    Don't know if this video has been posted before, but it shows the LCBs in action and also shows their training regimen.

    Gives a pretty good idea about what they are going to be used for and what their role is.

    There various shock troops in indian army
    Ladak scouts and nagas also usedfor light Commando action in high altitudes

    Vikas regiments of SFF are also qualified for such actions
    President body guards path Finders are Also used in similar fashion

    Light action teams of Rastriya rifles are also qualified for similar roles in CT ops before SF engages

    This is the best Thing PA has done , raising Light Commando Battalions among Regular infantry.. Soon we won't be needing Zarrar and SSG's in every Operation .. these Commando's need better equipment and special Courses from SSG training and should send them to do Anti Terrorism Training with other countries like Turkey , China , USA , France , UK and KSA

    Much of the clips and pictures seem to be from around 2014-2015; since many of them are wearing phased out uniforms and equipment.

    As name suggests LCBs can be used for low intensity missions but they can;t be substitute of Zarrar as even in SSG different battalions are further trained for different roles. However they may prove to be beneficial in case of any sudden terrorist attacks.

    Yep, modelled on US Army Rangers, will perform Air Assault, Para/dropping, capture of tactical and strategic objectives, bridges, passes etc. Leaving SSG with true small team Special Forces Ops in the traditional sense.

    Some where read or on tv mahaz program every Corp will raise 1 Lcb so 9 Lcb will be raised or regular units trained as Lcb

    Similarly fc kph Baluch and ranger will have their units as well

    Lcb are trained for airborne assault but not para dropped , if I am not mistaken

    If we look at the video closely in one of the pics 7 Lt Comd Batln is written behind on the wall with insignia of Punjab regiment, thus we can assume that atleast 9-10 such battalions may exist.

    FC KPK have SOG as their special forces, no idea about FC Balochistan and Rangers.

    All members of LCB are para trained, thus they can do that task also, but not trained or specialized in HALO / HAHO as SSG guys are trained.
