The Indian Army and Indian Air Force (IAF) commandos carried out para jumps and other breathtaking manoeuvres at the Zapad-2021 military exercise in Russia. Videos of the breathtaking operations were released by the Indian Army’s official Twitter account ADGPI.
In one of the videos of the exercise released by the Indian Army on its official Twitter account, the Indian contingent participating in the multi-nation exercise were seen carrying out a joint rehearsal of Special Heliborne Operation (SHBO). Another one showed the army men getting ready for the para jumps from IAF aircraft.
The Indian contingent participating in Zapad 2021 has been represented by 200 personnel from the Indian Army. Interestingly, India’s rivals China and Pakistan have been taking part in the exercise as ‘observers’. Zapad 2021 began at Nizhniy, Russia on September 3 and will continue till September 16.
