I've often come across debates and people claiming the glaring error that is the absence of ComTacs or similar ear pro for our SF operatives and I don't know how many of you saw the Indian Army ADGPI Video about Para SF but most of the operatives clearly are wearing ComTacs style ear pro. So I'm not sure it is a matter of unavailability or uninformed brassbut a matter choice on the part of the operator as a lot of times Indian SF Operators prefer to not use gear otherwise commonplace on foriegn operators and amply availability in the Indian SF inventory such as ballistic helmets, eye pro and armour.

Even SG operatives have been seen using ComTacs style ear pro.

The second one looks like COMTACS with integrated comms. Good too see.

These are the only 2 places you will find it. From my convos Indian forces do not have them. these maybe sample kit for testing and eval.

Also IMO if such kit was unit wide you would see them with NSG first

Maybe so, but it is my understanding that considering how secretive SG is and how few images of actual SG operatives in action are available, it would be irresponsible to assume anything especially when the instance of them been seen wearing ComTacs was an active warzone and not a directed video as was the case for the Para SF. So IMO, SG definitely uses ComTacs, as for the Para SF, I might have to concede that the instance shows sample equipment.

Maybe our dude here loosing his mind over the predicament situation of our SF operators😁
Arent these the guys who put Bangladeshi Airsoft or god knows which security force photo with blue sling as Xclusive pics of Para SF.

We are a part of defence forum..we shouldn't take Instagram girls seriously.

SG operates exactly where the Para SF units operate.

I am really waiting for someone to prove me wrong.

I have on multiple times posted here that they are deployed exactly like Para SF.

But thats not the point.

Even if they have high class equipment and they are secretive..We are talking of a unit made up of Para SF officers.

So we are assuming that these officers suddenly developed top notch SF tactics and skill and equipment in SG

But when they return to their own SF units like 9 and 4 somehow all the lessons and training gets lost and we see operators like not giving importance to anything learnt in SG like helmets,shooting drills,comtacs..maybe also ballistic computers for snipers.

please refer to 747 pages of op pics.

And yeah it doesnt cost anything to assume anything.

About the 1st picture, Sir i thought the debate of comms headset - Earpro was over🙄...but nonetheless I'm gonna say it again; that isn't a earpro at all, it's an one ear communication headset like this one;
images (12).jpeg


This doesn't offer any cushioning to noise reduction neither they do provide any situational awareness to the operator. They are only for communication that's it...These are pretty normal in the arsenal & even in the Paki inventory too (everyone has seen the pics in this thread)

I was waiting for this response

So India, a nation that has put orbiters around Mars, that has designed and built its own SSBNs, that produces its own fighter jets and helicopters needs the Americans to tell them they should buy improved gear for SFs? This is highly insulting to the Indian SF community, do you think they aren’t capable of Identifying their needs and writing tenders?

India has also been fighting an insurgency and terrorist problem decades before Iraq but what does it have to show for it? Where are the super specialist units? Where is the specialist training/tactics/equipment that has flowed from this experience?

if all that’s missing according to you is American handholding then India may as well apply to be the 51st state of the USA
Boss its not about the budget.

It is about the quality of officers always.

You can see some of that in this forum.

But even these are very rarely in active duty. Infact iball computer earphone sets are more prevalent.

About the second picture, I'm not pushing anything here but that skull mask looks kinda photoshopped there. Maybe it's being done by a instagram pager or something else. It looks like a Ghost mask of Simon Riley of COD Modern Warfare series or maybe just a western operator's face being photoshopped there to make the picture little bit more intimidating to audience by the original uploader....

I'm not so sure about it this time though, but one thing for sure that the picture do have a ComTac ear-pro in it....

Which war zone was SG seen in ..... actively wearing Comtacs etc?

I, of course, remain a keen and curious (albeit amused at times) observer for all the SG related news.

So, am curious here.
