Thats a pretty nice setup he's got there. A DBAL laser unit, i assume thats an aimpoint and actual polymer mags, nice ptt and comtacs. Now lets see if this is all for the camera or they actually have this kind of kit.
I can tell you one thing, the SSGN believe in photo op supremacy more than our garuds

here you go
Since when the fook did we start working as hired kidnappers for foreign countries? 😠

Seems like a load of bull. Indian special forces going in so heavily armed to apprehend refugees? That too with an armed Coast Guard gunboat standing guard?

Seems very movie-like that we would go 30 miles off our territorial waters to apprehend a bunch of women unless they were classified as "terrorists".

SSG are a major propaganda tool for Pak establishment. This is all for show.

Am I seriously meant to respond to this? Beyond the typical 'they are so secret but trust me bro they are effective' rhetoric and aside from the personal attacks what have you actually refuted?


I'm not doubting individuals in Indian services have done great things nor their will but that doesn't mean the capabilities are there just because you want them to be. I'm sure there are millions of Indians who have the skills to be professional racing drivers but they can't compete against the combination of skill and training resources that are present in the West and because culturally it is frowned upon to have such non traditional aspirations so the end result? No Indian F1 drivers today.


It's not a perfect analogy but I'm trying to say that if we are talking about Special forces we have to have an objective standard by which to measure abilities. Just because a few want to fetishise poverty/jugaad doesn't mean this translates in the battlefield.


I said it before and people lost their minds- if you had a SF mission that needed to be done anywhere in the world and the global community was trying to figure out who to send, Indian 'SFs' wouldn't even be in the top 50 units they'd look at. A few tactical victories at home here and there doesn't mean they are legitimately capable.
well you should then complain to management and goi for it. corruption runs deep in indian's blood.
as for operation goes. south asia in a nutshell. even western militaries find it difficult to operate in it.
if i take the ex. of afghan. us/nato were able to push since they had the technical and financial advantage. you already know how many us soldiers were killed in afghan despite having such a good advantage.

indian sf can't operate in west, it's a fact. neither they have good cqb training like foreign sof. we ve seen nsg with scooter helmets during op. black tornado.

f2 actually, jehan daruvala. i don't think any f1 team would take him. since he ain't the best in f2. tho he is signed up in rbda. he started his career so late in force india when other drivers were at peak.
you r correct about the inferior gear. it's not the operatives problem like i'm saying.

Agree with the equipment part but during operation Black Tornado NSG were super effective so on what basis are you saying their training isnt good? If it is they did not adopt modern practices that's another thing but is their training effective, yes and they proved it.

we rarely face cqb situations. nsg has some good ew equipments and gear that should be first issued to paras and marcos.

NSG got them according to their own requirement, NSG comes under MHA and Marcos and Para under MOD why would NSG think about them? Marcos has decent gear. Para is the one suffering.

Stop being so naïve. Latifa did not like her gilded cage and wanted to be a real life royal runaway like that Princess Jasmine character from Aladdin. The mercenary who was helping her is Herve Jaubert.

Herve Jaubert is a former French naval intelligence officer who captained the US-registered yacht, Nostromo, on which Princess Latifa, daughter of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed, was attempting to escape from her father’s clutches in February-March 2018.

https://thewire.in/world/french-cap...-dubai-princess-case-to-also-be-against-india

If Hervé Jaubert is to be believed, the one thing he learnt well during 15 years spying for France's intelligence service was how to disappear. So in May 2008, facing accusations in Dubai of fraud and embezzlement worth Dh14 million (US$3.8m), this country's most wanted Frenchman appears to have done just that. He vanished.

This guy also writes books like this in his free time :

https://www.sapnaonline.com/books/sex-misery-muslims-violence-herve-jaubert-154100809x-9781541008090

All of this looks like it was done by India to improve relations with UAE - Israel.

This is geopolitics. Israel assassinates nuclear scientists by using AI controlled sniper machine guns and Chutiyas here moralize their actions.

Once this kit, starts getting standardized across SSG, SSG - N and the rest, tum dekho kitna fast Para SF upgrade hoga. I have said this many times but our soldiers are measured against Pak, all the time.
That SSGN pic isn't a recent one the guy who posted it on twitter confirmed it.

Indian SFs & RR are regularly carrying out covert ops. iirc, Maj Sushant also mentioned in another interview, he wonders how Iftikar Bhatt story got out, cause missions were regular.
Even Sub Maj. Chandravijay sahb of 1 para SF said the same in his interview, in a week's schedule they conducted 3 covert operations.
