The 3rd edition of Vietnam-India bilateral army drill, “Exercise VINBAX 2022”, began at the Chandimandir Military Station here today. It will culminate on August 20. The last such drill was held in Vietnam in 2019.

The theme of “Ex VINBAX” is employment and deployment of an engineers’ company and a medical team as part of a United Nations contingent for peace-keeping operations. The Indian Army is being represented by troops from the 105 Engineer Regiment.

The exercise, with enhanced scope from previous editions, will strengthen mutual confidence, interoperability and enable sharing of best practices between the Indian Army and Vietnam People’s Army, besides giving an opportunity to troops of both contingents to learn about the social and cultural heritage of each other.

A 48-hour validation exercise is part of the schedule to assess the standards achieved by both contingents while executing technical military operations under similar scenarios in UN missions.
