    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.

    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

    30 AK 2017 (0).jpg 9+18 AK(0).jpg

    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

    Umm, nope, not yet. Will likely serve for a decade if no replacement is found.

    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

    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?
