Soldiers from India Army's 2nd Mechanized Infantry Battalion and 471st Engineer Brigade participated in Yudh Abhyas.
This marked the eighth time the USARPAC-sponsored theater security cooperation exercise was held with the India Army. Yudh Abhyas began in 2004 and has moved from platoon-level operations to brigade and battalion-level operations. Yudh Abhyas enhanced cooperation and interoperability during training. Cultural exchanges also helped build skills necessary for peacekeeping operations.
This year was the first use of the India Army field firing area in the Rajasthan desert for Yudh Abhyas. The training area provided the capability to conduct large-scale, complex bilateral drills with India Army forces in a challenging environment.
Bilateral training during Yudh Abhyas 2011-2012 built India and U.S. army combined staff readiness and cooperation. The exercise provided an opportunity for USARPAC Soldiers to train with their India Army counterparts to improve joint operation skills while building personal relationships.
