The Singapore Army and the Indian Army are conducting a bilateral armour exercise, which will end on Monday.

The joint exercise, codenamed Bold Kurukshetra, is the 10th in the series and involves 690 soldiers from both sides.

As part of the exercise, the two armies executed integrated manoeuvres and engaged in joint planning and training. A highlight of this year's exercise was the integrated live-firing by armoured fighting vehicles from both armies.

Lieutenant-Colonel Ng Wei How, commanding officer of the 42nd Battalion of the Singapore Armoured Regiment, said: "The rich exchanges and joint training with the Indian Army in Exercise Bold Kurukshetra 2014 have enhanced bilateral coordination and interoperability between the two armies."
