ऑपरेशन ब्लू स्टार के समय जब आर्मी की ब्रिगेड ऑफ द गार्ड और गढ़वाल कंपनी के अधिकतर सैनिक वीरगति प्राप्त हो गए तो '15 कुमाऊं' को आगे भेजा गया ।

6_जून_1984 को 15 कुमाऊं की एल्फा बटालियन की प्रथम यूनिट के 5 सिपाही सुबह 5:30 पर स्वर्णमंदिर में घुसने लगे👇...1/5
आतंकवादी ऊपर से गोलियां बरसा रहे थे।

सबसे आगे चल रहे चुरु निवासी रणजीतसिंह गौड़ सबसे पहले वीरगति प्राप्त हुए {मरणोपरांत उन्हें शौर्य चक्र मिला}
तब दूसरे और तीसरे नंबर के जवानों ने ओट ले ली... वहीं एलएमजी के साथ झालरापाटन के नायक निर्भयसिंह सिसोदिया चौथे नंबर और स्टैंनगन...2/5
के साथ जोधपुर के अमरसिंह भाटी पांचवें नंबर पर चल रहे थे।

गोलियों की परवाह नहीं करते हुए निर्भयसिंह सिसोदिया आगे बढ़े लेकिन गोलियों की बौछारों ने उनका दाहिना बाजू उड़ा दिया। तब तक वे तहखाने के पास पहुंच गए और दूसरे हाथ से ग्रेनेड फेंका, जिससे वहां धुआं-धुआं हो गया....3/5

#Thread @adgpi Chief Gen Naravane at @OfficialCLAWSIN: Large platforms which were once mainstay of 20th century battlefield: MBTs, fighter A/C & large surface combatants, have been rendered relatively less significant in face of emerging battlefield challenges in newer domains
We have seen how the very imaginative and offensive use of drones in Idlib and then in Armenia-Azerbaijan, challenged the traditional prima donnas: the tanks, the artillery and the dug in infantry: Gen MM Naravane @OfficialCLAWSIN
We have also seen how disruptive technologies are now driving doctrinal cycles like never before. It may not be inaccurate therefore, to infer, that technology itself is steadily emerging as a core combat capability: Gen Naravane @OfficialCLAWSIN

[Indian Army - Master Thread]
- All current Indian Army related news and discussion.
- Link to sub-threads on specific arms and weapon systems.
From 2015 - informative article by @SJha1618 on growth trajectory of Army Aviation Corps. Would be interesting to see where we stand today.…
- There was a 2015 report from Tehelka (link not working now) which mentioned that Indian Army's Akash Missile Regiment has 6 batteries.
- Which will explain this image which appeared in 2017.
- For come reason, what would normally be termed as a Battery, is called as a Troop

#Thread @adgpi Chief Gen MM Naravane outlines vision as Chief. Advocates ABC: Allegiance, Belief and Consolidation. “We swear our allegiance to the constitution of India... As in the preamble Justice, equality and fraternity. That is what we are fighting for.
Gen Naravane: Belief in ourself, our organisation. Our superiors and subordinates.. We will not fall prey to vile rumors and innuendos. Belief is what will keep us strong.

Consolidation leads to continuity... Somewhere along the way there will be midcourse correction. #ArmyDay
