    Garud force has been formed to undertake special roles in the Air force for which it was found that adequate expertise needed to be available in the IAF itself. some of the roles being undertaken/practised are:-

    1. Combat Search and rescue (C-SAR)
    2. Special helicopter Borne Operations
    3. Air field protection
    4. Enemy airbase infiltration and strike.

    Garuds have participated in all major exercises of IAF including prestigious "Red Flag".

    the force is equipped with special arms like Tavor, Negyev and various G Loc pistols.

    Indian Air Force To Double Number Of Garud Commando Units

    The Indian Air Force (IAF) has decided to double the number of commandos and induct 50 plus units consisting of 40 men each in the force. The Indian Air Force will also provide new weapons and sensors for additional training.

    This decision by the IAF comes in the wake of several terror attacks on Army bases like Pathankot, Uri and Nagrota. A government clearance has also been received regarding the IAF's decision, the move is to ensure that terror tragedies are prevented in the future
