    As @GSLV Mk III said, it are members of the Special Frontier Force (SFF) that often wear the Tibetan flag patch...as many of its members are the descendants of Monks who fought the PLA, or themselves are Tibetan-born.

    Yikes what is full combat gear on?

    I will give you a hint: clothes - bullet proof (if not precluding mobility as per terrain) and weapon(s) .. that is full combat gear. Nothing more :)

    SFF was my next guess ... the sad part is that this is the second time the Free tibet patch has come for the "guess which unit" question - i missed the answer that time and again i missed the answer this time too .

    Im sure i will get it the 3rd time ! :biggthumpup:

    This is show baazi .... let me be very honest.

    Let me dissect the pic:

    Goggles? Reflective - tend to shine and 'give away' your position.

    The harness? impedes crawling.
    Plastic fastners? Clinking/unsnappinng noise

    Knee pads? potential noise of scraping/thudding
    Safe to say, velcro fastners will make noise too, if the edge gets hooked into something
    Gloves? hot areas in India - sweaty palms ... wet hands -- clumsiness over protracted positioning (you actually cant move for sun or anything as it is ALWAYS the movement which gets caught)

    Need I go on more?

    What you actually use ?

    a radio operator and a spotter some distance back in a 'base' or 'bivouac' with your gear keeping an eye on you, and hand signals, no intercoms (static or mis press in close quarters is a disaster) and nothing which makes even a little noise. We make men put on their gear and jump in the spot, till only a light thud of their feet is the maximum noise they make.

    Heck, even some of the Optic Fibre devices creak .. in room entry operations, we always canned those teams :)

    Ok but why so less pics of SFF are available as compared to Para SF, Marcos or NGSs?
