Indian Army Fires Javelin ATGM

Under the instruction of a US soldier assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment, "Strykehorse," 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, an Indian Army soldier assigned to the 31st Armored Division fires a Javelin missile on October 24 as part of Exercise Yudh Abhyas 09. This is the first time an Indian army soldier has fired the Javelin weapon system. India is currently also evaluating the missile system for a potential buy.

Am leaving for Babina tomorrow morning to report on the exercise. Stay tuned for ground reports and exclusive photographs tomorrow evening.
