Pointless excerise regarding we have nothing to really point to between us

I can not summon up any interests we share with the Russians neither can they.

On a another note. Pakistan forces shouldn’t imitate there western counterparts. They look daft wearing shades.
The septsnaz are one of the best special forces in the world. We have previously had the opportunity to work with SEALs and SAS, now the Russian interaction should round off our experience. Over time, this relationship will only grow.

It isn't regular infantry it's the Russian Spetsnaz.

Did anyone catch the Pakistan SSG commando speaking Russian in the beginning of the video?
wrong notice their batches, its every year the same unit since 2016, these are Russian Soldiers of the mountain infantry brigade of Russia's Southern Military District Karachay-Cherkess Republic. I dont know why SSG is training with regular mountain infantry @Signalian ? Every year the same questions ^^

Actually, in the video, it seems like the SSG is mentoring them.

@Starlord I am seeing this since years on many different pictures, sometimes I feel that the Pakistan Army has a helmet wearing problem/ lack of discipline

Here in this pictures, COAS is visiting LOC Soldiers, check the helmet wearing style of all 4 Soldiers, which one is doing it right? Would you stand in such a way in front of your COAS, in my training we did get hammered from the first day how and when to wear the helmet, we did wear it always, only by sleeping it was hanging at my bed!

For the civilians, can you please explain exactly what is wrong with their helmet wearing style?

I am not complaining bro , it's just I rarely see SSG with tactical helmets , I just want them to be safe and of course they do take measures before going into operations ( they know their job better than I do , and care for their lives more than I do ) . Wonder which tactical helmets they are using ? You got any pics ?
Not right now.. posted all in the dedicated SF Thread.

These exercises r mostly shugal mela/down time for the boys....while at the same time keeping up appearances so to speak.
There is literally nothing that the ruskies can teach us at this point in time....
Just to give u an example the russian side is led by a full col. And he is leading them literally...
while our side even though is led by a LT. Col. But most of the time it's the maj. And Capt. Doing the "exercising". As when u have a company deployed 500 miles at the other end and an other company 500 miles in the other direction, u simply don't have time for fun n games.
Simply put our troops r deployed and the nature of the deployment are such that we don't have any to spare.
So don't take this seriously.....and the kit u see n the kit in the field are two different things.

Thanks bro, just as you said those without pics were mostly after clearing the compound or village .

Sir i guess Army should make a SOP , for the Helmets its not just for Look but for their own safety ..Standing like this in front of a high ranking Generals is indeed embarrassing but imagine similar thing when Foreign Military heads visits .

Mountain areas to operate are LOC on North-east and most of the border with Afghanistan on the west and north -west. SSG is deployed in all regions. Snipers on LOC are SSG.
