Windhoek, 29 March 2019: Namibia and other 16 African nations concluded the inaugural edition of Africa-India Field Training Exercise (AFINDEX) at Aundh Military Station in India.

The 10-day exercise (18-27 March) was India's initiative and it reflects the growing strategic ties between India and the African continent.

The aim of the exercise was to practice the participating nations in planning and conducting of Humanitarian Mine Assistance and Peacekeeping Operations under Chapter 7 of the UN Peacekeeping Operations.

Ten Namibian Defence Force members arrived home safely from AFINDEX-2019

Is that a Dutch flag held by one individual?

Third from the left is not an Indian flag.

I believe you are looking at the Egyptian Red/White/Black flag. There are other photographs of the event where you can see the colours more clearly - it is just in this photograph where the black seems to have a hint of blue. Due to the way it is hanging, you also don't see the golden Eagle of Saladin emblem, which is maybe another reason it could be confused with the Dutch flag.

Saab Barracuda Mobile Camouflage System (MCS). It's a multispectral camouflage netting designed to be form-fitting on vehicles.

There are a few other similar products, like those from Fibrotex. What makes them really useful is that without too much time and effort you can completely change the colour pattern on a vehicle if you move from, say, scrubland to desert. Saab demoed an MCS system recently that included both arctic white and woodland green in the same cladding, changed by moving around velcroed patches.
