The devastating effect of firepower was visible at the target end alongwith the ground manoeuvres executed by the mechanised forces.

Lauding the training given to troops, Lieutenant General A S Bhinder, General Officer Commanding In Chief, Sapta Shakti Command appreciated the participation & synergy amongst various combat & combat support arms. He also commended the exploitation of the capability of indigenous platforms inducted as part of the initiative.
