Operation Bold Kurukshetra
Operation Bold Kurukshetra, a bilateral armour training exercise, was held from March 6–13, 2023, in Jodhpur Military Station in India. It was the 13th iteration, and the Singapore Army and Indian Army both took part. Both armies participated in the first command post exercise in the series, which included computer wargaming and planning components at the battalion and brigade levels. Participants in the exercise, which was held by the Indian Army, included members of the 42nd Battalion, Singapore Armoured Regiment, as well as an Indian Army Armoured Brigade.
Joint training, which started on March 5th, promoted a shared understanding of mechanised warfare in regards to new threats and developing technologies. It also developed interoperability through a wargame based on computer simulation that used joint operational and tactical procedures that were managed by a joint command post. In addition to learning about one another’s operating procedures and drills, both contingents also shared ideas and best practises that are used in contemporary combat environments.
