Indian Army Conducts Anti-Tank Guided Missile Training Exercise in Sikkim
  • The Trishakti Corps of the Indian Army recently carried out a significant Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM) exercise in Sikkim, an operation that unfolded at a staggering altitude of 17,000 feet.
  • This exercise wasn't just a routine drill; it was a testament to the rigorous training and readiness of the Indian Army, particularly its Eastern Command.
  • Drawing participation from Missile Firing Detachments of both Mechanized and Infantry Units across the Eastern Command, the exercise was comprehensive and intense. The focus was on live firing scenarios against dynamic and stationary targets, mirroring real battlefield situations. Such drills are vital for honing soldiers' skills and ensuring they're prepared for any combat scenario, especially in demanding terrains like the Himalayas.
  • The prowess displayed by the ATGM Detachments was commendable. Their ability to accurately and efficiently neutralize armored threats underscores their critical role in ensuring mission success, even amidst the formidable challenges posed by mountainous regions.
  •  This exercise underscored the strategic imperative encapsulated by the motto "Ek Missile Ek Tank" while emphasizing the ATGM systems' precision and effectiveness in operating seamlessly in super high-altitude environments.
