Yudh Abyhas 2012 - U.S. and Indian Army military exercise Trailer - HD

This is a video I put together over the course of the last 3 weeks during an exercise called Yudh Abyhas 2012. Yudh Abyhas is an annual exercise between the Indian and U.S. armies. Yudh Abyhas 2012 took place in Mahajan training range, Rajasthan, India 70km from the Pakistan border. This was my first field exercise using the Canon 5D Mark II. I also used the Panasonic HVX for slow motion shots and audio. 

 The units that took part were from U.S. Army Pacific (USARPAC) including the 2-14 Cav Scouts 2nd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division from Schofield Barracks, Hawaii and the 6th Engineer Battalion (Airborne), 2nd Engineer Brigade out of Ft. Richardson, Alaska.
