Lt Gen Arun Kumar Sahni , GOC-in-C (Army Commander) South Western Command today witnessed the conduct of exercise ‘Sarvada Vijay’ in Rajasthan. The Army Commander was briefed by Lt Gen Ravi Thodge, Corps Commander Strike Corps on the training aspects .
Exercise Sarvada Vijay is being conducted as part of regular training where a large Army formation is practicing and honing war fighting skills. Composite infantry and mechanised forces practiced swift maneuvers deep into enemy territory and linked up with airborne troops. Networked radars, UAVs and aerial surveillance platforms ensured continuous flow of information resulting in battlefield transparency which enabled commanders to asses and suitably modify their operational plans to meet the emerging challenges. Mobile communication systems integrated with terrestrial network provided efficient ‘communication on the move’ across the battle field.
The Army Commander reviewed complex and integrated operational manoeuvres of the formation. Synergy between Army and Air Force in launching coordinated air-land battle and the ability to orchestrate battle in network centric environment were successfully validated.
The Army Commander appreciated the standard of training of the formation and complimented the formation on their battle readiness and validation of concepts of warfare.
