OMG! looks like WWII !
Billions of dollars being spent on tanks, ships and fighter jets but the typical army jawaan still rushes into battle with nothing more than his wits and his family's prayers. World over, the face of the warfare has changed yet the equipment fit of the Indian army jawaan remains pathetic.
Such bravado-filled, socialistic era army displays may have impressed the folk of yesterday but today's information technology-enabled informed public knows better and instantly compares the look and equipment fit of the indian jawaan with his contemporaries abroad and unanimously gives it's valued judgement — "BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
Sigh! I love the internet.
Shiv! What are the jawaans carrying in the bags on their back? Their tiffin boxes? These jawaans look just like the jawaans in an Indian Army poster which used to hang in my school's NCC meeting room back in the 1980s. Seriously… when will this army start looking like a modern army?!!!
They are certainly better than the Vietcongs in all respects. I wish them all success.
Our poor jawans are used as cannon fodder but our big fat and HONEST generals…. Our armed forces need an overhaul just like our entire country!Pramendra
WTF!!! I thought such battle charges were ancient history…last seen during 1965 Indo-Pak war. I am not at all impressed by such antics. Really who is commanding the Western Command! Some old general is it? Seems like Cannon-fodder to me or worse…LMG-Fodder. What a shame and waste of resources….! Damn these army generals.
Huh this pic is funny.
Wonder how advanced the Chinese or Pakistani army is in terms of Combat armor and weapons?
you boys need to pay more taxes…anyway looks like things are stirring…have a read of this…maybe BR boys need to comment:
well i seen american soldiers too rushing in same way but in straight line in iraq streets
I agree with KVR. This is just a display for media and the consumption of the assembled audience. The setting with a fort like wall in the background and perfectly manicured grounds is just fit for giving such inane displays.
Had it been a movie we would have heard shouts of "har har mahadev" and/or "jo bole so nihal" as well 🙂
take it easy.
hahaha this pics are so funny ! look at them charge into battle like it was WW1 ! I pity these guys who are ready to die for india but our babus dont mind sending them to the slaughterhouse.
MPatel, the RATshakers have already provided all the details you need. If only you visited their site..
@ ANON 9:41hey dude, you speak as if you are at DMO office… Don't forget that BRF is also a keyboard corps with copyNpaste generals…
I like the last picture – open your mouth and say 'Aah'
the only thing i want to say is….
our Dhruv in first picture looks beautiful…..
ANON 8:57 PM,
BRF webmasters include published defence studies authors, aero/ME/EE/CS/Nuke Physics profs, aeromedicine doctors etc., In other words well regarded experts who have corresponded with Indian as well foreign military officers and experts (including one PAF veteran). The fact that you don't have even a fake ID, says everything about your credentials – rather the utter lack of any competence whatsoever. So how about piping down?
Shiv,You have not allowed my last comment which was free of abusive words but contained unpalatable truth. There are very few good and honest journalists left. Please don't join the ranks of Burkha Dutt (parrot whatever Nira Radia tells her for some money – and she is known as most "bold" TV journalist). In the Country of the Blind the One-Eyed Man is King.

It is expenditure on Defense which gives you freedom to wite such a piece on this blog..
Or you would be cooking for someone in a Talibani ghetto..May be someting else..
Freedom of alternatives is the cornerstone of Liberty. Expenditure on Defense provides you an alternative.

How is exp on defense related to my personal freedom?And How exp on defense provides me an "alternative" which is the cornerstone of "liberty"?You are sounding like George Bush Jnr, Fighting 3 trillion $ war for "freedom" which has indirectly led to this global recession where people are losing lot more than "freedom" i.e. the shirt on their backs and roof over their heads.
ok… just remove the doors and window grills (and security personnel if u have hired) of your house…. lets see how deep your sleep can get… so much so for SENSE OF SECURITY… IDIOT..becoz u have never been insecure, you have no idea what it is to be INSECURED….
