Special Forces meant to do ops like surgical strikes. They’re called ‘special’ for a reason | The Print

Every country uses their special forces and elite units in different ways. While some nations focus these teams on more political based success missions, this is not the case for India. “In India, we have been simply looking at battlefield victory. SF units are deployed more on tactical missions rather than the broader, strategic and unconventional missions that should be their charter,” stated Lt Gen P. C. Katoch. In order for the special forces to be successful, they need an upgrade with the latest technology. While they are equipped with decent gear, these troops need access to modern fighting technology, such as drones and more cyber-based applications. Implementing newer equipment will increase their efficiency and lower the number of casualties.
