    The four offical "rides" of the PM- the TATA Safari, Toyota Land Cruiser, BMW 760Li "Security" and Range Rover HSE.

    These vehicles are highley armoured and all custom made to serve the Prime Minister of the world's largest democracy according to the requirements of the Special Protection Group (SPG).

    Fleets of all four models are kept in a secure site in Delhi by the SPG and transported wherever the PM is visting across India and the region.

    @GuardianRED

    This thread isn't strictly for VBSS (they're not SFs) but as pics of those personnel are few and far between (especially those worth posting), post it here no worries.

    The guy in front seems to be wearing a Crewman-type helmet (extra space for headset, which he's not wearing). Never noticed before that VBSS had velcro shoulder patches (my bad).

    It's a Sterling, not a Sten.

    Having magazines is not required when in training/PR exercises. Especially when doing a demonstration for public. It's safer for the people that way.

    This is US Navy VBSS in training - As you can see the magazines are removed:

    This is from a recent outing for NCCs and many school children onboard the INS Mysore and INS Chennai (need to check) , this is posted on the IN FB page

    This is show and tell, safety first - hence NO MAGS
