Apples and oranges, is this their diving kit? Are these over the beach operations? Have we ever seen them operating in the water (wet) with any of the equipment above?
They are meant to be a NAVAL SF and yet their actual maritime warfare capabilities seem to be the most backwards.
It's not out of line, this isn't how any decent Navy SF should be operating today, where are their plate carriers? Helmets? Comns? They don't even have spare ammo, 30 rounds and then what? hand to hand fighting?That comment was out of line. They were using that kit because it was a diving operation. What better than an AK for swimming through salt water.
This is the problem I see again and again with Indian SFs, they aren't training to fight, they are training based on what they perceive a commando is- running around screaming "COMANDOOOO" and hitting each other with sticks. When they emerge out of the water and are engaged the enemy's rounds will cut through them, the ones that are left alive will be useless after they've fired the contents of their sole magazine and they can't even communicate with each other except by hand signals
This team could have been from the 1980s, literally nothing has changed in the last 40+ years, unreal.
But but, they save their good equipment for ops, this is just a demonstration, yea right.
The AK is so good that's why no top line navy SF uses it for over the beach ops? This spray and pray AK with no sights is going to give them an edge?
If you want to get a mission done you ask Western SFs, if you want to get a Bollywood imitation of a Special Forces mission, look to Indian SFs.
