Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited the Pokhran firing range in Rajasthan to witness the Bharat Shakti exercise, showcasing the prowess of indigenously manufactured defence equipment of the three services. The exercise, held for about 50 minutes, included an integrated tri-service firepower and manoeuvre demonstration.

Additional Director General of Army Design Bureau, Major General C S Mann, highlighted that the exercise aimed to demonstrate live integrated multi-domain operations of the three services in offensive operations using indigenous equipment.

The proceedings commenced with the Army’s Special Forces, MARCOS of the Indian Navy, and GARUDS of the Indian Air Force infiltrating by all-terrain vehicles and slithering operations. Surveillance of the battlefield was carried out by remotely piloted aircraft and drones, followed by the degradation of targets by long-range vectors and artillery guns.The Indian Air Force (IAF) achieved a favourable air situation by engaging strategic targets in depth, while the Navy undertook maritime operations for strategic effects. Some parts of the naval segment of the exercise were displayed digitally on screen due to terrain restrictions. Logistic capabilities for transporting equipment and evacuation of injured and casualties were also demonstrated using the latest technologies.Various types of Radar, UAV-launched precision-guided munition, Quick Reaction Fighting Vehicles, drones of various types, including logistic drones and swarms of drones, and 3D-printed bunkers were part of the exercise. India’s cyber and multi-domain operations capabilities were also showcased along with the operations of the three services.

The exercise also highlighted the integration of individual communication systems of the tri-services, including the ‘e-Tarang’ software tool, GIS-related systems, topographical maps, hydrographic charts, and air navigation charts with analysis and operational planning capabilities.
