Just scroll through this thread backwards you would see it. The older battalions are okeyish but the newer ones not so much and due to lack of a centralized structure of Para SF the newer battalions cant even take advantage of older battalions experience and the way of working.
My friends are in SF, ( one in garud and one in para sf ) , I asked them about the the equipments they were using , I got a reply things are much better than before , even the training and other aspects , they were getting more involved with other SF's in terms of combined training and experience sharing.
From their word I could feel the Direction is good we , things are improving.

Actually this para sf guy was a garud Airmen in air force before , he cleared Army SSB and got commissioned as an army officer , now he is doing some sort of conversion training.

I wasn't aware that you could switch services like that before

Woah , traditionally from what i know , in the army if a soldier wants to become an officer he has to go for training at ACC dehradun . But wasn't aware that they could switch services

really man these all look good just in pics and poses. We know how the regular CRPF, or even the QRT is actually equipped on ground.
Some idiot posted these pics on reddit, pura bejati karwa diya.
Horrible elbow kneepads, drop leg holsters from the 90s, horrible BPJ, thermals on his helmet as well as on his weapon? All this kit only looks good to the layman, to us it just looks horrible.

Can you give me some examples , i would appreciate it
If you have patience to go through 700+ pages plus stuff from the older SF Thread , you'd get the exact idea what we're talking about . The only prominent battalions who took care of their equipments with smart use of commanders funds are 10 Para and 4 Para. Can't say anything about 9 para or any other unit , source : all pics posted

You should understand basic difference between photo ops done by these people and actual way they use their rifles when it needs be.
The concerned person directly made fun of how they covered their rifles from head to toe , should understand even a basic infantryman knows which part of a rifle can be covered or not.
Regarding basic procurement even I am aware how flawed and outdated our system is from the time of independence, slowly things will change and are changing , and we should acknowledge that as well , it is very difficult to equip such a large force from head to toe because of the financial aspects involved.

Even for photo ops , this is way too stupid to implement

I get where you come from, we have seen para sf put on elbow amd knee pads during demonstrations but we never see them during actual ops. That is what irritates me, why do they have to do these things for the laymen? Train as you fight is a thing so why do they have to put on these dog pony shows which just makes them look amateurish.
