    I dedicate this thread to our Armed Forces and Defence Industries.

    This thread now contains official specifications and product details from HIT which will serve as a reference to all Pakistani's discussing our weapons industry on the Internet. This thread will also help us update our articles on different encyclopedia's on the internet, such as Wikipedia etc. We have a world class defence industry but sadly not many of us are aware of their spectacular achievements and products.

    Salutations to HIT for producing these high quality weapons and military equipment, indigenously. In order to ensure our safer tomorrow, they're busy developing and producing capable "Top of the line" weaponry and machinery for our armed forces.

    This thread is now open for all members.
