    I still see so many regiments equipped with the good ol 59s man.

    We should phase it out fast ASAP!

    Yeah, the regiments operating T-69/T-59 get AK, AK-I.
    I think T-59 should be replaced by AK, not upgraded to AZ. If all T-59 are upgraded to AZ, then new regiments can be raised to induct AK.

    There is no reserve MBT in PA inventory. Replacement of losses in war are necessary.

    Restarted 2 yrs back, with the armour reserve at Pano Aqil expected to get most of the AK-1s.

    Economics and power shortages.

    Were there any losses?
    I remember one AZ getting knocked down during Swat Operation.

    Few T59 were also lost though. But not large enough to justify war losses cover up

    Not COIN war. A war with India.

    Formation doesnot withdraw if replacements for losses make it to front lines during war. Replacements help to continue the offensive even if losses are met.
    1965 war, 1st Armd Div withdrew after suffering losses, no replacements.

    It’s very easy to say replace this and buy that but for a third world country with poverty and very low quality of life and almost no educational systems for masses (>50% not in schools after 5th grade or so ) no tax collection systems and low business environment , overall corruption in society is considered as Norm , people electing crooks knowing they are thieves

    paying for anything will not be easy and replacing anything with not be wary

    be an economic power first
    I think now is a good chance since new GOVT took over

    This country has leaped and progressed more than you can imagine.
