If some Indian veteran came forth with such views, the military would do it's best to harass the guy and some very patriotic men would lynch the man if they could.

This really puts things into perspective. At least our guys don't have such restrictions and regularly participate in large scale training exercises, competitions and events.

I mean, cancelling training because of noise complaint? C'mon.
No such thing can happen in India. The army gets bored and blows up so much expired munitions that people start floating theories of a second Smiling Buddha.
Lol what? I have seen literal veterans calling Chittisingpoora an Indian army false flag

Suggest reaching out to any ex SF you know. major Avinash etc ask them as well. We have plenty of restrictions in the way we bean count. Every brass is counted, every dinged / damage weapon goes into your official jacket.
In official trainex they still have a budget of ammo that is accounted for and reported post ex. (If done in India)

PS the Korean guy mentioned the Thai and the Philippines. We should all look to the east as well. Paskal, LRR, Kopassus - serious evolution of these units has taken place in the last 15-20 years.

Muh Indian veterans can critize army and shieeeet india muh Facist country

Here are examples of such:
1. Brigadier Dhillon, leader of Operation Cactus Lily, calls Chittisingpoora a false flag and the army’s performance of ‘65 “subpar”

2. Indian army retired Colonel makes a whole thread which basically insults the Kargil war martyrs


3. Need I mention Lt. Gen HS Panag who repeatedly brings to light Indian Army failures?

Ok so got it they are bump helmets not ballastic what's the difference bump is lighter?
Bump is lighter, can’t stop a projectile, mostly used for civilian applications, and is used by militaries to carry heavier melmet mounted gears like panoramic NVGs.

Every army counts brasses outside the NATO sphere. Even the eastern one, be it singapore, thailand, japan etc. The way South Korea puts restriction is something else, its a cultural thing for them along with the mixture of majority conscript army.
Have you ever heard Fishing Strollers messing with the Naval Ships when there is a Joint Exercise is going on? Have you ever heard Joint Exercise being stopped for some petty reason. Much of it is unique to them. I know we are fked up alot. But the Koreans are something else they are just to unique to be compared with anyone else in the regard.
Also us being pushed into regular combat probably helps too, if they would have been actively involved like Indonesia and Philippines maybe it would have been different for them.

Yes it does, but when a panoramic NVG itself weighs around 800+ grams, add IR strobes, ear protection and battery packs it becomes too heavy, hence you’ll need a lighter helmet to ease out the burden.
