JAIPUR (PTI): Troops of the Indian Army South Western Command on Monday practised fighting in all contingencies, including a nuclear weapon environment, in the battlefield during the ongoing military exercise Vijay Prahar.

The troops practised day in and day out in the scorching heat to fine tune the drills and procedures to fight and destroy the enemy in a battle space contaminated by nukes, defence spokesperson Lt Col Manish Ojha said.

He said that considering the existing ground realities, the Army was gradually gearing up to fight and win in the contaminated battlefield.

A lot of equipment and fighting gear was already in the Army's inventory. Drills and procedures have evolved over a period of time, he said.

The exercise will culminate on May 9.
