    I'll post this again. Quad tubes for the lead operator to provider greater FOV. Rest of the team gets Mono NVGs due to budget reasons.

    The night vision monocular is a Mepro Mini Hunter NVG monocular with x2 magnification. https://www.meprolight.com/product/mepro-mini-hunter/ This paired with a BEL holographic sight is probably the first proper low - mid optic mounting done on an AR in Indian service.

    Given the way India works, they will create a mahila (female) company attached to Para SF battalion and there will be mahila (female) squads created for Garuds and MARCOS. This looks like a PR grandstanding exercise.

    Standards will be reduced. You will get the NSG equivalent of an all female commando squad.

    "Any of the three services" so Para SF are gone as well! Garuds were just confirmed gone! IAF decides to allow women officers to join its Garud commando force...

    Do Irish SF employ female soldiers? I did mention intelligence gathering or some Israeli style female SF unit like Combat Intelligence Collection Corps. In India, the NSG (India's counterpart to the FBI HRT) has a unit of female commandos. These commandos were initially raised to be...

    There is going to be separate standards for women. MARCOS wash out 90% of probationers with some batches resulting in no recruits. I expect some female NSG style MARCOS unit for PR and intelligence gathering.

    I guess the Panoramic NVG is for the breacher/team leader while the rest of the squad gets monocular NVG for now. Sort of like the South Koreans.

    That can atleast be rectified through constant cross training and joint exercises. What can we say about the Para SF? These guys are still fighting a 2020s war with 2003 era gear.

    I never mentioned Para SF putting a Raptor Reflex sight on an M4.

    Para SF started using Raptor Reflex sights with everything sometime around 2018. BEL Holographic sights are now complementary with Sig 716i and AKs.

    FAB defence modified Romanian MD 63 AK. Aimpoint RDS / EO Tech Holographic sights. This is probably from 2017-18 since Aimpoint RDS have been shunted over to the M4A1 carbines and EO Tech Holographic sights have been passed over for Raptor Reflex sights and BEL Holographic sights on FAB...

    MARCOs look like the Para SF robbed them and left them with CAPF kits.

    I've read through it. It's the mind of an General who was happy with the bloated pension bill, no CDS, INSAS rifles and excessive imports. Some choice selections : - General Bipin Rawat skipping old system of hamam to become CDS and introduction of Agniveer. HAMAM ...

    Hopefully peer pressure works to upgrade their kit just like it did with MARCOS.
