Please explain further.
@abingdonboy your take?
Most of it is covered by what others have already said bro.

For one, I'm not really sure about which radio that is, but it's pretty obvious that the radio cannot be bought off the shelf by the operator himself... So it could be an indication that such radios are entering service with Indian SOF.

It seems like one of those PRC-152 (Looks like, I'm not really sure which one it is) SDR radios which US SOF guys have attached to the rear of their plate carriers with attachment via a PTT into their earpiece. The earpiece is still shitty, but the radio seems like a good start.

Apart from that, the plate carrier looks solid. Rides high up on the chest.. pretty contemporary... Looks lightweight and no frills as well.. so ergonomic in that sense too.

Yeah. I thought that was an SDR too. That is the most important part of the guy's kit..

Love your new signature..

I think the real meat of procurement would be Peltors, these rigs and LRP rigs, dedicated and advanced transportation assets (highly important), specialized equipment (Jammers, SOFLAM/ other laser target designators (highly important), NVGs/Thermals (Highly important). The cherry on top would be versatile rifles like CAR-816 or at least the P-72 (it's far more versatile than anything Kalashnikov can throw at us) and rifle accessories like all kinds of grips, suppressors (preferably SOCOM556 SB2/MINI2 because they're excellent) for a standard issue 5.56 rifle with Mk-262 mod 1 ammunition which is an excellent round (especially for special operations). We also need a 300blk rifle if we ever get a tier 1 urban unit, NSG should be on top of it right now along with peltors and NVGs.

How about 458 SOCOM for Kashmir ops? RR would love it ❤.

Found this article by Lt Gen P C Katoch, pretty insightful on what actually needs to be done to reduce the budget. If we were to follow through (which I highly doubt we will), I'd would do us so much good if we invested all of the new funds into our special operations or for developing two full-fledged premiere urban warfare training centers for conventional and special operations...

We will adopt a structure similar to integrated brigades after the tri service commands become operational.

This meme sums up shifu ji.

Jokes aside, this was a legit tactic used during the medieval period against heavily armored foes. Not much thrust could be generated to pierce through steel armor and if Mace or Warhammer was not available, then this technique called Half Swording was used.
But I do concur with your point about Shifuji. he is definitely a joke.
