Popular News

All the formations of Bangladesh Army have been deployed in self-responsible areas, including headquarters, all over the country on the occasion of its month-long outdoor winter training.   

The training programme, which began on December 19 last year, is going on with much enthusiasm. 

It was not possible to hold this training last year for deployment of soldiers to ‘Operation Covid Shield’.

This time, the training started with a new enthusiasm for four weeks with the participation of almost 100 percent members of Bangladesh Army.

For the first time, Field Training Exercise (FTX) is being conducted on logistics, one of the most important issues on the battlefield. As part of this training, supplies are being successfully transported to different parts of the country by air, river and rail as well as by road.

In addition, wireless, VSAT and internet communication have been installed in all formations at the army’s own capacity. In the light of Forces Goal-2030, the strategic use of newly added sophisticated weapons and equipment in the Bangladesh Army is also being tested in this winter training.

For these reasons, this winter training is much more extra-special and realistic.

The main objective of this month-long exercise is to develop professional skills by practicing various realistic military issues in order to prepare oneself for the service of the country.

In this year’s exercise, Chief of Army Staff, Principal Staff Officers, GOC Army Training and Doctrine Command, Commandant National Defense College and other senior officers are inspecting the exercise activities in various formations and providing immediate guidance.

The Chief of Army Staff expressed his hope that the Bangladesh Army would become a world class force by imparting professional excellence to each and every member of the army through rigorous training.

Like every year, this year also in addition to winter training, the army formations are carrying out various public welfare activities including distribution of winter clothes and relief, free medical services and distribution of medicines among the helpless and distressed people in their respective areas of responsibility. In addition, free cattle treatment, counselling and medicine are being distributed in different areas.
