    You wouldn't believe that the IN receives tens of billons a year in budgetary allocation.....

    A force that can afford the very latest equipment but can't afford a few hundred modern assualt rifles/carbines?? I just don't know what more to say on this topic.

    Any guesses on who these guys in UCP are alongside the SPG Counter Assualt Team members (onboard the RO-RO ferry Modi commissioned in Gujarat)?

    Would be strange for MARCOs to be deployed for this role, could these be the infamous SPB?

    Probably. But I won't be surprised if they are MARCOs, I've seen those hard knuckle gloves in use by MARCOs before (although that's not much to go on, SPB could have easily bought them too).

    None that I know of - but some (like OCTOPUS & Force One) are using proper velcro-fastened tactical gloves (no hardknuckle, but very comfortable and easy to wear/remove, these types. First hand experience with 5.11 tac gloves).

    EDIT: Both are using the same PETZL model, it appears:

    I think you might be right in saying it is the MARCOS.

    A quick search - reveals that these operators could be part of Operation Swan . They must has be asked here to be part of the security for PM
