Indian military train Uzbek counterparts in the use of Sig Sauer assault rifles

A spokesman for the Indian Armed Forces reports on the holding of joint Indo-Uzbek military exercises. It is reported that the exercise will last until March 19 and include several stages, including live firing.


Exercises Dustlik-2 ("Friendship-2") are held in the area of ​​the village of Chaubatiya in the foothills of the Himalayas. The Russian-Indian exercises "INDRA" were previously held in this area.

Aman Anand, spokesman for the Indian Army:

We train Uzbek military personnel in the skills of handling small arms weapons Sig Sauer. Many of our units, primarily the advanced infantry battalions stationed in the border regions, use just such assault rifles. And now we are training to use them and our regional partners.

Indian Army Colonel Amit Malik:

We will train the personnel of the contingent of the Uzbek army that has arrived to us, because they will be using assault rifles from Sig Sauer for the first time.

It turns out that 45 Uzbek soldiers are training in the handling of Sig Sauer small arms. It is stated that, first of all, the exercises in India are of a counter-terrorism nature.

Experts note that India is interested in deepening relations with the countries of Central Asia. This is happening against the background of the fact that China is increasingly spreading its influence in this region.

      I wonder why, because they are not used in Uzbekistan, as far as I understand. Then do not waste time on trifles teach another group of divers, they will also come in handylaughing

        Here, most likely (joint Indo-Uzbek military exercises), the question is political.

      He quickly became a global power, China. And gradually "gets used to the role" ... Children learn Chinese (whose parents are more subjective) ... Where will the curve take it? He doesn't know himself. The frightened USA is doing everything to make the "dragon" bared its teeth "... They spit, spit at it, twitch its tail ... IMHO, they were late. And the Indians realized too late.
      If China decides that a military alliance with Russia is beneficial to it ... Put out the light.

        Yes? hmm ...
        But what if Russia decides that a military alliance with the Celestial Empire is not beneficial to it? what then? ....
        I personally think that such an alliance is not very profitable, or rather not at all profitable ...

        Of course, good-neighborly, pragmatic and calm relations with China are very much needed, of course! and trusting relationships between leaders are very helpful. here all the advantages are obvious, it is not even worth discussing it.

        but there are no advantages for Russia from a military alliance with China. there are only drawbacks. unlike China itself ...

          China needs a Russian "nuclear umbrella" ... Russia ... And what does Russia want from China? Nothing special. Microelectronics, probably, and most likely technology. All kinds of consumer goods. The sales market for high-tech products (engines of civil aviation aircraft, and not only, BM rocket engines, and you never know what else ... food ...). They will find something to exchange.

            will undoubtedly find. are already exchanging ...
            that's not the point.

            it should be remembered that Russia has a good and mutually beneficial relationship with India ... which in turn has a very uneasy relationship with China. By concluding a military alliance with China, we literally chop off good relations with India ourselves and push it into the paws of mattress mats ... China does not lose anything, but we lose ...

            and second: Russia itself, having concluded a military alliance with China, is harnessed to the Sino-American confrontation. do we need it? vryatli ...

            good-neighborly relations with the Celestial Empire and friendly neutrality towards them in their upcoming conflict with mattress toppers, this is one thing (and this is very good). but a military alliance with China is one cost.

              India is too, how to say ... multi-vector. A military alliance can be with her. But there is too much Britain. Therefore, India will most likely fall off to the United States.

        hi
        The light, someone has already blinked, the dialogue about this is already gaining stunning momentum.

        MOSCOW, February 8, 2021
        As part of the re-signing of the Treaty of Friendship and Good Neighborliness, which will soon expire, Beijing proposed to fill the new treaty with epoch-making content, reflecting not only the desire of both countries to protect their own security, the security of each other, but also the security of neighboring states. In fact, we can say that Beijing has offered Moscow the conclusion of an official military alliance.

        It is important to note that what happened was not a sudden initiative from Beijing. Judging by the numerous reservations and statements, including those of top officials, this issue has been discussed behind closed doors almost since 2016, and by 2020 there has been a serious convergence of mutual views.

    Wow, have the Indians already started teaching the Uzbeks to fight? This is what the pandemic is doing to humans. Do they teach dancing too?
    In my opinion, the Uzbeks found the wrong teachers.

      I have lived in Uzbekistan for 30 years! The Uzbeks (and Tajiks too) treat India and its culture very respectfully (do not forget there are a lot of religions in India and these religions coexist quite peacefully!) As it was said here, the question is rather political and India, like no one else, can become an ally of Uzbekistan in the case of the imperial ambitions of China (they seem to me to be just around the corner) and Turkey. In my personal opinion, India is the only country that in the long term (for a hundred years) can resist China.

        Let me add you. The Mughal Empire was created by immigrants from Manaverrahr (now the territory of Uzbekistan) in the 16th century, it existed for more than 300 years until the conquest of this territory. Britain.

    Turkey has a strong influence in Central Asia, while Uzbekistan is wary of the PRC, which feels free in Tajikistan (Gorny Badakhshan is slowly being taken over), Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan.

    You shouldn't be so skeptical about the armed forces of India. The Indian army has many samples of modern weapons in its arsenal, and in general, India is a country that has been at war throughout its history (and you understand the history of this country from what time ...) with very strong rivals (you get tired of listing them all) ...

    It simply says there were anti-terrorist exercises, and they probably used a new rifle and showed how to use it. This does not mean that the Indians have already shown us a master class.

    knn54 (Nikolay), dear, bravo! In my opinion, the PRC quietly bought Gorny Badakhshan for a long time on the vine ... Many citizens of the Russian Federation know very little about the civil war in Tajikistan. How Uzbekistan mined its borders in the 90s is almost unknown. As they did not know from the time of the 7th grade of high school in the USSR, or they forgot what enclaves in Central Asia there were since the times of the USSR. And what are the conflicts over water or land poured into ... Also, many, unfortunately, have forgotten that in the 90s the supporters of the independent East Turkestan fought in the North Caucasus, and today they are fighting in Syria. But in the PRC they remember and know about it. Therefore, their special forces, in Syria, at times, take a break from training tasks. And wherever the fighters for East Turkestan fled from the PRC - whether to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan - the Chinese are seeking their extradition ... Independent India began with a massacre between Hindus and Muslims. If the Indian military is forging relations with the military of Uzbekistan - mostly Muslims, that's great. With Pakistan, the Kashmir conflict, perhaps, the Uzbeks will help suppress India at least a little bit.
    Yes, to everyone who scoffed in comments regarding the Indian armed forces. Do not forget, please, that India is a nuclear power with an aircraft-carrying cruiser, with our Chakra on lease, with independently built nuclear submarines, and some of their diesel engines were modernized at Zvezdochka for export Caliber. About our tanks, planes and helicopters from the Indians on the "VO" there were a lot of materials.
