The exercise witnessed the use of multifarious firing platforms in an integrated manner involving both ground & aerial manoeuvres. Various actions including the insertion of troops, offensive ground actions involving comprehensive coordination incorporating contemporary technologies in a multi-domain environment etc were conducted.

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.
