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'
82nd isnt your regular airborne unit. They are considered a elite infantry and will be same as SFF. Also US Army's Budget will alone be 2 or 3 Times the total budget of ours. Stop comparing everything with US.

Ya'll Nibbiars not just Amerika but another nation's front line troops are also equipped with Zip T shirts. Stop living in 2000's.

SF is slowly adopting quarter zip tshirts. And i dont think US Regular Infantry uses quarter zip tshirts. Its the SF which uses correct me if i am wrong.

And this untucked is not for SF but for Regular infantry. Nothing Specific to SF out there. They might not change their camo along with infantry like SSG of Pakistan.
Quarter Zip t Shirts are being issued to regular infantry as well. Almost everyone was wearing them in Delhi cantt. Incidentally That's where I saw one of Major Jacob's CLAW vehicle leaving the Cantt 😁

Compare the size of the army, then compare the budget and do calculate per capita budget for every soldier.
Ya'll Nibbiars compare the cost of labour's compare the threat and then make a conculsions.

Ya'll Nibbiars Zip T shirst are now common every where in the world. Most of the memebers don't even knew that. And even a large part of the Mleecahs troops will be equipped with the Zip T Shirts.

Just compare Capital Budget. Equipment's cost almost the same. We spend much of our money on maintaining existing equipment or purchasing new ones. Which are important along with Infantry gear. Rest all is upto the Top Brass which they think is more important.

It pains me too but we cant just hop on trends we aint got that capital to do.
Also everyone forgets we dint upgrade infantry equipment for decades. Its easy to change 1 or 2 stuff every year not everything in a single year.
The point of MKU helmets they are a upgrade over the current helmets and using accessory attachments can be added. The First priority of the Army will be to give Helmets then the accessory.

Quarter Zip T-shirts are suitable for every climate except the cold climates and will be much more easier to maintain for the average soldier and cheaper to replace( for regular materials not fire resistant ones).

At first they imported american stuff for their SF then slowly they started making everything from upgrade kits to laser designators. Look at zenit co. now they produce everything, if only SSS got the same support from our forces.

This combat tshirt is pretty common and units have been seen with it

You know these shirts actually have to be functional too, the material on the sleeves has to tough and the midriff material has to be breathable. Pockets have to be functional. I hope these are functional too and not just for the looks.
