    Wonderful. You will get to see battle strategies and ground tactics from World War 2.

    A wonderful show put up to demonstrate wars from an earlier generation. Thankfully Pakistan military intelligence is from the same generation as India's so our @$$ is saved.

    Too bad Chinese military seems to be preparing for a war of the Future.

    Yours Truly,

    A Non Military guy. (so naturally, as a bloody civilian not smart enough to comment on the IA.)

    Hey Non Military Guy,

    You should have joined the services if you wanted to make difference.

    And in response to this do not tell that I had glasses so I cant join air-force or I am making difference by doing some other work.

    Let me tell you that the strategies which we use are more then enough to manage any of our neighbors.

    Are bhai civilian ho to fir ham logo ka hosla badhao moral down kyun karte ho.

    Love Mjr. Jai Hind….

    One humble response to Mr. Non-Military-Guy…

    If our strategies were so bad, then we wouldn't have been able to dislodge Pakis from the heights (that too advantageous positions) they occupied in Kargil war. I would recommend that you read "Gaurav Sawant's" first hand account of Kargil war – a book named Kargil. It not only gives an insight into the courage and bravery shown by our forces, but also the innovations that they came up with during wartime.

    Also, if you watch Nat-Geo, you will come to know that U.S & British troops are facing a torried time in the mountains of Afghanistan. To overcome that, U.S actually sent some of its troops to our School-of-Mountain-Warfare in Laddakh.

    Shiv, I wish to know the extent of progress in the FINSAS project and its implementation in these exercises. Has the Average soldier started wearing Ballistic Helmets/ BP Jackets/ NVG-HMDs/ Pads/ Advanced shoes and Digi-cam uniforms etc?
    In most exercises till date, I find them in the WW2 era attire – metal helmet, cheap uniform, a common '65 era green camouflage for every terrain, no jacket, no knee/arm pads, no NVG/HMD. So what is happening to the FINSAS Program? They are suppose to complete their first phase of implementation by 2012. Right? So has their been any real testing yet in such exercises?
    The FINSAS Program has been out of limelight for quite sometime. The last we heard was about another Goddamn RPF issued about rifles. What happened to the indigenous rifles?

    Shiv can you confirm if Arjun is participating or not? Aaj Tak did show a clip but can't say if it was from Opp "Vijayee Bhava:" or was just a file video. Waiting!

    Thanks

    Why is that tank dug in? Is it a part of a "Red" team?

    The sight of a dug in tank reminds me of T-72s of GW1, and gives me the shivers. In terms of practical utility, does this digging in give any significant advantage in terms of either presenting a smaller target or in terms of protection from long rods?
