MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian mechanized infantry in the south of the country is finishing preparations for its Indra-2015 drills with military units from India, the Russian Southern Military District press service said Thursday.
The drills will take place in November in northern India’s Mahajan firing range. The event will span 13 days.
"At the moment, [the troops] are practicing the norms of marching, tactical, engineering, firing and medical training under the guidance of commanders of units. Special attention is being paid to the issues of military use of weapons, technical and special reconnaissance techniques and mastering techniques of life support and camouflage in combat missions," the district said in a statement.

The countries carried out the Indra Navy-2015 naval exercises in Russia’s Vladivostok in June.
In July 2014, the Russian Pacific Fleet and the Indian Navy conducted naval exercise Indra-2014 in the Sea of Japan, to train and improve joint naval actions and boost the countries' capability to counter maritime security threats.
