Everything you have described is what is wrong with our Army Para SF. We don't need more men. We needs conventional commanders to get the fuck out of the way.We need more men , more specialised transportation and more equipment . Roles of various SFs have already been defined in the army . Ghataks are organised as a platoon in every infantry battalion and are tasked with doing tactical operations which consolidates the position of a battlion during an offensive or while taking up defense of battalion positions , their actions have little to no strategic impact and their AoO is within a 10km radius of the Battalion HQ . Every para SF battalion operates in a specific environment and undertakes a specific role . 4 and 9 para operate along the LoC , 10 para operates in thar desert , similarly 21 para operates in NE . All battalions are already deployed in their respective AoOs . We had no para SF battalion to spare during the ladakh crisis and finally had to split a battalion from 50th para brigade to be sent to ladakh . They took time to acclimiatise and are now deployed there . Tomorrow if some problem crops up in sikkim or arunachal then we again will have no SF battalion to spare as all of them are already deployed in their area of operations . Taking them out of their area of operations and deploying them to a new area will raise many problems for them . They will have to familiarise with the terrain and work out new ops plans to deal with the enemy . Ideally we should have para SF battalions specialised in a certain role in all theatres
These theatres include
1) The Thar
6) Central sector
8)north east ( Nagaland , Manipur)
Our SF is of fine size and needs an expansion of two battalions to ensure all round protection of all the theatres
You for Serious?But why get Zeiss sight for AK?
What’s wrong with Red Dots on an AK though, I can see an argument for mounting it on a Battle Rifle, but an AK’s range is well within the useful range of the optic so it should be fine. Considering no one bats an eye when you see Holographic Sights on an AK.But why get Zeiss sight for AK?
Brother they are stationed in the most forward and remote base of our country , they have got adequate training and know how to use , modify their rifles better than you , me and all us keyboard intellectual sthey have even rapped the muzzle device and the trigger guard.
How are these 2 posts related to the SF thread? Please keep these discussions in the Small Arms Thread.
Its MARPAT not the “INDPAT” we have made standard.They released camo cover with the new camo
Maybe even already bought
Effective, i.e. the operator can carry the shield with himself and fire his assault rifle with both his hands simultaneously, without it they’ll need one guy to hold the shield and the other behind him compactly holding his assault rifle during an assault.Sorry for posting thus here but wanted to know the effectiveness of this system
But an AK would be difficult to flex around in that scenario thoEffective, i.e. the operator can carry the shield with himself and fire his assault rifle with both his hands simultaneously, without it they’ll need one guy to hold the shield and the other behind him compactly holding his assault rifle during an assault.Sorry for posting thus here but wanted to know the effectiveness of this system
Last time Valley QAT saw some shiietshow action was that time they eliminated a Afghan Pathan, I think his name was Sajjad Afghani or something similar, this was in 2020 I thinkHas this system been deployed in combat by QAT? Haven't seen any pic or video of it
