One interesting thing I noted is that the new chinese VT1A1 comes with a portable vertical lift helidrone system assigned to each tank. We could use smaller drones within 10 miles radius for ISR and layer it with our artillery/mortar units as you stated. It would also provide precise positions of talirat posts and armoured vehicles.
Its very disapointing to see the pak army doesnt seem to have its head around a proper ORBAT at the afghan border. Decades of rot, corruption, following out dated british traditions (which the british dont even follow anymore) have come home to roost. The neptasism and lack of proper training at PMA is a dire sign that we need reform.
Take a single look at our military parade and many questions come up. Whats with the weird clothing during peacetime? Whats with the weird sticks that every army chief seems to carry? And whats with the knee high march which serves no purpose and can cause major knee damage for our troops? Our enemies must be laughing at us. Other militaries have marches where aggressieness is shown to sow the seeds if fear in the enemyy. Other military geneeals carry around a firearm even during peacetime (israel/taliban) yet here we are in a constant state of conflict and how does our COAS lead? A yellow bamboo stick
All the officers who have studied at pma and adopted such crappy traditions need to be sacked. We need a complete rebuilding of our military starting from the top down. Every single general is responsible for this mess. In other countries soilders join the military as a sacrafice to their country… in pak soilders join for land plots and income
