    Makes no sense when you have such a large number of type-59/69 etc. We probably have over 1200 type-59 alone.

    I dont make purchases for the PA. Just shared what i heard from reliable sources.

    600 of them are upgraded to Alzarrar.

    AZ has better gun, armor, FCS, ammo and engine.

    I think we need to get beyond this "my chacha told me" otherwise we won't have a productive quality forum, just a bunch of frustrated teens overloaded with hormones.

    To the guys discussing Indian RAPIDs (Re-organized Army Plains Infantry Division), we've 7 x RAPIDs (confirmed) and possibly one more. Also, when doing armor comparison, remember that an Independent Armored Brigade Group (IABG) in case of Indian Army is bigger than its Pakistan counter-part.

    - IA (I) Armd Bde - 3 x Armored Regiments + 1 x Mechanized Infantry (BMP-2) + 1 x Medium Regiment + Support troops.
    - If I understand correctly, PA (I) Armd Bde has 2 x Armored Regiments + 1 x Mech Regiment.

    A quick question -

    (1) Do PA Infantry Units also have ATGM sections?
    (2) Or, do they rely on LAT/HAT battalion assets to be distributed to them as per requirement?

    Just for reference, each IA infantry unit has ATGM section which is a mix of Milan-2T and Konkur-M missiles.

    Thanks.

    Our armored brigades are tailored for their task, with all sorts of combinations in orbat available.

    PA Infantry units do have potent ATGM assets.

    It was fake news propagated by some websites. There are plenty of T-59s/69s available for handover to FC; will probably happen when pullout of army's armoured regiments from sensitive KPK areas accelerates.

    Hi,

    Sometimes it is all about what is available with what upgrades---condition and price---.

    It is just like you are shopping for a car---you look around for 2 months---you buy one and after two weeks you want to see if you made the right deal---you find one $500 cheaper---

    So---what are you gonna do---?

    Please try to be polite. Nothing in his post shows any Sanghi affiliation.
