PHOTOS: India’s Eastern Command Military Tattoo
The Indian Army’s Eastern Command Military Tattoo & Army Equipment Display was held in Kolkata from Feb 2-3. Apart from the usual “Know Your Army” exhibition, the highlight of the event was a sky-diving event followed by mock-hostage rescue drill performed by the para commandos of the 21 Parachute Regiment (Special Forces). The sky-diving team was led by Colonel Saurabh Singh Shekhawat, KC, SC, SM, VSM. Before the audience could recover from the awe-inspiring sky-diving, the mock-hostage rescue drill commenced with two Para-Commandos doing a quick recon on Cheetahs followed by slithering ops from two Dhruvs.
