    Problems that are addressed in this challenge are: Strategy making, Situational Leadership and Competitive spirit

    1. Situational Leadership: As the name goes, situational leadership is the need of the hour during critical situations and those who come forward to lead the show in tough times, become the leaders, instantly.

    2. Strategy making: Talent in itself is not good enough to win battles and history has many examples to prove this. Trojan War was won because of the strategy designed by Ulysses. Weapons without brains cannot win wars. Our challenge gives rise to making strategies to win it, eventually.
    3. Competitive Spirit: There is no fun in winning or losing, if there is no competitive spirit involved. Teams enjoy a healthy competition while striving to win their challenge. War Machine challenge is one such instance where the participants display competitive spirit to win the battle.
