India holds war games along its coasts

To counter terror threats in the backdrop of the Mumbai attacks, top army generals have evolved detailed plans to secure the country’s coastline from Gujarat to Orissa and refine the force’s amphibious warfare tactics. The strategies were fine-tuned by top brass including Army chief General Deepak Kapoor during a two-day table-top war game in Pune last week, army sources here said today. Plans for the Southern Command to protect the coastline from both conventional and asymmetric threats were discussed threadbare, they said. The war game was a closed-door conceptual exercise conducted by top commanders with the help of sand models and large-scale maps, which do not involve troops on the ground. The Pune drill follows a similar exercise by the Kolkata-based Eastern Command a fortnight back for area in the North-eastern states along the borders with China, Bangladesh and Myanmar, apart from its counter-insurgency operations. During May this year, some formations under the Western Command had carried out annual field exercises in Punjab plains to validate operational concepts and test their equipment. Later, in June, the Western Command’s top brass conducted a war game at its headquarters in Chandimandir near Chandigarh concentrating on the Pakistani border along Jammu and Punjab, apart from counter-insurgency strategies in Jammu region.{content @ expressbuzz}
