Old pic. But again, the point remains -All those obsessing with plate carriers
@Unknowncommando 2 will Indian army consider Arad rifle as standard 5.56 assault rifle as I feel AK-203 rifles are effective in 300m range whereas 5.56 are effective in 500m range due to higher muzzle velocity, even Russian infantry doesn’t use 7.62x39 instead they use 5.45x39 high muzzle...
If someone comes up with a view of the way things are and it so happens that they're wearing rose-tinted glasses, it's on the other members who have a different, more critical view to come up and say what's wrong with that particular subject.As I have noticed, anybody coming up with an alternative view is hounded and disparaged, labelled a fanboy, their credibility put into question, and what not.
And let's face it, if the 'positive viewpoint' entails us either being ignorant and/or dismissive toward what we know to be facts, what exactly is that viewpoint worth? I don't know about others but I come to this forum (and to this thread in particular) to gain & share information, keep abreast of updates in deployment patterns, equipment & training of Indian SF...I don't come here to 'feel good'.
If there are members who do, then I'm sorry for being part of the 'group' that pissed in their cereal.
Yes, members are getting smarter. Their sources of acquiring info & knowledge are widening, and if they see a polished turd, they'll call it a polished turd.It wasn't this way even just a few years back around 2016-18.. but unfortunately that's the state of this thread for now.
