Pakistan has often flaunted its 60 km Hatf IX missiles as a counter to India’s conventional military superiority. To fine tune the strategy and tackle the threat, the Indian Army organized a massive exercise that has almost completed its last phase. Here is everything you need to know about it along with some amazing pictures of our Indian soldiers participating in the exercise with full dedication.
The Indian Army is conducting a major exercise ‘Shatrujeet’ by the Mathura-based Strike Corps in the desert area of Mahajan field firing range in Rajasthan.
The exercise is being conducted to evaluate the capability of the army to strike, deep into the enemy territory in an integrated air -land battle environment.
In this scorching heat, the Indian soldiers can be seen participating with full dedication.
The exercise has completed its last phase and will be ending tomorrow i.e. April 22, 2016.
