Singapore, India Conclude Bilateral Armor Exercises


On April 13, the Indian Army and the Singapore Army concluded the latest iteration of their bilateral armor training exercise, named Bold Kurukshetra. The exercise began on April 2 and concluded on April 13. In total, 270 troops from both countries participated. This year’s exercise involved integrated live-fire drills.
