The Army carries out a five-day war game aimed at

NEW DELHI (PTI): The Army Thursday concluded a five-day war game, aimed at "refining" its strategies vis-a-vis the western borders and fine tuning its tactical manoeuvres for the future.

The table-top high-level war game was planned and executed with use of maps and clay models of forces on ground at the Army's Western Command headquarters in Chandimandir near Chandigarh with Army chief General Deepak Kapoor in attendance, top Army sources said here this evening.

"The war game is much more than an exercise, played out with use of real troops, equipment and weapon platforms. It looks at various options that the Army has to defend the borders and is done at regular intervals to update commanders from the unit level to the top on the scenarios that they could expect in the future," sources said.

Such war games had been played out by other formations including the South-Western Command headquarters in Jaipur along the Rajasthan borders with Pakistan earlier this year, source said.

Western Command, incidentally, covers most of the western borders with Pakistan including in Punjab, parts of Jammu and Kashmir, apart from portions of the Line of Actual Control with China along Himachal Pradesh.
