    Army will never leave FATA. BAT HQ are being planned in all strategic districts of FATA with DIV HQ planned for Swat. FC will do the policing work as you say and also man strategic check posts along the key roads and continue border security duties.

    CPEC security force will be a new raising with mix of army navy and FC assets with duties to guard the highways and infrastructure of CPEC. Their other main duty will be to provide security to Chinese engineers working on CPEC projects

    Lots of 100 mm ammo lying plus fc is not using tanks in tank vs tank battle but for firepower

    One tank regiment use to have 44 tanks in 4 Squardon so 2 regiments c x 44 each I guess for each fc kpk and b

    Swat has nothing to do with fata it's part of kpk settled area

    Also Frontier constabulary and frontier corp two different entities

    Frontier constabulary man border between kpk and fata plus Islamabad and Sindhi

    Frontier Corp man fata and Baluchistan plus international western border
