SPECIAL HELIBORNE OPERATIONS DURING HAND IN HAND 2013
Indo-China joint training exercise Hand in Hand – 2013, progressively moved on to the next phase wherein Special Heilbrone Operations were rehearsed today by mixed companies of the two nations participating in the exercise.
During the day the the two contingents familiarised and learned from each others drills on Special Heliborne Operations. The practice and rehearsals on slithering were initially carried out from a static platform. These were rehearsed and practiced with mutual understanding thereby refining their drills.
Having gained adequate expertise and proficiency, slithering was practised from two helicopters. The companies were divided into sticks (small teams) fully equipped to operate in counter terrorism enviornment. These special operations for this exercise purpose will be used for establishing outer cordon or house intervention during the live exercise on Cordon and Search Operations to be held in the later phases.
