This space is dedicated exclusively to pictures of the Bhāratīya Thalsēnā / The Indian Army in contemporaneous. Please note: only the best pictures of the Army (non-IAF and non-IN, however including tanks, APC's, artillery, etc.) may be considered.

I intend to fill this space with a plethora of images from the various Artillery, Infantry, Armored, Engineer, Mechanized Infantry and Army Aviation Corps of the Indian Army.

Note: No videos.

Mods, kindly pin this space.

I will begin with images of a recently concluded joint training exercise between members of the Thai Armed Forces and the Indian Army:

Images of the Indo-Thai joint Army Exercises

The Indians are the ones in the military camoflauge and the yellow gloves (copter pics and rappeling down). The Thai are in full-green overalls. Indian officers have golden shoulder stripes.

Which picture F-14? The images are from a joint Indo-Singapore military exercise conducted in 2008 that was a product of a bilateral agreement signed at the fourth India-Singapore Defence Policy Dialogue in October 2007. My source is military-photos.

Hmmm....Do you guage that from the script on the copter door?

My source explicitly states that it is from a joint Indo-Singapore training ex in 2008.

In any case, if you can find me ineluctable proof, PM it to me and I'll change the title. It hardly matters though, as long as our troopss are involved.

yes rageji
Dude, no "Ji" please :D

If you come across a credible military/military image source that contains these images and makes reference to a joint Indo-Thai exercise, send the link to me via PM and I'll put the link up and change the title of the post. Sound fair to you?

For now, we'll leave it with what militaryphotos says it is.

Edit: Aiite F-14 brotha, title amended.
