India, France Set For 7th Joint Military Exercise Shakti:

India and France are set to conduct the 7th edition of the Joint Military Exercise ‘Shakti’ between May 13-26, 2024, in the Umroi region of Meghalaya.

  • This version of the drill builds on the strong defense ties that have been gaining a lot of strength, as shown by Chief of Defence Staff General Anil Chauhan’s trip to France.
  • The primary aim of the upcoming joint exercise is to improve the joint military capabilities of India and France to carry out Multi-Domain Operations in a Sub-Conventional scenario.
  • In modern warfare, where conventional and unconventional tactics are used in many areas, such as the air, land, sea, and cyberspace, these kinds of activities are very important.
  • Joint Military Exercise Shakti is a bilateral exercise conducted between the Indian Army and the French Army.
  • Established in 2011, the exercise is focused on improving military cooperation, counter-terrorism tactics, and interoperability between the two forces.
