I think artillery is considered supporting arms vs fighting or primary like infantry and armor. It it’s folks like tikka khan made it to the top [emoji6]

Other supporting arms like engineers or supply etc no one made it to the [emoji772]

It’s just number game till one star and then it’s becomes a filtration process
Tikka and Musharaf are from Artillery...
Gen Musa is originally from Hazara Pioneers....
General Zia uddin, who was made COAS in place of Gen Musharaf is from Engineers....

What Is Army ??
Army is:-
When a cold and shivering jawan gets
you a cup of hot tea on a patrol break
at 13,000 feet.
When your sixth sense tells you there is something wrong with a guy at 50
meters.
When you meet with an accident and
the first thing you check is the
serviceability of your legs.
When you speak the language of your boys.
When you sit from dusk to dawn in an
ambush on Eid Day, you know
army is giving you the red rose.
When you are a master at pump stove,
lanterns, solar lights, bukharis and travelling in trains without
reservations.
When you know more about cramps
and cold injuries than your average
doctor.
When your pain submits to your will.
When you find it funny when your
relative says he’s going on a holiday to a hill station.
When your profession is a matter of
discussion during marriage proposals.
When you know the real meaning of
camouflage, in field, in parties, in unit
routine and in your own house.
When you can live, anywhere, with
anybody, on anything that nature can
offer.
When you know this LMG will be re-
sited by everybody up the ladder, till it
comes back to where you had sited it initially.
When somebody asks, “Do you play
Golf?” and you look at the brass on
your shoulder and say “Not yet!”
When you are the biggest consumer of
foot powder, DMP oil, water sterilization kit, ORS packets and Meals ready to Eat in the Army.
When you gave it all that you have got,
and some more.
When you are the only one to get
trained in bayonet fighting. And expect it to happen.
When your girlfriend thinks you are
Rambo, Commando, Gladiator and
Braveheart, all rolled into one. Your
Commanding Officer, by the way,
thinks you are none.
When you get lost in a multiplex with
signboards but are at ease in a jungle
with a compass.
When you can die for, what you have lived for.
That's Pakistan Army. People Call It Fear. We Call It Life
