Last time this pic was posted in the thread everyone mocked him for having bipoded tavor with only Mepro MOR. But what people seem to ignore is that his hand is covering an awful lot of the rifle where the Mepro hunter should be mounted .


Regardless back to the discussion, we're officially so f*cked . I have no comments whatsoever. So everyone is now a commando , happy ? Every one will now be Vidyut Jamwal John Abraham Atmanirbhar Bharat martial artist bullet proof super soldier with Israeli Tavor 21 .
At this point a freshly raised unit would be the only plausible choice , free from the redudance and shenaniggans of army commando idealogy

Where can I know more about Lt. Gen TS Pathak (served as CO 9 Para SF as well as Commdt, NDC). Can you share the links(articles, video...anything)?

Explain what is happening?
See entire PARA regiment is being converted into SF with just a stroke of pen
This depreciate the quality of SF and especially its mandate
Basically in order to make everyone SF with balidan batch they are converting the actual or previous SF battalions into airborne
Thus removal of SF is being done that is we will have airborne force in name of SF and no army SF unit will exist here after

Hundred percent agreed.
AFAIK, only two Para battalions were SF in 1971 (9 and 10), the rest were regular airborne, and they did their job well.

I know that but then again 7/8 SFF battallions plus two TA units contribute to airborne capabilities
Why does SFF even exist if they are just airborne infantry? This is ultimate straw clutching

Remember ITBP showcased some ‘airborne’ guys with maroon berets a few years back, are we going to count them in IA’s airborne infantry count now?
