MARCOS is the short name for ‘Marine Commandos’. Trained in HALO and HAHO, equipped with the best assault rifles, sniper rifles and real time war equipment, Indian MARCOS are one of the deadliest Special Forces in the world. They are primarily trained along the pattern of the US Navy SEALs, with further training with the British SAS and compulsory training at CIJW (Guerrilla warfare) in Vairangte. One of the best parts about their training regime is the high motivation that is found in the members and their emotional training in addition to their physical training. Operating under extreme secrecy, MARCOS has carried out numerous notable tasks like the Kargil War, Operation Leech, Operation Swan, Exercise Balanc Iroquois 03-1/Vajrstormehar and many more. Nicknamed the “Dadhiwalee fauj” (bearded Army), MARCOS are the only Special Force after US Navy SEALs that can fight in water bodies with full-fledged weaponry.
