A Ghatak platoon is usually 20-men strong, consisting of a commanding Captain
, 2 non-commissioned officers
and some specialised soldiers like designated marksman
, light machine gunners
and radio operators
. The remaining soldiers act as assault troopers. Officers and soldiers from combat support arms such as Engineers, Signals, Artillery, etc are also deputed for specialist roles during operations.
The concept of Ghatak is really well visoned.
Team of 20 folks that can carry out small operations on their own.
The no of ghataks need to be increases tho
Maybe some 70000 would do.
