Re: Parakram II: all services excercise on western front

Hey, nice work, Raja Ram.

Lets see what happens, Ram Bharose, I guess.

Man, these snide remarks from the BBC are hard to take, these rascals will be repaid in fine coin by their homegrown terrorists.

Re: Weapons & Equipment for Special Forces

The point is that in the first ring of security, there is high probability that contact will be established.<P>At that time, at every entry/egress, there need to be atleast a few with small arms with high fire rates/ Decent fully automatic machine pistols / good med range weapons.<P>Lack of an abili...

All the Delhi Police and the CRPF had were<BR>SLRs and brens.<P>Only the Black Cats had AKs. The SPG/NSG guys had MP5s.<P>All the dirty work of killing the terrorists seems to have been done by the CRPF.<P>If one is going to put the CRPF/Delhi Police as the first ring of security, one should give th...

Re: Snipers of the Indian Army

Folks in the US might have seen the NBC program on the Barrett ripoff - the Maadi Griffin 50 cal. By the way the maker of this 50 cal rifle is a retired school teacher. Amazing thing, it cost lot less than the barrett (1/10th or something) and is easily assembled.<P>To clarify, when I said breathing...

Re: Snipers of the Indian Army

Ah! A fine topic. The secret is in the breathing. Honestly pranayama can do wonders here.<P>As an aside, i cant imagine why good snipers would be hard to find in any professional army. They are only a handpicked few. We should have competent snipers.<P>As an another aside, check out the berbers of M...

Re: What kind of equipment do the Indian police have?

'Tough job' is an understatement. Allow me to repeat, a policeman (ie a street cop) is no better than a house watchman in India in terms of quality of life.<P>If we spent a good chunk of the money for improving conditions for the police, we would spend a lot less on defence via counter insurgency.<P...

Re: What kind of equipment do the Indian police have?

This is precisely why I was suggesting the shotgun as the effective low cost weapon. A pump action is reliable and sturdy.<P>In a way, I think all these terrorist strikes are good. They wake us up. Ours is a fri***g nation that thinks a 2.3% spending rate is excessive when surrounded by hostiles wit...

Re: What kind of equipment do the Indian police have?

Why do our cops not have 12 bore shotguns? <P>The shells are cheap, can be reloaded (so practice is a lot less expensive) and can be converted to slug barrels for more precise work.<P>Rifles are expensive puppies in India, where local facilities and infrastructure suck.<P>All squad cars in the US ha...

Re: Indian Army's Light Machine Guns

Another depravity of the pakis using these hollow points. Just spoiled my sunday for me thinking of the jawans who got shot with them.<P>It has been most upsetting to hear of reports in Kargil of jawans preferring to take a AK56 instead of the INSAS when they could lay their hands on one. As I said ...
