The Southern Army concluded its one of a kind exercise in the deserts on 22 December 2017. The exercise was witnessed by General Bipin Rawat, Chief of the Army Staff on 21 and 22 December 2017. The army executed its manoeuvres in a network enabled environment by employing diverse elements of combat and combat support arms fully integrated with air assets to achieve decisive results. The exercise is aimed at streamlining operational procedures.

With emphasis on surveillance and network centricity, a multitude of aerial and land based surveillance devices were fielded to gain information and present a comprehensive picture to the commanders. Additionally, various electronic warfare equipment and other new age force multipliers were used to amalgamate technology and further refine real time information of adversary’s activities which was shared with various command and control centres for planning and execution of coordinated operations.




Thereafter, a host of medium and long range weapons as well as airborne/ heliborne forces and the entire spectrum of aerial platforms were utilised to ensure non linear application of combat potential. With a large array of tanks and other types of armoured vehicles duly supported by extensive firepower assets and robust logistics, the army showcased its cutting edge operational readiness, as also presented a sterling example of jointmanship and high degree of synergy with the Indian Air Force.

Having closely witnessed the exercise, the COAS commended the forces on their battle preparedness and synergised orchestration of complex operational manoeuvres. He also complimented the troops on achieving a very high standard of training during the exercise and termed it as highly successful.
