India, Pakistan to launch war games

Express April 07, 2010


The armies of India and Pakistan will hold simultaneous military exercises this month near their common frontier.

The Times of India says India is set to launch a month-long desert exercise in the western state of Rajasthan in mid-April.

During these exercises, the Indian army will practice launching self-contained mobile “battle groups,” with Russian-origin T-90 tanks and upgraded T-72 M1 tanks.

India aims to test offensive strategies and the war games will involve air forces.

On the other hand, Pakistan’s military will conduct its war exercises, Azm-e-Nau 3, from April 10th to May 13th in Punjab and Sindh.
