3D printing titanium stuff
Same मुद्रक can sit in some remote Battalion HQ and print spares? :hmm:
Would be first of its kind surgery for the Army hospitals, but there are already academia-hospital partnerships in India where the same kind of surgeries are being done for a while now. Titanium, specifically CP-titanium, is low modulus and corrosion resistant, and hence, very bio-compatible. BTW, this involves not just 3D printing but also 3D scanning, because maxillofacial implants are highly customized to the patient. Once met a guy from CSIR who worked on this stuff.
.
But getting 3D printing to work for battalion HQ level is almost completely impractical right now, especially for metals. Metal 3D printers (SLS) cost quite a lot. A more practical approach would be incorporating this in the Navy first. Ships printing a few of their own spares. Although the cost-to-benefit analysis would likely not support such an exercise just yet.

Pictures are better than words from anonymous sources
I have been saying this since the beginning, but the gov doesn't seem to do so. All these MSM which get all classified info regarding politics, can't they manage a few pics/videos of the clash?

Started missing insas, every image I see is of soldier armed with sig 716, as if we ordered 7 lakhs rifles instead of 70k. Koi bathaye sig ka rakthabhishek hua ki nahin.
Ye lo Ji
Aapki Insas ki Tamanna puri Ho Jaaye
Most infantry media comes from northern command, forward units there have Sigs.
These are from Northern command btw

An interesting coincidence during the 1965 Operations both sides captured a couple of Commanding Officers each. the Indians bagged the COs of the 16ᵗʰ Punjab and 4ᵗʰ Cavalry; the Pakistanis took into captivity the COs of the 4ᵗʰ Maratha Light Infantry and the 4ᵗʰ Sikh.
