Foreshadowing things to come

Jihadi PMCs

http://foreignpolicy.com/2017/02/10/the ... -tactical/

Heavily armed and expertly kitted with body armor and ballistic helmets, the men can be seen defending bunkers, storming buildings, and even posing by whiteboards giving tactical lessons. Though the titles of these YouTube videos are written in Russian Cyrillic, their background music is an a cappella Islamic chant known as a nasheed, which is often used by extremist groups in propaganda films. But the men are no ordinary jihadis. They are members of Malhama Tactical, the world’s first jihadi private military contractor (PMC) and consulting firm.

Malhama Tactical isn’t an enormous military conglomerate like the infamous Blackwater (now named Academi). It consists of 10 well-trained fighters from Uzbekistan and the restive Muslim-majority republics of the Russian Caucasus. But size isn’t everything in military consulting, especially in the era of social media. Malhama promotes its battles across online platforms, and the relentless marketing has paid off: The outfit’s fighting prowess and training programs are renowned among jihadis in Syria and their admirers elsewhere. It helps that until now the group has specialized its services, focusing on overthrowing Bashar al-Assad’s regime and replacing it with a strict Islamic government.

Meet a Bahadur Bihar soldier
Gunner Rishi Kumar of Field Artillery Regiment was on sentry duty when the fire fight started. He observed the terrorists approach and waited for them to come within close range. He then engaged them & was hit on his head but was saved by Bullet proof patka. However, the whiplash of the impact caused him to fall down. He immediately recovered and fired back to kill the two terrorists. Running out of ammunition he moved out of his bunker and tried to pick the weapon of the slain terrorists to engage the third. The third terrorist fired and injured him thus managing to escape. The soldier is from Ara, Bihar and has 8 years of service. During the incident Rishi has shown the indomitable spirit of Indian soldier.

Need massive hits on pakjabi army inside pakjab soon. They are being hit regularly in KPK and Baluchistan but nothing like hitting them in pakjab.

I am confused here. Our soldier sees the enemy and ambushes them (engaging on his own terms) and somehow gets hit without actually hitting any of the targets he fired upon. Recovers, kills two pigs and runs out of ammo! How does a sentry run out of ammo in his bunker and the terrorists still have ammo? Was he not carrying any extra mags? And where did the other three personnel get killed?

The 3 soldiers were killed while they were asleep in their barracks and the jihadi pigs fired grenades from UBGLs into their rooms. The injured gunner was one of the sentries who engaged them afterwards.

Now if the report is true , then it proves capability of patka. Perhaps a first time account narration. Patka vs AK47 with an impact force caused the soldier fall, but without scratch.
Long ago I remember was a long drawn debate on this..

The patka is actually bulletproof against an AK, compared to the latest greatest infantry helmets we are acquiring that are only proof against artillery fragments and pistols. In a regular battle, perhaps the new helmets are suitable but patka appears more suitable in a COIN/sentry duty type role.
