The training exercise will provide a unique means to the Pakistan Army and the Royal Saudi Land Force to align their forces, exchange expertise and enhance military capabilities through experimentation. Both the forces actively participated in training and enjoyed it with grace and high spirit. Combined Battle PT, Small Scale Operations, Room Clearance, Close Marksmanship, Firing and Rappelling as well as other advanced exercises were conducted.
