  4. unless the paratroopers have a large number of transport aircraft at their disposal they cannot be an effective force.also in order to modernize our paratrooper first we need to separate the special forces component from normal para regiment and turn it into something like the russian or chinese airborne units equipped with air transportable light artillery,mortars,air defence system,mbrl,light tanks,ifv etc as well as nomal para infantry.
