In Portugal we use the British system:
Agrupamento Tático Mecanizado- Mechanized Tactical Group
- 2 Mech Rifle Coys + 1 Tank Sqn
Agrupamento Tático Blindado - Armoured Tactical Group
-1 Mech Rifle Coy + 2 Tank Sqns

I say British system becouse (contrary to the US Army) they are divided even further in:
Subagrupamento Tático Mecanizado - Mechanized Tactical SubGroup
- 2 Mech Rifle Plts + 1 Tank Troop
Subagrupamento Tático Blindado - Armoured Tactical SubGroup
- 1 Mech Rifle Plt + 2 Tank Troops

It evolved from a British procedure from their Army in Germany during the Cold War.
The idea is to spread some SubGroups in Key Terrain Features, like road crossings, rail stations and small towns, making the Battle deployment and engagement of the larger Soviet formations. Then concentrate larger number of SubGroups counter-attacking those formations on flanks and rear. While the Soviet formations are "stuck" in those small SubGroups, its time for "Air-Land Battle" Concept of sweping them from the air.

Ammo depos with exotic vehicles as gate guard Ze Pakistani style .
There's also a extremely rare 9K33 transloader lying somewhere at a gate of a similar but well known facility.
By the way does anyone know the story behind how that 9K33 OSA Reloading vehicle ended up in Pakistan, since we never used those. ( camo is green on the vehicle )
Captured in Afghanistan during soviet era ?

@ Do the Pakistan Army has still dedicated mechanized infantry and foot infantry for
reconnaissance role? And anything like long-range patrols in hostile territory (for example Baluchistan and Waziristan )?

@PanzerKiel see its still in use, rocket looks fresh !
The RL-83 Blindicide is primarily an antitank rocket launcher, but other rockets can be fired. It was produced by Mecar SA of Belgium and was an improved derivative of the M20A1 Bazooka.
