Excellent pics, guys!
Reminds me of the last time I went for an air show in B'lore. 1994 was the year!

Its amazing that everyone has almost got the same kind of pictures. I went on Friday and my pictures are almost the same but probably not as good as some of the ones posted here.

These Garud guys look the part as well which makes a change from the usual pencil thin chaps you see in special/elite force uniforms in India. These guys appear to have excellent builds like you see with SBS, SAS etc etc.

I remember when I crosed Wagah into Pakistan in 2004. The BSF guys on the Indian side had no presence. However the Pak Rangers on the other side were huge chaps (all 6ft+) with great trimmed beards and very imposing.

These Garud guys remind me of the Pak rangers. The Pakistani ATF (Anti Terror Force) were just like our BSF / NSG guys and had no presence in their cheap RS50 t-shirts with cheap ATF printing.

One plus point with the Pakistanis was the excellent modern weapons their police had - Heckler & Koch SMG's, no old 303's in sight.
