Armour Day is celebrated by the Armoured Corps of #IndianArmy on 01 May every year to commemorate the commencement of mechanisation of the Indian Cavalry Regiments.
On this day in 1938, The Scinde Horse became the first Regiment to shed their horses to be equipped with tanks. The first such equipment was the Vickers light tanks and Chevrolet Armoured Cars.
Happy Armoured Corps Day to all my friends in "black berets". You are the King of the Battlefield. Have fun riding the 60 tonne "Ferrari" ? pic.twitter.com/CYxrXZZvMB
