The Madras Engineer Group (MEG) of the Indian Army is gearing up against improvised explosive devices (IEDs), especially radio-controlled IEDS. The MEG, which is also known as the Madras Sappers, has crafted a blueprint that is supposed to help boost preparedness for asymmetric warfare, as well as for upgrading equipment.
“Training a scholar warrior of [the] 21st century will be now our priority,” said Colonel Commandant of MEG Maj. Gen. Brajesh Kumar.
He said the MEG is committed to be more effective in meeting the needs of today’s warfighting environment. “As the combat engineering support of the Indian Army, we have a huge role to play,” he said. “Be it the conventional war or the asymmetric one, we have realized that the innovation in training using cutting-edge technology can outsmart the enemy.”
