It's not every day that a common man gets a close look at multiple shot grenade launchers, 84mm rocket launchers or anti-tank guided missiles.

Know Your Army, an exhibition of the Indian Army's arsenal of arms and ammunition is a rare opportunity that is short-lived.

The mela, organised by the Army during the Independence Day celebrations at various places has come to an end. Children and elders alike enjoyed the event thoroughly.

It was not only a way to look into the latest arms and ammunition but was also a chance to interact with the Army. Many army personnel were happy to share their stories on various operations, some even took views of kids and children on what they think about the Army.

Here is a glimpse of Army's arsenal of arms and ammunition held in various places
