    its not just about Ukraine I see it as model for our Al-Haider program which mean even if we chose VT-4 or T-90MS we would get some TOT related to tank engines, BTW following are the posts of @Arsalan related to T-90

    All this talk of shelfing the AK program is nothing but crap.
    For the last few year hmc has been producing them at full tilt ie their highest production rate since inception.
    At the same time HMC is being retooled to double its production capacity

    The report is both right n wrong.
    HIT did hand over a regiment strength of AK to the army but due to a problem the Chinese sights the army refused to accept them.
    It took 6 months for the whole prob. To be sorted out as initially the supplier blamed the HIT for faulty installation, while HIT through out maintained that the problem was with the sights.
    After thorough tests. It was established that the sights were indeed faulty and thus replaced.
    And only than did the army except the shipment which by the time had doubled in no.

    It looks like the PA bought VT4s off-the-shelf from China.

    Meanwhile, HIT is manufacturing AK1s and developing the AK2. The AK2 may see collaboration from Ukraine and/or Turkey, but at this point, I think China's fair game too (basically bring some VT4 tech to the AK2).
