Awain OK boss,
Unlike many other members, you don't fire random shots. If u have stated this figure, then there must be some truth behind it.
G Sir, i posted the figure through some research however i don't post here to prove anything neither do I get time to post now so believe what you think is correct.

There are roughly 330+ Alkahlids in total, including all types.
AK should be in +400 units of both AK and AK-I as we know previously from official sources (click here) that there were around 324 till 2014-2015 till end of 2017 30 more was handover Army for this plz see attached screenshots

which mean till end of 2017 we had 324+30=350+ AK and AK-I and as per one report HIT was targeting production of 25 tanks per year onward so +400 is possible till end of 2019

Good to hear this .... and If you witnessed the testing of 42nd AK-I in first quarter of 2018 then it prove that they are producing at least 16-20 AK-I per year, as it is known from official sources that till 30 Jun, 2017 total 25 AK-I (9 in 2015-2016 and 16 in 2016-2017) were produced

SO how many AK & AK-1 in service today?

IF they meet their target of 25 tank in a year then 25 in 2017-2018 or by conservative estimate 20 in the same year

AK-I should be
...... 9 in 2015-2016
add: 16 in 2016-2017
add: 20 or 25 in 2017-2018
total 45 or 50

rest are the baseline AK tanks

Would the original Al-Khalid's (first 320 tanks) be upgraded to AK-1 standard? Or would there be a phased production to replace AKs with AK-1s? Or will remain as is and just adding on new AK-1s to the tank fleet?

If budget allows.
