They were not ambushed for God sake!The garuds were ambushed- ambushes will kill anyone.
but I agree that they’d do a better job of breaking contact, doubtful to me that the same number of foreign SF operators would’ve been able to take part in the subsequent mop op ops at Pathankot AFB.
Base security in an area infested with militants and preventing/ neutralising a handful of militants who were again bracketed in an area with no chances to move out in to the airbase are completely two different scenarios.I respectfully disagree. Violence of a surprise militant attack on a strategic location and its tactical interdiction by responders is better prevented by ISR capability than in any skill set US SOF would inherently possesss just by their shooting skills of being top notch door kickers. What I’ve read of that op suggests a vastly difficult picture of on the ground picture pervaded by the lack of actionable intelligence and paucity of tactical reconnaissance. That mission would be hard to conduct in the best of circumstances. My experiences in afghan with base security at suggest the same. Please correct me I’m uninformed in this particular scenario.
Lol are you taking issue with people airing military opinions on a military forum? Even the jai ho crowd are arm chair generalsPlz send them in kashmir RR , infantry , and SF boys will be more than pleased to slay them after all armchair kommandos truly knows about hell week , Recoil control , firing positions , different type of grips , unarmed combat , how to aim and list goes on.
Ahh can't argue with points so attack the debater instead Thank you for the indictment of the Indian education system.Military modernization of arms and equipment is going at very slow pace and yeah you guys are experts on c clamps , you guys know structure and management of army , fighting techniques , how to be kommando I whole heartedly say why do you guys don't join and change other than rattling here.
There was ISR up. However we don't have the comms or tactical capability/structure to disseminate the information to the troops on the ground post haste.What I’ve read of that op suggests a vastly difficult picture of on the ground picture pervaded by the lack of actionable intelligence and paucity of tactical reconnaissance.
Yes Forum is for discussion ( both positive and negative) not for debateNo sir. I'm the one with rationale. Many members of the forum just don't like to read and understand. The moment they see a post contradicting their opinions they'd cock up and shoot the messenger.
We are planning on doing such podcasts where Major Avinash will be having convo with other SF operators. Stay tuned.Avinash sir and Vivek Jacob sir should do a podcast together. Two people just discussing and having a conversation. I'm willing to pay for content like this
Sirji do you have the photo of Sig 716 bayonet , if yes then please post it again.Put me in to the same situation with my boys and small little tech upgrades and we would do it for you. And we were not Tier 1! And I can't write the reasons because typing is a pain in the .... I shall speak about it some day in an appropriate forum without putting the blame on anyone. Indians are one of the worst parties in accepting the mistakes and learning from there. Cheers
