Would you summarize, what the Pakistani armored Corps has to face when it will be challenged, by the Indian Army, don’t worry it is not off topic, just a wake up call for everyone to see the reality !

Apart from Brig Nisar, any other PA armor commander comes in your mind who comes close to or is better than Nisar ?

Even if its 2000 Vs 5000, it depends how you deploy them.
Nowadays, every infantry Division on the eastern front has ATLEAST one whole armored or mechanised brigade.
Would want to hear heroics of Armor and mechanised crews in WOT (2002 till now) from you. Not the AZ story please but stuff that isnt discussed here before.

How well was M113 deployed and utilised in WOT.

Also, when are you planning to write for Hilal Mag.

Unfortunately none. What is more depressing is that even a man like him after proving himself in the battle where it mattered more than ACRs and other courses he made to brigadier rank with great difficulty.:hitwall:
Similarly the GOC of 6th armd div( also nisar's) was even promoted to lt gen!! He also retired as a Maj Gen which was his rank in 65! While men like Yahya Khan got promotion for nothing. There are many similar instances in the army. Alas...

Col Sahibzad Gul, 6 Lancers, Khem Karan

Then Maj Shah Rafi Alam
Then Col Wajahat, commanding all armor elements of 6 armored division at Chawinda
Maj Z U Abbasi

Commander 2 Armored Brigade in 1971, at Chamb

.... And then some others as well.

I thought he was talking about those who led their regts/formations with tactical brilliance and not just boldness and bravery.
However, in the words of Major General Agha Humayaun Khan" It is ironic that Third World countries study Napoleon and Slim when they have great military commanders like Eftikhar, Akhtar and Abrar"

I Can't remember his name.
Col Sahibzad Gul, 6 Lancers, Khem
The only notable person in the 1st armd div's and 11th inf div's debacle.

6th armd div had a greater ratio of brilliant commanders as compared to the 1st.
I suppose Tariq khan and Yaqub Khan could also be added in the list had they been given a chance in a full blown conflict.
These officers did. Not many know about them.
The majors you mentioned are well known mostly due to their boldness.
