Rifle, ballistic helmet, plate carrier, provisions?

As it is if those Garuds jumped as they are once they landed and got rid of the para gear they'd be standing in just their fatigues, they are meant to be combatants not professional sky divers.





NSG buy small quantities of lots of weapons to give their troops familiarisation with as many as possible, but they aren't issued. The standard issue is still SIG-5XX and MP5/X

View attachment 88957





The MPXs seem to ave been bought as a hedge again HK embargoing India

NSG is still wedded to their SMG preference, they'll need to go through a doctrine change for SBRs to be inducted/standard issue
The fact that they carried Sig MPX and HK MP5 in equal numbers in the Republic Day parade, IMO shows NSG has chosen SIG MPX as it’s 9mm sub machine gun to replace/augment the MP5.
Ig they’ll wait to see what IA chooses for its carbine requirements, NSG may take a decision what to replace their SIG 500 family of weapons with. I have a feeling they will choose SIG SAUER weapons like the MCX and 716 for their respective requirements. Previously it is seen with Indian sec agencies like NSG and SPG buy an entire family of weapons within a single company ex. NSG initially purchased a large number of HK products(MP5, PSG-1 sniper) and SPG until this day has FN HERSTAL fever.

Last year NSG issued an RFI for several 1000 MP5A5s so the MP5 isn't going anywhere for them, like I said the MPX is just a hedge for them (IMO).

That hasn't got anything to do with NSG and they won't let that mess effect their plans in anyway whatsoever. NSG/SPG do whatever NSG/SPG want for themselves.

SPG is like any other force man, some good officers and some not so good officers

Just a plain simple carrying handle
Okay (carrying+rear sight, I thought there was a designation for that)
they are The old timers
Now the M4s mostly come in Flattop with extended rail going upto the forward gas block/front sight, and use a flip up iron sight for the rear

That picture was probably a decade + oldI
I don't know if any units still use the M4 in that configuration

Did I say they’re good or bad, I just said Indian security agencies prefer to buy a wide range of weapons from one company itself, NSG has mostly preferred HK weapons and SPG prefers FN weapons, it’s not really a bad thing as there will be some great discounts and better service and maintenance deals if you buy from one company itself. Only downside is when the company turns on you
