Express April 07, 2010

ISLAMABAD:

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.
