    I would like to share some rare pictures from 1965 war. Some of you may seen these pictures but other may not. These brave solder are Pakistani because there was no Bangladesh in 1965. Enjoy the pictures and be proud of the history either as Pakistani or Bangladeshi. :cheers:

    Pakistani gunners are giving an expert look-over to captured Indian field guns. The Indians left enough pieces in Chamb area alone to equip two Field Regiments. (1965 War)

    Do you have pictures of soldiers on Eastern front??
    I heard they strapped bombs to their bodies to blow up Indian tanks as they were short of Anti-tank mines.
