Exercise Agneyastra-1 : Indian Army shows integrated artillery firepower at high altitudes near LAC

The Indian Army has concluded a massive military exercise — Agneyastra 1 — in eastern Ladakh.

With a video of the exercise, the Indian Army’s Northern Command tweeted, “An awe-inspiring display of unfettered integration, firepower supremacy, and sheer determination.”

“Exercise showcased the prowess of Indian Army with participation from all Arms and Services,” the Northern Command further tweeted.

Earlier (on 4 May), the Army had conducted another massive exercise — Buland Bharat, in Arunachal Pradesh’s Tawang and West Kameng districts, where the Indian and Chinese troops clashed last December.

The Agneyastra-1 exercise included various artillery platforms of the Indian Army, including the newly-inducted Korean K-9 Vajra-T 155mm/52 calibre self-propelled howitzer (SPH), FH-77 Bofors 155mm/39 calibre towed howitzer and mortars.

Ideaforge switch UAV provided real-time imagery of the exercise area indicating that Indian Army has fully integrated switch UAVs in their battle plans.

Anti-tank missiles and Carl Gustav rocket launchers (RLs) were also used in the exercise.

These anti-tank rockets and missiles can defeat Chinese ZTQ-15 light tanks, Armored Personnel Carriers (APC), Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV) and light armored vehicles, in case of war.

The exercise also serves as a deterrent in case China decides to go to war against India in the eastern Ladakh sector.

The Indian and Chinese People Liberation Army (PLA) troops are engaged in the ongoing standoff at the entire LAC for the third straight year, and there are no still signs of Chinese restoring the status-quo.

The exercise comes just three days after June 16 which marks the completion of three years since the brutal clash at Galwan, where 20 Indian Army soldiers were killed.

Reportedly, the Chinese suffered dozens of casualties, while they claim only three. Exercise Agneyastra-1 : Indian Army shows integrated artillery firepower at high altitudes near LAC IgMp
