SOMEWHERE IN WESTERN SECTOR (PTI): Aiming to validate and enhance its operational readiness, the Gurj Division of Army is carrying out a military exercise somewhere in the Western Sector.

The exercise named 'Gurj Prahar' commenced on May 1 and will continue till May 20, a Defence spokesman said.

"Its aim is to validate and enhance operational readiness, test battle procedures and the synergy between the Army and the Air Force, in a joint operations scenario," he said.

Over 8,000 troops, combat vehicles, tanks, artillery guns and surveillance systems are participating in the exercise, he said.

"The exercise affords an opportunity to commanders at all levels to exercise their command and control, integrating the latest state-of-the-art assets of reconnaissance and surveillance into a network-centric decision-making matrix," he said.

The mental and physical robustness of the men and the endurance of the equipment will also be aptly tested in the scorching summer heat, he added.
