That’s true but the original question is perfectly valid. With the current setup with no strategic C&C (SOF command) and an over use on tactical/small team missions are Indian units ready to take on a peer fight?I don’t take Ukranian sources seriously lol. This looks highly made up.
ive mentioned this a number of times but I found it so shocking/eye opening when it was revealed that it has to be be reiterated again. After the 2015 strikes into Myanmar, NC HQ instructed the SF battalions under them to be prepared for a similar operation across multiple fronts. As a result for the first time in decades and likely the first time in most SF personnel’s entire careers 4 and 9 practiced and coordinated at a battalion level rather than how they had been used to (company and below). It was this preparation that meant they were ready for the 2016 Ops. Now has this become institutionalised? Or have the demands from tactical taskings (CT/COIN) meant that they’ve reverted back to their pre-2015 situation and are hence not prepared for the next big tasking? I have a feeling I know which.
Anytime indian SF talk about themselves they are almost always talking about SHBO, small team tactics etc. not strategic mission mandates
