Indian ParaCommandos Vs Pakistani SSG Commandos

By Abdul Hadi — Published on 10/12/2016

The commandos of any country belong to their special operation forces. They consist of the army, air force, and navy well-trained personals. These commandos are involved into the various military activities and are responsible for the counter-terrorism operations, foreign internal defense, covert operations, direct action, unconventional warfare, hostage rescue and few others.


Here we will make a comparison between Indian and Pakistani commandos. First, we will like to throw light on their introduction.

Indian Commandos

Indian commandos work under the supervision of the Indian military. These are trained to conduct several special operations inside the government. All divisions of Indian military have specialized commandos. Indian commandos mainly belong to the three special operation forces that are Para (Indian Army), MARCOS (Indian Army) and Garud Commando Force (Indian Air Force). Indian MARCOS is more specialized as compared to the commandos of other two special forces. Indian MARCOS is controlled by Indian Navy but consists upon the specialized military personals of Indian Army and Indian Air Force as well.

Pakistani Commandos

 Just like India, Pakistani commandos also work under the supervision of Pakistan Army despite the fact other two sections of military Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy also have specialized commandos. Special Services Group or SSG is the major special operations force in Pakistan that works under the supervision of Pakistan Army.  Then comes the Special Services Group Navy or SSNG that is the special operations force of Pakistan Navy. Special Services Wing that was also known as Maroon Berets is the special operations unit of the Pakistan Air Force.
