Nowadays, every infantry Division on the eastern front has ATLEAST one whole armored or mechanised brigade.
Ustaad jee dil khush kar dita ay. Meray pas positive rating ki option ni ha isliye baiy bass hon.
Are they 1+1, 2+1 ,2+1 or 2+2 or variable.
By the way it must be raining tanks in Pakistan. And with only 3 regts of type69 they all nust be AZs and AKs. Perhaps the AZs being replaced by VT4s are also being used to raise these
Also are these completely attached to the inf divs or may be Indp?

They are variable as per their requirements....

They are completely under the infantry divisions, not independent.
PA armd divs:
1st Bde = 2× AR +( 1× MIB?)=88 tanks
2nd Bde = 2× AR +( 1× MIB?)=88 tanks
3rd Bde = 2× AR + (1× MIB?)=88 tanks
4×indp sqns( three of bde hqs and one of div hq)= 56 tanks
1× div recce regt= 37 tanks
Plus there will be an indp armd bde at corps level? =88 tanks.
Thus the total number of Tanks in a strike corps (excluding those in in inf divs) =441 tanks
If we add some of tanks i fro training purposes etc then the number will be almost: 450

PA armd divs:
1st Bde = 2× AR +( 1× MIB?)=88 tanks
2nd Bde = 2× AR +( 1× MIB?)=88 tanks
3rd Bde = 2× AR + (1× MIB?)=88 tanks
4×indp sqns( three of bde hqs and one of div hq)= 56 tanks
1× div recce regt= 37 tanks
Plus there will be an indp armd bde at corps level? =88 tanks.
Thus the total number of Tanks in a strike corps (excluding those in in inf divs) =441 tanks
If we add some of tanks i fro training purposes etc then the number will be almost: 450
-PA armd divs plus indp armd bdes of 1 and 2 corps= 2×450=900 tanks.
-2× mech divs(25 and 26)= 2×250=250 tanks.
- Armd bdes with inf divs (15, 10, 17, 16, 18, 14, 8, 11, 23, 40, 8, 37and 35)=13×88= 1144 tanks.
- Indp Armd bdes with IV, V, 30, 31=4×88= 352 tanks.
- IABGs= 4( I'm writing 4 as not all have thw regts) ×88= 352 tanks.
- Atleast 1× armd regt in Balochistan=44 tanks.
plus there might be one indp armd bde/regt either with 19div or 10corps.
Thus, total number of tanks (theoretically)= 900 + 500 + 1144 + 352 + 616 = 3512 tanks (atleast)
But according to most sources there are more then 60 regts = 64 (estimated)×44 = 2816 tanks.
That means a defecit of 696 tanks atleast!
And our published tank numbers are:
Alkhalids/ AK1s= 500
T80UD= 320
AlZarrars=800
Type-85s=300
Type-69s= 176
( Not including VT4s as these numbers are before its induction)
Also these numbers may not be accurate but I've increased them in order to match most sources especially that of AKs.
Thus total tanks according to type≈2200 tanks.
Such a great defecit!

Actually most of these figures are from his posts.
Gryphon would have been a great contributor in this regard and again some of my data is from his posts. His leaving was a great loss to PDF. Also I suppose he would have agreed with my data. The data of number of tanks by type may be off but not by that if formations.

Why you want official information to made public, do we have such details from India ?
