Their frontline combat units are getting combat shirts- marines, 82nd and some infantry units. in the near future this will be the standard for them, only POGs will run around with untucked shirts


82nd airborne (not SF, airborne infantry) in Kabul:

Indian army always 20+ years behind even when they do something 'new'
I wouldn't take this as norm for one, for another the Para airborne has been running a lot if quarter zips for some time now.

Ya'll Nibbiars from this I remember a story one person wanted to totally Amerikanize his country and due to this got over thrown from his country. Any one trying to simply wants us to copy the Ameriakans remember this person's tells.

Why to copy everything American.....shoulder tabs were good and gave some feel
Yes c3 has mtp camo but retains shoulder tags
In Sri Lanka, we lost a good bunch of officers, coz they LTTE snipers were specifically trained to grease the highest ranking officer, and work their way down the ranks (ironically by ourselves)
To the point that the officers would just rip away epaulettes and shoulder tabs in their uniforms and just carry a rucksack, hoping it would help
You see?
The chest mounted rank indications are meant to be discrete
Indian army still uses Epaulettes, "the feel" doesn't help when bullets start flying

This is the chief of general staff, United States Marine Corps, literally the highest ranking dude in the corps

This guy is a private (PFC E-2) in the same airport, now imagine you are an enemy sniper salivating to grease an officer

Targets like Major Anuj Sood or Colonel Ashutosh Sharma are considered HVTs, the Jihadipigs will die a thousand deaths if it means getting hands on high ranking officers

The brightly coloured epaulettes needs to go

Ranks need to be a small velcro patch that goes on the plate carrier instead of the shoulders

Ya'll Nibbiars your total assumption is that the patch are visible or have bright colour in reality now it's totally opposites.

It's not stupid
Ranks need to be there, just a little more discretely
Ya'll Nibbiars ranks should be there and can be on the shoulders patches discretely and @SGOperative future doesn't looks bright if is going to go against work hierarchy. And sounds like a communist.

Your assumption is that I made an assumption
I did not assume anything, there literally loads of pics available with the shoulder tabs and Red coloured Regiment connotation at the clearly visible, you just need a lil patience

Its from exercises and not actual combat deployment tho it should not be there too.
All pics are from media briefings or media presence
These two locations are definitely not safe places to be ID’d as a senior officer. First pic is very much a public location in J&K and second one too is in J&K in the funeral of a martyr. Media is presence is definitely no guarantee of safety, in fact killing a senior officer in front of the media would be most terror groups wet dream.
