Re: India Border Watch: Security and Operations

No these are cumulative casualties from series of strikes not one. They are releasing only a few footage. I agree. This is more of a new dawn in Mil-Media relations. Also psych warfare to pakis as a teaser of what is to come as summer heats up and infil rises across the LoC. Honestly, i get that th...

Re: CT and COIN operations in India: News, Images and Discussion

A quick point to add to this discussion however is the SOP that small unit patrolling parties use in the LoC. Due to the difficult terrain, I know for a fact that our troops choose to forgo a lot of equipment that a standard 'western' infantryman normally carries. The contention is that it is easier...

Re: CT and COIN operations in India: News, Images and Discussion

Our BPJ's are heavy compared to their stopping power and would slow down a soldier at higher altitudes or in rough terrain. There are insufficient and ineffective NV Devices as you point out. I'm not sure if a bullet from our assault rifles are able to stop someone as effectively as more modern rif...

Re: CT and COIN operations in India: News, Images and Discussion

We do not have a huge number of drones giving real time intelligence and do not shoot people if they are `suspects moving suspiciously'. So our soldiers are invariably shot at first. If there is better body armor and better squad level weapons, starting with an assault rifle, we will probably take ...

2 IA soldiers martyred today stopping infiltration in Nowgam. RIP. Things are heating up. Along with increased cross-border shelling, reports indicate that SSG commandos, BAT teams and fidayeens have formed irregular units focused on infiltration and asymmetric warfare. http://www.timesnow.tv/india/...

Re: Army strikes terror camps in PoK

However hitting launch pads which include elements of PA, ISI handlers and fidayeens and recording it thru drone further exposes the duplicity and maliciousness of pak as it routinely...

Re: India's Retaliation Options to significant terrorist strikes

Pakis have a Catch 22 situation. If they captured a soldier it means that they are accepting that Indian soldiers crossed the LoC. If they captured him inside India it means that they have violated the border. That story is dead. Absolutely agree sir. Pak has to be wary of responding overtly to thi...

Re: India's Retaliation Options to significant terrorist strikes

I would ignore until confirmed or denied by govt. if they have retaliated and kidnapped one of our own, then get ready to escalate (this time by striking PA and ranger posts).

Re: Pathankot AirForce base under attack

The Punjab Police's complicity in the drug smuggling nexus has clearly led to an unsecure border all along that region. What steps can the Centre take in the next couple of months to plug in these gaps? Can CRPF be called in? Is that politically feasible?

Awaiting comment from experts. Thanks.
