A total of 19 military observers from the US, the UK, Singapore, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Turkey are also participating in the exercise.

The Shantir Ogroshena exercise is aimed at strengthening the procedures and improve interoperability among the neighbourhood countries.

The armies of all the participating countries will share their expertise and refine their drills as well as procedures in ‘peace keeping’ operations.

In March, Indian special forces undertook a joint military exercise with US special forces at Bakloh in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh to boost interoperability.

This was the 11th edition of Indo-US joint special forces exercise ‘Vajra Prahar 2021’.

In February this year, Indian MoD announced that the Indian Army is in the process of procuring 556 augmented reality head-mounted display (ARHMD) systems.
