Army exercise Shatru Naash focuses on NBC environ warfare

The Indian Army is conducting a massive four-day military exercise code named Shatru Naash (Destruction of Enemy) in Punjab to check its battle preparedness in a Nuclear-Biological-Chemical (NBC) warfare backdrop.

Ludhiana, May 13 : The Indian Army is conducting a massive four-day military exercise code named 'Shatru Naash' (Destruction of Enemy) in Punjab to check its battle preparedness in a Nuclear-Biological-Chemical (NBC) warfare backdrop.

"When it comes to nuclear threshold, on NBC environment we are training the soldier. We all are sensitive and well aware about it...Whatever training is necessary for the subcontinent, we are doing it," said Brigadier Deepak Vashishta, of 11th Corps.

The exercise that began on Friday in Nakodar, Ludhiana and Jagraon areas, involves 15,000 troops from Vajra corps and an array of military hardware, including T-72 tanks, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and electronic surveillance devices.

The troops of the Pine division and the Flaming Arrow armoured brigade are taking part in the exercise that follows Exercise Ashwamedha that was conducted recently in the deserts of Rajasthan.

In exercise 'Shatru Naash' the Indian Air Force (IAF) are taking part in a big way as choppers are provided aerial cover during the mock battles.

The participation of IAF is part of the new war doctrine that calls for a harmonious synergy between the three armed forces of the country-Army, Navy and Air Force.
