time to cut chickens neck
View attachment 670403
I believe the Pakistani term is Akhnoor Dagger, to emphasize the shape of Pakistani territory intruding into Indian territory, whereas the Indians use Chicken's neck, due to them surrounding this area from 3 sides and thus being able to cut it off easily if they strike the first blow.

There was some serious escalation/provocation along the border in this sector from Feb onwards LY, but we are yet to hear anything official from either Pak or India about what transpired. However, if you just search for CFVs and the news of casualties in the sector, you can tell there was some tension there.

COAS inaugurated Burraq Combat Skills Training Complex (BCSTC). Great going.
'Integrated strike formation for offensive'. Is the concept similar to IBG of India? I might be wrong but wasn't Pakistan lacking in this regard? If so a good development.
No not similar to Indian IBG concept, please read the quote excerpt below [link]
The COAS also witnessed integrated training of the strike formation. All elements including armoured, artillery, engineers and mechanised infantry demonstrated operational combat worthiness.
further in its press release ISPR clearly states
Burraq Combat Skills Training Complex (BCSTC) aimed at enhancing mechanized elements’ crew proficiency in overcoming obstacles encountered during offensive operations.

In feb 2019 in sialkot/adjoining sector people actually leaked videos of PA trucks travelling on road (on twitter which were probably deleted later on) . What the uploaders did not know were that those trucks were from Engr units carrying ribbon bridges.

When ribbon bridge trucks are on the move then the mechanized formations are not far behind.

From the time when my father was in such unit in a strike corps in early 90s.

Beshak. Indian IBG will be proven a mere invested term as compare to what PA strike formation envisages and plans the future battlefield tactics. A net-centricity and electronically strong formation that has all the eyes and ears, is the way forward. The way I see it, there will be very few top professional forces yet again acknowledging PA's capability and change adoption per the time.
