Stop trying to create exact comparisons with Western units. That’s fine for tactics and equipment but it doesn’t work between unit mandates. DEVGRU have a very very different set of priorities and support to anything India has and specifically MARCOs.So i saw the podcast, nothing about SG. Understandable. But you ask an SF veteran this:
"Veg Khana Mil Jata hei Jungle mei?"
Ssly ye Ranveer Allahbadia kessa admi hei yaar
If you want to see a podcast about Indian SF see this:
He talks about his sniper position vs Israeli sniper position....honestly he is right. I have seen American and Brits having the same way. He also says he was the only one to hit a target at 900 meters. So Major Avinash said we have marksmen who can shoot at 800mt but sniping is actually firing beyond 800 meters, So i assume that we have a real sniper here. Also he talks his time with naval intelligence and being trained to keep a cover Identity. If MARCOS has it's snipers doing clandestine reconnaissance, like he said that in one deployment he spent the entire time disguised as a militant. That seems some DEVGRU Black Squadron worthy stuff at a desi sasta level.
what someone does once is not the same as a unit having that capability/mandate
as said above- the talent is there but it’s not put to use. You can have all the ingredients of a dish but it takes a clear recipe to make it work
