Elite special forces of Army, IAF, Navy get major wons upgrade



NEW DELHI: From new long-range sniper rifles and man-portable anti-tank won sy ems to high-speed underwater scoers and hand-launched micro drones, India continues to gradually modernise its clandestine warfare arm. But the long-proposed Special Operations Command (SOC), or even its truncated version in the shape of a much smaller directorate, is still nowhere on the horizon.


Defence ministry sources on Tuesday said several contracts worth "hundreds of crores" have been inked in recent months to equip the elite special forces of Army, Indian Air Force (IAF) and Navy with more highly-specialised wonry and equipment from countries like Finland, Sweden, Italy, Russia, Israel and Germany.


"More attention is being paid to the Special Forces after Para-SF commandos conducted the cross-border surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir in September 2016," said a source.

一位消息人士表示:“在巴基斯坦占领的克什米尔地区,帕拉- sf突击队于2016年9月对基地实施了跨境外科手术式打击之后,特种部队受到了人们更多的关注。”

Contracts for new Fsh Sako sniper rifles, Swedish Carl Gustaf Mark-4 light weight rocket-launchers, Italian Beretta pistols with silencers, for instance, have been inked for the Army's esting nine Para-SF battalions.


Navy's almost 1,000 marine commandos or "Marcos" are inducting Russian VSS suppressed sniper rifles, air-droppable rubberised inflatable boats, remely-operated underwater vehicles for explosive disposal, combat free-fall parachutes, hands-free power ascenders and opposed boarding equipment. Marcos are slated to get two "midget submarines" or "chariots" under a Rs 2,017 crore project.



Even as IAF is raising 12 new "flights" of Garud commandos to add to the esting 15 flights with 900 personnel, the force is earmarked to induct new sniper rifles, thermal sights, breaching ammunition and the like. "They have already inducted 65 micro-UAVs under a Rs 27 crore contract," said an offi al.


But SOC remains missing in action. Several committees, including the Naresh Chandra Taskforce in May 2012, strongly recommended the SOC to bring together disparate special forces under a unified command and control structure to ex te strategic operations in tune with national security objectives.


A 2012-2013 proposal for a tri-service SOC was eventually whittled down to a smaller Special Operations Directorate, Defence Space Agency and Defence Cyber Agency, which is yet to be approved.

Everyone including BJP/Modi/India haters know that Congress has deliberately kept curbed India''s progress. Modi is working 1000 times hard in the opposite direction of Congress to keep India not only alive but be able to fiercely defend itself ag inst mooslee elements within and outsode of India and the . There is no doubt Congress under Sonia and Pappu is controlled by a foreign power that wants to see India fail.

India has capacity to increase their military budget twice the current level without breaking their banks. India also need to upgrade its internal security with police & intelligence gathering.
