    India should look on eBay where the Ukraine government is selling off tons of captured Russian arms lol

    Indian Army and the CCP have been having little battles up in the mountains ,they have big batons,sticks clubs and other blunt force trauma weapons and they just send it ,50 plus each side ,many lives have been claimed in these tics on a regular basis and seems to be semi organised and have rules of engagement and weapons you can use,as there is no Firearms of any type and no edged weapons either ,like old times which is great up close and personal and down to who is more brutal and faster and those that flinch or blink or those that fail to act with equal or greater violence its not a good out come for those folk .

    in summary india is wayy to divded and beurocratic to make decisions until a massive outside force threatens them

    What are your thoughts on the 500,000 dead civilians in the Iraq war, since you know, you’re shilling for the military industrial complex? 12:00

  6. Sonny Santana on January 1, 2023 at 1:03 am

    limey trained and not strangers to fighting and just like red communist China they have the bodies to spare they may have given red china the martial arts it doesn’t mean that they still can’t beef

  7. Daniel Curtis on January 1, 2023 at 1:04 am

    There’s a mistake. You cannot go between 5.56 and 7.62×39 with just a barrel change. You need to change the bolt face. Usually it’s easiest just to swap the bolt. So barrel and bolt would probably be swapped.

  8. tminus543 on January 1, 2023 at 1:05 am

    India would get REEMED by China in a war.

    Thanks for watching I really went down a rabbit hole on this one! Indian military is fascinating.

    Too late, India is using Russian equipment… now we know to be ineffective. Spent billions on essentially display equipment.

    They might perfer the 7.62×39 at longer ranges in the mountainous enviroment. Jence why they also orded the 308 Sigs.

  16. Riley Ernst on January 1, 2023 at 1:10 am

    I can’t believe that when India gets into its next war, it will be doing so without the Brengun. Which was phased out of active service like 12 years ago.

  17. Arjun k Aravind on January 1, 2023 at 1:11 am

    Yes America did good in Afghanistan!! Ussr also !!

  18. Ahmed Naeem on January 1, 2023 at 1:16 am

    0:17 Indian army so mighty dude at front is training with sights down lmao

  19. Col. Walter von Schönkopf on January 1, 2023 at 1:16 am

    Granting the _Dalai Lama_ asylum was only a proximal cause of the 1962 Sino-India War. India was the aggressor in the ’62 war. They risked and provoked a war with their "Forward Policy" without making adequate preparations and got their ass handed to them.

  20. Mark Miller on January 1, 2023 at 1:19 am

    It’s hard for them, they have way less money and they don’t manufacture most of their equipment either. You cannot sustain a long term war if you buy 80% of your gear.

  21. MoonStudio on January 1, 2023 at 1:20 am

    thay had pice talk now thanks to USA war in Ukraine

  22. Captain Harris on January 1, 2023 at 1:20 am

    India, for all of its border issues, strikes me as being both stable but suffering from the aftereffects of Soviet communism or socialist state. It’s why their farmers rely on government subsidies, why there’s such huge swaths of poverty, and why dysentery is still prevalent. But, they seem to have higher quality troops over China in spite of China’s pirating a lot of western military as well as civilian tech. Their primary internal and exterior threat comes from radical Islam. And India is learning that its skirmishes with Pakistan have repeatedly resulted in getting a bloody nose because of Pakistani F-16s. I guess during the 80s they felt offended by US Navy carrier groups traversing the Indian Ocean, and so they developed a small carrier force, but they are essentially updated Ark Royal British Navy carriers that use only VTOLs, or so last I heard.

    India could probably take on China in a straight army verse army fight, but India’s air force, like China’s, relies on old Soviet era designs. I think India also has some French Mirages, which are more than a match for China’s best Soviet / Russian knockoff.

    Their corruption issues are no surprise as this is exactly what both Soviet and Chinese governments have faced due to socialist or communist command economies, stifling innovation. They’ll probably blame it on the character of people, but the lack of a profit motive for private enterprise to develop the best that they can is the real culprit. India has some of the best scientists and doctors, but their legacy of allying themselves with the Soviets really torpedoed their economy, social structure, and military prior to the last few years. If you watch their news a lot of it is sensationalized opinion with some facts thrown in, notably news about military confrontations with both Pakistan and China.

    Their motorbike performances is the only thing I love.
    As for conflict……

    The bigger threats will come from the US and EU.

  25. Cromwell’s army on January 1, 2023 at 1:21 am

    Major upgrade for India should be toilet paper and 🚽. 🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫

  26. Milind on January 1, 2023 at 1:22 am

    US couldn’t win with ‘its’ M4 carbine in middle east and south east Asia and Russia couldn’t win with ‘its’ AK’s in middle east but India won all of its war with ‘its’ INSAS. 🙂 ‘Its’ always MAN behind the MACHINE.

  27. DiathenEridani on January 1, 2023 at 1:23 am

    That kind of looks like the gas operating system of the AK got frankenstein’d to an AR bolt action group.

  28. Hassan Zaffar on January 1, 2023 at 1:23 am

    Indian army will/should be running naked backwards…

  29. Katallama on January 1, 2023 at 1:24 am

    In my time in India IV seen many soldiers with a bunch different kind of guns, mainly aks but also the fn fal, the tavor, some m4, loads of shotguns as well

  30. ElTejon47901 on January 1, 2023 at 1:24 am

    Inspiration for this video was Indian buffet in downtown Indianapolis. The irony.

  31. SreeHari !!! on January 1, 2023 at 1:28 am

    China has more soldiers than us India, but from the last encounters and stand off at the border, we found out that they are not at all capable of fighting in that terrain.

  32. yuvraj gupta on January 1, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Basically Indian army has the concept of using AK which can fire 7.62mm round for anti terrorist ops and SIG which can fire 5.56mm for border conflicts. This is because 7.62mm bullet will instantly kill a terrorist while a 5.56mm bullet will effectively injure the enemy soldier, so that he needs to be evacuated thus decreasing the overall strength of the enemy.

  39. Wadi Sindh Da on January 1, 2023 at 1:39 am

    Chicken Tikka Masalla is indeed a British dish as it originated in the UK by a British Pakistani chef, Ali Ahmed Aslam, proprietor of a restaurant in Glasgow, invented chicken tikka masala by improvising a sauce made from a tin of condensed tomato soup, and spices.

  41. Haloden on January 1, 2023 at 1:40 am

    Annnnnd now India, Russia and china are getting closer together and mending relations a bit thanks to Russia, also the war in Ukraine and how the west is reacting to it and being ass holes to everyone still working with Russia and trying to force them to stop and destroy their own economy.

    sure if Europe wants to kill it self it can but leave other people alone

    thankfully Australia still has a great relationship with India and hasn’t ruined it by bitching to them about Russia

    Living next to China as India reminds me of Ukraine living next to Russia.

    6:11 Correction: The US and other western media was invited to that location the very day to examine the place and find bases but they could,nt find anything other than a dead crow and some martyred trees

  46. Bret on January 1, 2023 at 1:44 am

    I’ve trained pilots from all over the world. I’ve also been blessed to live in an area of the US where thousand of Indian immigrants have moved to. What I’ve found is they are extremely intelligent and hard working peoples.

    I believe India holds the key to peace in Asia. I would like to see the U.S. shift as much trade to India as possible.

  47. jack on January 1, 2023 at 1:46 am

    sure! money wins the war, not soldiers.

  48. WORLD WITHOUT ISLAM on January 1, 2023 at 1:46 am
