    Hi. I wonder how much those who criticizing Nitin know about intelligence? Having been in the game myself, please let me assure than Nitin has revealed no secrets which are not known to the major military forces worldwide and are kept secret only from us, the general public.

    Personally. if the div HQs are to be abolished, I think that is about the dumbest idea I’ve heard since 1960, when I first started following India. That’s nothing I am prepared to argue because it will be a waste of my time. Our COAS has becoming infected with the American Disease: whenever US Army runs out if ideas, it reorganizes. In my time I’ve seen triangular, pentomic, ROAD, XX Century based on independent brigade groups under a div HQ (probably the best idea they’ve come up with. And they’re changing everything again (will take some time)

    I have a list of 95%+ of Pakistani brigades which Rohit Vats has kindly updated for me; as of pre-IBG I had 94% of all Indian brigades. And I’m just an amateur, not a professional. My Chinese brigade list is 85% complete (the new one)
