    Hi all.

    Here I like to ask about the use of animals in our defense armed forces so far I haven’t heard about it except couple of Labradors in Siachine ... certain animals are smart enough that were used and can be used even in today’s modern warfare...

    Some are:

    combat dogs.. most likely German shepherd.

    as we all know they can be used for search and rescue, but more then this the can be used for scouting and sentry duty and particularly modern day anti-terrorism and urban warfare.....

    Monkeys: monkeys can be used in particular eastern theater, and in jungle warfare, as in thick jungle drone have hard time to track.

    Dolphins: dolphin can be use for scouting where machinery can not be reached in peace time, like costal and near costal area of pakistan ( paki water).

    here are some links...

    Good thread!

    I will add pigeons from my side.

    Not very relevant today, but they were excellent postmen - err - postbirds!
