.

 

Tanks training with attack helicopters in Mahajan firing Ranges.

 

Large scale Mechanised Warfare is a very complex operation and requires frequent and dedicated training. The picture above shows Tanks and Infantry Combat Vehicles (ICVs) involved in a obstacle crossing operation.

 

One of the most important aspects that enables an advancing army to move unhaltingly in enemy territory is the ability of the Army Engineers to build roads and lay bridges. The picture above depicts the Army Engineers laying a bridge across a Water Obstacle.

 

TRAINING OF FRIENDLY FOREIGN COUNTRIES

 

The Indian Army undertakes the training of soldiers from friendly foreign countries. These soldiers and officers come from all over the world and are trained in various Centres across the Country.
