Army Air Defence Corps celebrating its 26th Raising Day

New Delhi: The 26th Raising Day of Army Air Defence is being celebrated today (Thursday, 10th January). On the occasion, several army officers and veterans laid the wreaths and paid homage to the braves in a solemn ceremony organised at the 'Amar Jawan Jyoti'.

On this day, all ranks of Army Air Defence, rededicate themselves selflessly towards the service of the Nation and their motto, 'AKASHE SHATRUN JAHI'.

The Corps of Army Air Defence was raised on 10 January, 1994 and since then has grown in stature and has proved its mettle in all major conflicts of the past.

The Corps is now going through a transformative period of modernization with induction of new weapon systems and upgradation of existing weapon systems.

The raising of the Akash Regiments and planned induction of Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) have been game changers in Battle of Skies providing the ground forces with more freedom, maneuverability and security. In the next few years, Army Air Defence Corps will transform into a technologically advanced combat force.
