US-India Joint Training Exercises
U.S. Army, Pacific’s Exercise Yudh Abhyas is a regularly-scheduled bilateral exercise hosted by the Indian and U.S. Armies which allows for an exchange of knowledge between the two militaries using a U.N. peacekeeping scenario. Yudh Abhyas has been ongoing since 2004, and is designed to promote cooperation between the two militaries while sharing training, cultural exchanges, and building joint operating skills.
Annual training with the Indian army is organized at the platoon exchange level to enhance our ability to conduct joint and multi-national operations in support of U.S. Pacific Command’s theater campaign plan by conducting a combined exercise with the Indian army to improve cultural awareness, develop friendships, and enhance cooperation among the two armies.
