    India-Russia military exercise from November 7

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/i...w/49683326.cms


    JAISALMER/JODHPUR: Indian and Russian armies will be holding a joint military exercise 'INDRA-2015' with a view to develop the capabilities to combat international terrorism and to counter the evolving threats.

    This exercise, which is the seventh edition in a continuing series of annual bilateral exercise under this banner, will be conducted from November 7 to 20, in Bikaner, and a 250-member strong contingent of the Russian army will be participating in this joint exercise.

    According to the Defence spokesperson Manish Ojha, the focus of this exercise will be on 'Counter terrorism operations in the backdrop of desert terrain under a United Nations mandate'.

    To achieve interoperability in joint operations in the future, troops from an Independent Russian Motorised Brigade and Indian Army's Infantry Battalion would initially acquaint themselves with the approach to such operations, command and control systems as well as arms and equipments of each other.

    Ojha informed that the exercise would be conducted in two phases, namely 'Combat conditioning and tactical training' and 'Validation'. During the exercise, participants will engage in a variety of missions including joint planning, cordon and search operations, search and rescue, joint tactical drills and special arms skills.

    Ojha informed that a comprehensive training programme spanning four weeks has also been drawn up for the purpose. The exercise will be witnessed by senior Indian and Russian general

    Pakistan seeks information on Indian Army's exercise in Rajasthan

    NEW DELHI: One of the largest military exercises by the Indian Army in recent years has evoked sharp concern in the neighbourhood, with Pakistan raising questions on the scale and scope of the war game that would practice quick maneuvers by strike formations in the desert region.

    While India had shared details of the 'Winter Exercise' that has commenced in Rajasthan this month as part of a mutually agreed protocol, sources told ET that Pakistan requested for additional details of the war game, with concerns emerging on the 'intent' of the wargame.

    The Winter Exercise is the biggest wargame being conducted by the Army since the BJP government has come into power and involves over 35,000 soldiers, several hundred tanks and armoured vehicles and heavy artillery support.
    The exercise is being undertaken by the Bhopal-based 21 Strike Corps, which has already placed a Brigade level force into the area with more elements being inducted this month before the culmination stage from December 5-10. A 'defensive corps', which shall function as the holding formation for the strike corps exercise will shortly be moved into place from Jodhpur.

    "We have informed them (Pakistan) about the exercise according to the procedure. It is as per the routine training and if there are concerns, they will be dealt with through the regular channels as well," a senior Defence Ministry functionary told ET.

    As the piece says Indian stands ready to answer question through regular channels - seems to me you should take up your concern with Indian Army.
