Amidst India-China tensions, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi suddenly reached Leh on Friday, everyone was surprised. Along with PM Modi, CDS Vipin Rawat and Chief of Army Staff MM Narwane were also present. Situated at an altitude of about 11,000 feet, Neemu is one of the most difficult places in the country. This area is located on the banks of the Indus River. However, during this time many more warriors were involved in PM Modi’s convoy, which the Indian Army has been trusting for years. These are the same companions who have supported army personnel in areas ranging from Kashmir to North East. However, you would not have noticed these warriors. Actually, these warriors are none other than those dangerous cars that have been contributing to the Indian Army for years. So let’s know the names of these cars.
