    Ahead of DGMO level talks next week, an elite Strike Corps of the Indian Army carried out wargames near the India-Pakistan border involving over 15,000 troops and over 100 tanks.

    15,000 troops of the 36 RAPID (Reorganised Army Plains Division) participated in 'Shahbaaz Ajay' exercise which included over 100 armoured-class vehicles among other advanced artillery and air defence equipment in western sector.

    "Strike Corps validated new concepts and refined existing battle procedures. A high degree of integration was achieved with the IAF while undertaking specialised operations which included an air borne assault and a special helicopter borne operation," defence spokesperson colonel SD Goswami said.

    The 36 RAPID Division is part of the elite 21 Strike Corps. A Para (Special Forces) battalion under the Bhopal-based strike formation also took part in the exercise.

    Lt Gen Amit Sharma, the Strike Corps Commander, reviewed the tactical drills and maneuvers of the Division.

    The culmination phase of the exercise was witnessed by Southern Army Commander Lt Gen Ashok Singh.

    The Army in winter sends its strike formations to test and conceptualise their war fighting procedures and evolve them further.

    India and Pakistan are scheduled to hold DGMO-level talks on December 24 at the Pakistan side of the Wagah border where they are expected to discuss ways of ensuring peace along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

    What happens inside army and how it is been feed to people by various media is very different, Its been exposed all the time both here and BR and people who are aware of situation with little help of brain..

    Bottom line is, We have external and internal elements in every branch of Gov and media trying hard to stop us from being self sufficient, India being self sufficient is not good for anyone who are from we are buying let it be anyone ..

    T-90 scam will be exposed like bofors some time ..
