In the short clip, some commandos can be seen undergoing the training for Combat Firing and taking aim their specified targets.

It is to be noted that Belgaum-based Commando Training School has access to arguably the most arduous basic military training programme in the world. 

The extremely rigorous training programme helps the commandos in getting ready to be always battle-ready and successfully undertake missions as Special Operations, hostage rescue, counter-terrorism operations. 

Defence sources said that India will soon have an elite unit of commandos drawn from the three Services to conduct special missions of strategic interest to the country. 

Named Armed Forces Special Operations Division, the unit will be on the line of the US Special Operations Command, which was responsible for eliminating world's most wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
