Captain Preeti Choudhary, Indian Army's Only Woman Contingent Commander Led R-Day Parade 2021

Captain Preeti Choudhary, the only women contingent commander in the Indian Army, on Tuesday led the overhauled Schilika weapon framework as it moved down at the 72nd Republic Day march in Rajpath this year.
The overhauled Schilka Weapon framework is outfitted with current radar and advanced digital fire control computers and can destroy wartime targets for low-level air defence in all-weather. It can track and shoot adversary focuses as much as 2 kilometers on the ground and about 2.5 kilometers noticeable all around.
Talking about her part as the lone lady commandant before the procession, Captain Preeti stated that she got the chance on the grounds that the overhauled weapon framework had a place with her regiment, not in view of her gender.
She also said that she last walked along Rajpath in the 2016 Republic Day festivity as a cadet with the National Cadet Corps (NCC).
She is additionally the beneficiary of the Sword of Honour for being an overall cadet at the Officers Training Academy (OTA) in Chennai
