    9 Corps + 1 AFSC + 4 PSOs + Chairmen/DGs of various Armed Forces organizations (DESTO, POF etc.)...all in all I would say about 20 or so Lt Gens. Maj Gens are in much larger numbers given that every single Div is commanded by one and then you have some organizations which have Maj Gens as DGs. I would not like to comment on the number as I a not sure of it. I would say 2+3 stars in the Army would be somewhere in the range of 60 or so.

    As per Lt Gen S M H Bokhari (former commandant National Defence University and chairman of the Prime Minister's Inspection Commission and Military Secretary), there are approximately 150 General ranking officers in the PA so at least on the Maj Gen count above, I am off big time.
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Where do you place Gen Ziauddin Khwaza who was appointed Chief by the legitimate authority of Pak,ie, the PM? Gen Zia did not organize a putsch. Nor was he self-appointed.

    ^ Why not?There are many more deserving generals who deserve COAS, JCOAS and other top slots.COAS might get 1 year extension due to WOT but Lt Gen Masood Alam can be made DGMO or COAS if thats the case because all the op's in wot are under him.

    Lt Gen Masood Alam is already due for retirement, rather i believe he got an extension as COAS wanted him to take the both critical operations to their end.

    DGMO is a Majo General, not Lt gen, so he can't become one now.

    Sir Ji, army has grown leaps and bounds, i believe we had 2-3 generals in 65 or so ????

    Brigadiers would be in hundreds. My rough estimate would be 400-600 figure.

    Whats your guess or confirm figure ???

    No, let the new minds come in who will certainly refresh and reinvigorate the defense of our nation. Have faith in the institution and not the individuals. General Pasha and General Kayani are fine individuals and leaders but they're not the only ones the PA has made or will make.

    It's going to be an interesting year as we see how the mantle of leadership moves in the Army. We're going through such an important phase as a nation that its crucial we have an incredibly cool and capable leader at the helm.

    I agree that Lt. Gen Masood Alam is out of the running. The other WOT argument would be to continue with the trend that began with Gen. Kiyani and have the current ISI DG take his place. If Gen. Kiyani is given a year's extension, this is a possibility. If not, Lt. Gen. Pasha has too many colleagues ahead of him to realistically get the spot.

    Also, Maj. Gen. Tariq Khan has become quite a rising star. I would not be surprised if he gets command of a corps. I don't know how the general command will look upon him in a COAS role down the road - I personally don't think it's possible. He is already too "exposed" in the media and well known. It seems to me that the COAS always ends up being an officer who is not quite a known commodity to the outside world.

    Any thoughts on succession? The most likely scenario I think is a 1-year extension for Gen. Kiyani. But who will succeed him?

    well 3 to 4 brigade's per div plus general staff requirements of the corps and other branches of the army, i would estimate 200-300 perhaps.
