The exercise provides an opportunity to Indian and Russian forces to train in joint counter-terrorism operations in a multinational scenario.

Indra-2018, an Indo-Russian joint military exercise aimed at enhancing the interoperability of the two armies in peacekeeping and enforcement environments under the aegis of the United Nations has started at the Indian Army's Babina Field Firing Range in Jhansi, India.

India's mechanized infantry battalion and motorized infantry units of the Russian Eastern Military District, deployed in the Primorye Region in the Far East, are participating in the exercise.

Indra-2018 focuses on special tactical level operations, which include cordon and search operations, house intervention, handling and neutralization of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), and integrated employment of force multipliers.

India and Russia have been conducting Indra since 2003, alternately at different locations in the two countries.  

Last year, the joint military exercise was conducted at the 149th Combine Army Range Sergeevisky and in the Sea of Japan near Vladivostok, Russia. The Indian contingent consisted of 350 personnel from the army, 80 from the air force, two Il-76 aircraft and one frigate and one corvette from the navy. While around 1,000 Russian troops of the 5th Army, marines, and ships of the Pacific Fleet and aircraft from the Eastern Military District took part in last year's exercise.
