With about 30,000 soldiers in action, the Indian Army is conducting a major exercise ‘Shatrujeet’ by the elite ‘Strike 1’ in deserts of Rajasthan wherein the capability to strike deep in enemy territory in an integrated Air-Land battle environment is being tested.
The operationally oriented exercise is focusing on validating integrated theatre battle fighting concept incorporating new age technologies, weapon platforms and systems as well as long range precision targeting vectors.
Indian Army undertakes such exercises at regular intervals at different levels to ensure forces are provided real war like situations and are kept in high state of battle readiness. The formation and units have been undergoing operational oriented training for past one month. Post preparatory training manoeuvres at subordinate units and formation levels, the STRIKE 1 is now poised to conduct integrated operational manoeuvres to validate its operational plans in simulated high tempo battlefield environment and terrain.
