    NEW DELHI: From just a couple of joint exercises annually a decade ago, Indian Army is really cranking up its engagement with foreign armies now. The 1.13-million force will undertake as many as 16 combat exercises with friendly forces in 2011-2012.

    From US, UK, France,Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan to Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Maldives, Seychelles, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand, the response has been "simply overwhelming", say Army officers.

    good to boost the moral of Indian forces and moreover they will have an outing too. why not conduct tri or bi force exercise with latam countries to brandish domestic stuff like arjun radar and insas.

    Yeah, we need to engage with Latin America more, but the sheer distance between us and them complicates regular interaction.
