Consultations on creation of Integrated Battle Groups (IBG)

Recently, the Chief of the Army Staff has said that the discussions regarding the creation of Integrated Battle Groups (IBGs) have been completed.

The holding formations on the western front and the strike formations on the northern frontiers will be converted into Integrated Battle Groups (IBG).

IBG is an essential component of the “Cold Start Strategy”. The strategy is based on rapid deployment of troops to the western front within a few days when a war situation arises.

About Integrated Battle Group (IBG)-

  • The IBG is primarily a brigade-sized rapid and self-contained combat force. It is capable of launching swift strikes against enemy forces.
  • Each IBG will be based on 3Ts (Threat, Terrain and Task).
  • These will be smaller in size than the division, so that there is fewer loads on the logistics.
  • The IBGs will be set up near their designated area of ​​operation, so that they can take precise and prompt action. Also, depending on their location, it will take no more than 12 to 24 hours to deploy them.

The IBG will perform both the following roles:

  • Offensive Role: This includes cross-border operations.
  • Defensive Role: It involves countering enemy attack.

Benefits of IBG-

  • Efficient allocation of resources will be done on the basis of 3Ts.
  • The composition of the IBG will be based on the nature of the threat. Therefore, planning and rehearsal will be possible in respect of all possible events for more effective performance.
