Matt Black with police lights similar looking and no body like in the pic.

Was part of the convoi with Renault and Ford vehicles but since i was driving myself couldnt focus on it properly.
I think it’s a support vehicle along with the white TATA canvas tops, probably there to tow and of their vehicles out of the way if they breakdown, don’t know if it belongs to NSG

Paras look like a ragtag bunch
take the tavors/M4s our of their hands and there’s no chance any of us would be able to pick them out as the most elite operators in the Indian army

Even the RR here all have ACHs whilst the SF guys (bar one) all have patkas

RR even seems to have better boots than the PARAs? How does this happen??


Beyond pathetic

Exercise Sea Vigil
Very interesting, didn’t know that MARCOs used MWD/K9s

This must be a BD/EOD tech as labs would only be used for explosive sniffing I imagine. They aren’t an assault dog and there’s little other use for them to a SF unit.

wonder if this is a new capability that MARCOs are working on and if they will be looking to field assault dogs like GSD or Belgian Malonois in the future as PARA (SF) have recently started doing (I imagine with inputs from NSG). GSD/BM can also be multipurpose and can be used for sniffing too, afaik BMs are used for explosive detection by COBRAs and in US SOFs most of their BMs are multi purpose- assault and sniffers

NSG ‘black cat’ commandos rehearse for Republic Day 2021 parade
Pretty surprised that they aren't using any high cuts, they've got them in limited quantities I guess but I assumed that this was the next substantial update they would make across the force not just limited to a few frontline teams.


I guess there's no rush to get them from NSG's POV if they aren't going to get COMTACs anytime soon.


What it surprising if how prevalent the MPXs are becoming considering there was a tender for a 1000 more MP-5A3s last year from them


Now have to see what kind of plate carriers they'll have on the day, hopefully they are the light-weight low-profile type that 26 SCG has showcased recently


Other than that, nothing particularly new since the last time they participated in R-day (2018?)

Hopefully they get some of those TONBO quad tube NVGs ASAP
