The helmet cover was custom made not the plate carrier . Plus why will they customize into a new design , their SF Rig gen 2 has 2 versions already and the quality is also amazing
The plate carrier looks pretty similar to their SF rig, they have customised it for maritime ops with quick release buckles.

Can't confirm without official confirmation obviously, and that will, in all probability, never come. Only update here is that they made custom gear for MARCOS req. , and that is what is mentioned in their insta post.

This is what they’ve posted on both Instagram and Twitter, nowhere is it evident they’ve supplied the plate carriers, only the Helmet Cover and flag patch. They would have definitely claimed it as an achievement if it was one of their own products in use like they have done before as Plate Carriers are not a piece of secret equipment, there is nothing wrong in showing them especially when it is publicly posted by authorised accounts.
Without them confirming it, there is absolutely no way you can say it’s their product, as you have claimed they have only said it on their social media pages

Those Helmet rails look flimsy.

The plate carriers have been seen for many years prior to this, nothing like any of Armasens products even with minor modifications, they would have definitely claimed it as an achievement if it was one of their own products in use like they have done before as Plate Carriers are not a piece of secret equipment, there is nothing wrong in showing them especially when it is publicly posted by authorised accounts.
They have mentioned explicitly that any further details cannot be revealed. So whether they have supplied the plate carriers or not, is a 50-50.

The PC's seen with MARCOs prior to this in Kashmir are a different design and camo altogether, these designs look quite similar to the PCs Armasen has as a part of their product line, especially the SF rig.

Thats an assumption that you're making, there can be n number of reasons to not publicly claim it.

Yeah that's what I said in an earlier reply, kindly read and understand properly, before jumping the gun.

All of the rail/nod add-ons on their helmets are always clamped on and not screwed in. Is this a philosophicall reason for MKU (as bolts are meant to reduce the structural integrity of helmets by a certain amount) or do they not have the technical capabilities to integrate these things onto helmets like the leading PPE players can?

Tata Advanced Systems too has updated its website along with new products. Their earlier website was pretty terrible.

Under the optronics section it is claimed that they have supplied night vision devices to various special forces including NSG.

MKU's whole MUKUT product was built around the no-holes-in-shell approach.

Pretty sure they can offer it if that's how you want...after all the version of ACHs sold to IA in bulk do have bolts:

Shiv Aroors video on Livefist covered this, Indian Army chose the one with bolt, but boltless version is available and shown also. We have to consider that Indian Armed forces are not their biggest customers so a lot of stuff happens there.

I think they have the capability to do so as their old High Cut helmet had a bolt to integrate MACS.

I think it mainly has to do with compromise in protection due to the bolts, AFAIK only the Safariland Delta X uses an epoxy based adhesive to hold the rails in place to go around the use of many bolts.
MKU feels the clamps are good enough ig to hold the rails in place.

The rails on the MKU helmet seems like an afterthought.
