    Firstly,there is no centralised procurement wing which will decide what needs to be bought and under what specifications.

    X unit wants Tom Y wants Dick and Z says it likes Harry.And all three units are doing the same job.

    All focus is on buying tanks which haven't seen action since 1971.Whereas the soldier who is fighting everyday in Kashmir has no one to worry about his struggles.

    He has clothes which are not water resistant,boots which are not slip free,gloves which are made by his mother,sunglasses not allowed coz of his seniors,helmets which are old,rifles which have no night sights.

    But all we want is tanks.

    Its a shame the soldiers have to buy clothing and boots in our Army.

    And our Generals return the unspent amount from the budget so proudly!!!!

    Most of the fidayeen attacks get x number of soldiers killed in the first 5 minutes because of the confusion of the camo worn by the terrorist.

    Interesting picture. Any chance its the combat free fall badge?

    Is that the Commando Dagger on the pocket?

    What is the lady officer's role in the unit?

    I'm assuming they operate under Northern command so maybe 4 Para SF. i doubt 9 para SF would be sent for such exercises.

    Any one who clears the selection trials gets into SG and there is no exclusivity for SF or airborne .The martyred officer from 21st para last year in NE was from arty who got deputed into SG before being selected for 21 Para.

    I know somebody in the Army who did his para jump in his 40s.Am i right in assuming that he has a call from a Special Unit?

    He wont disclose and i dont know if you can volunteer to be para jump qualified for funs sake.

    I was referring to the officer with para wings and a probability of his association with any Special unit in past .
    Btw if a Special force operative got transferred to a regular unit for some medical reason or any such cause,will he able to wear the maroon beret or he has to wear the beret of the unit to which he had transferred to?

    Haha....Sorry Budd , I didn't got your question at first ,any way if he had got para wings at 40 then he must be of some special capability like MI/RAW or something .
    But my friend once told.me that leisure jump is allowed or something like that.. Honestly no clarity about that.
    PS: some one here had posted a pic of JK SOG person with para wings iirc.Gof knows the purpose of it

    rumours also mention their use in 1987 on several occasion while attacking LTTE harbours and boatyards. Heard them several times.

    What is the significance of a cross bow over a silenced pistol , Uzi/mp9 which are more light weight and easily concealable ?Even recently they were spotted with crossbows.
