[Image: screenshot_www_indiantelevision_com_2016_08_09_1.jpg]New Delhi: Discovery Channel puts the audience through the toughest training of the Indian Army. The ‘Paratrooper Special Forces Operatives’ are amongst the sharpest and the deadliest soldiers who have earned an enviable niche in the Army. An average 10 per cent of the volunteers make it to this elite group, classifying it as one of the toughest military selection courses in the world.

On the occasion of India’s 70th Independence Day, Discovery Channel’s exclusive INDIA’S PARATROOPERS: EARNING THE BADGE will give viewers a rare peek into the Indian Army’s training academy to reveal the intense training programs these soldiers undergo to perform unconventional warfare roles. Preparing for the unpredictable world of covert operations, counterterrorism, frontline combat and law enforcement, only the fastest, strongest and smartest survive. Watch the awe-inspiring story of courage and commitment in India’s Paratroopers: Earning the Badge on Monday, August 15 at 9 pm on the Discovery Channel. The programme will simulcast on Discovery Tamil.

Known as Paratrooper Special Forces, these operatives wear the Maroon Beret and pin to their chest ‘The Balidaan Badge’ - the winged blade of sacrifice. To earn this distinguished honour, the volunteers complete a grueling 90 days’ probation wherein they are stretched to the limit of their endurance. Discovery Channel will give viewers a never-before-seen glimpse of a training module where only the bravest succeed to achieve the prestigious badge.

Bonded by their heroic commitment, the probationers transition through an extreme selection process and a rigorous training regime. Not tasks for the fainthearted, the recruits are put through a series of punishing physical and mental routines including wading through chilling waters, sleep deprivation, exhaustion, uphill and downhill speed march, and the ultimate non-stop 100 KM endurance run. Focusing heavily on physical fitness and psychological strength, the combat training encompasses specialization in weaponry, demolition, navigation, evasion, survival, communication, medical, language and unconventional warfare.

Learn what it takes to meet the exceptional standards of the most specialized forces in the world.
