    17th largest military in the world, and they can't take out some ragtag rebels in the south and some drug grow-ops. :p

    Size has never been an indicator of quality. Training, Doctrine and Modern Ordnance is the hallmark of a successful military.

    Also just general esprit de corps. The reconstituted Iraqi army melted in the face of ISIS, meanwhile the Kurds were pretty much the only effective ground force and they never even got a seat in the strategy talks.

    India has 1,444,500 active personnel currently- it is the worlds' second largest military.
    An interesting irregular stripe or brushstroke camouflage pattern has been in use by several Indian Army units, since around 2001. A new general purpose pattern for the Indian Army appeared in 2006, similar to the French CE woodland pattern. Circa 2015, the Garud Commando Force, the special operations force of the Indian Air Force, adopted a new pixelated camouflage design incorporating brown, foliage green, and a hint of black on a sand-colored background.
    The INSAS has been the disappointing standard assault rifle of the Indian Army since 1990. It combines the receiver and action of the AKM with elements of the FAL, Galil and HK rifles. It is undergassed and of poor manufacture. It has been replaced by the IWI Tavor with their special forces and it is planned to be replaced by the Russian AK 203 in general use. Its LMG variant has already been replaced by the IWI Negev, while -for example- a 7.62 Nato version of the BREN is still in service.
