The Special Forces Training School (SFTS) of the Indian Army has commenced training of paratroopers from the Turkmenistan Special Forces in Combat Free Fall as a precursor to a series of other customised professional courses which will assist in capability enhancement of the force from the Central Asian country.
The top institution providing training to the Indian Army's Special Forces is engaging in the activity after receiving a request from the Turkmenistan Special Forces.
The Indian Special Forces (SF) have over a period earned immense respect and reputation of being one of the finest Special Forces in the world due to its professionalism, operational expertise, and sacrifice.
Special Forces of friendly nations, including the USA, Australia, countries of Central Asian Region and the Middle East, have increasingly shown their desire to train with the battle-hardened Indian SF troops.
In response, the Indian Army's Special Forces have increased their engagement with their counterparts from friendly nations.
