Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh vis­its Ar­moured Corps Cen­tre at Ahmed­na­gar


In a fol­low-up to Ex­er­cise Sha­tru­jeet by the Strike Corps (Strike One) last month, the pivot for­ma­tions held the fort­night-long mil­i­tary train­ing ex­er­cise code-named Ex­er­cise Chakravyuh-II, which con­cluded on May 10 in the gen­eral area of Su­rat­garh in Ra­jasthan. The ex­er­cise con­cep­tu­alised by the Pivot Corps in­volved rapid mo­bil­i­sa­tion and ex­e­cu­tion of plans in sync with the In­dian Air Force in desert ter­rain and was de­clared a suc­cess. The ex­er­cise val­i­dated the battle readi­ness and op­er­a­tional ef­fec­tive­ness of the Rapid Di­vi­sion along with all its af­fil­i­ated com­po­nents.

The two-sided ex­er­cise had el­e­ments de­pict­ing op­pos­ing forces to add re­al­ism in plan­ning and ex­e­cu­tion and was con­ducted in var­i­ous phases to test the op­er­a­tional readi­ness and the battle ef­fi­ciency of var­i­ous el­e­ments of the mod­ern-day bat­tle­field.

Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh, the Chief of the Army Staff, vis­ited the Ar­moured Corps Cen­tre and School and the Mech­a­nised In­fantry Reg­i­men­tal Cen­tre, Ahmed­na­gar, re­cently. Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh ap­pre­ci­ated the laud­able work be­ing done by both in­sti­tu­tions and the mech­a­nised forces in gen­eral.

The Chief of the Army Staff com­pli­mented the Ar­moured Corps Cen­tre and School and the Mech­a­nised In­fantry Reg­i­men­tal Cen­tre for state-of-the-art train­ing in­fra­struc­ture and fo­cus to­wards en­hanc­ing battle pre­pared­ness stan­dards.
