    India and Russia are preparing to hold their annual joint counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency army war games in August 2012 in Buryatia in southeast Russia.

    The exercise is called Indra-2012 and will witness about 250 troops from each side matching their skills and understanding each other's standard operating procedures in exercises to eliminate terrorists and insurgents. The Indian Army has extensive knowledge in counter-terrorism and major armies of the world are queuing up to learn from the Indian Army's extensive experience.


    The war game will take place at a training area in Buryatia, which falls under the Russian Army's Eastern Command.

    The last Indra exercise was held in India's Uttarakhand state in October 2010, when about 250 troops from each side carried out manoeuvres in the garrison town of Chaubatia near hill resort Ranikhet.

    Indian Army troops will use and get acquainted with Russian military equipment during the exercise in the first stage. They will also get to participate in joint tasks to get trained in standard operating procedures. Later, the two sides will carry out a synchronised counter-terrorism operations.
