India & US kick off military drill ‘Yudh Abhyas’ in Alaska
NEW DELHI: India and the US have kicked off their ‘Yudh Abhyas’ military exercise in the snow-clad mountains of Alaska, with over 300 soldiers from each side taking part in combat manoeuvres.
The 17th edition of Yudh Abhyas, which is the longest-running joint military training and defence cooperation endeavour between the two armies, is being held at the Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson in Alaska. Around 350 Indian soldiers from the 7 Madras infantry regiment and 300 American troops from the First Squadron (Airborne) of the 40th Cavalry Regiment are taking part in the 14-day exercise.
Commander US Army (Alaska) Major General Brian Eifler, during the opening ceremony, asked both contingents to focus on “improving cohesion and interoperability” to achieve training objectives of the exercise.
An Indian officer, in turn, said, “We have quite a bit of experience in high-altitude operations. We would like to share our experiences with them. We would like to imbibe lessons from the technological prowess of the US Army.”
I wish India would also do what China is doing.
Give them a taste of their own medicine.
FYI, it's Madras regiment of Indian Army that comes from the southern part of India (which is near coastline and humid) it's great to see how they perform so well in extremely cold enviornment of Alaska, Jai Ma Bharti.
Love how the Madras Bois are having a ball in the cold & hardy weather of Alaska.
Nothing but boys having fun in the snow. Damn, Alaska is beautiful, it's all snow, but there are plains and mountains. I have never seen snow on plains.
Well good to see them so happy
Himalayan acclimatized soldiers be like "so warm here"
When even our soldiers from madras which is a hot and humid place can be so efficient in this cold climate then think what the regiments from Northen India would do.
They would be definitely a nightmare for china.
May the citizens of India and America be happy and prosperous.

Even together it’s very hard to counter China when it’s standing firm with Russia
Both are the loser of afghanistan war, training is nothing without jazba
military training : snowballing each other
We need more nukes and nano weapons.
Proud to be an indian, jai hind
cos none of them have balls to fight alone
While the chinese army is conducting war drill near the indian border, the indian army train in alaska...
Playing netball and throwing ice balls great training while China is testing hypersonic glide missiles
did i see them have a snowball fight.
I feel very safe knowing these men have been specially trained in snowball throwing.
Haha they're playing beach volleyball
wild wild west
india train with america? ha ha, did you know that america trained afghanistan soldier also but in just a week america and afghan forces collapse, lol
Now the America find ways to approach to China Pakistan and Afghanistan and Iran which is impossible for US but with India the situation in Asia will be worst again and again.
They also trained the Afgan army.

The army only for drills
Why is US always interested in war in every corner of the world
India must get permanent member ship in UN, then only we able to counter china aggressively then only we able to build long range ballistics missiles.
First ask Modi Gujju to change assault rifles from INSAS to modern ones.
Why so stupid, Alaska is far away
Indians are easily manipulated hehehe.
