    ‘Made in Pakistan’ weapons being sold to 40 countries


    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is manufacturing and selling weapons to over 40 countries, bringing in $20 million annually, the chairman of the Pakistan Ordinance Factories said Thursday.

    “POF was [previously] fulfilling the requirements of [Pakistan] army only but now security needs of other civil forces and law-enforcement agencies are also being met,” Chairman Lt. Gen. Muhammad Ahsan Mehmood told media at Pakistan Ordinance Factories in Wah.

    Mehmood said Pakistan is also producing new sniper rifles to meet the demands of military and law enforcement agencies, and that new developments and products were expected to be unveiled at the 2014 IDEAS exhibition in Karachi.

    He said that modern weapons produced by POF have made it possible to target terrorists taking refuge in caves and buildings. The POF is also manufacturing mortar bombs, small arms, artillery ammunition, tank- and anti tank ammunition and other defence weaponry, he added.

    Pakistan is the world’s third largest weapons importer, trailing behind neighbouring India and China, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).

    The country’s arms imports increased by 119 per cent between the 2004–2008 and 2009–13, with China providing 54pc and the USA 27pc of Pakistan’s imports.

    But at a guided tour of the tank-rebuilding factory at the Heavy Industries Taxila, Brigadier Sanaullah told journalists that Pakistan is planning to rid itself of foreign dependence in the defence industry.

    Brig. Sanaullah said that at the end of 2015 the new Al-Khalid-1 tank was expected to be rolled out — a much superior tank compared to Al-Khalid, the main battle tank produced by the HIT.

    How come a country that can't even produce a decent basic trainer is dreaming of co-developping a stealth fighter? :lol:

    The mirror which has a thick coating of green paint (left over paint from painting the weapons green) on the reflecting surface? That will not help dear.

    Does it matter? Nothing helps a blinded person with a delusional mind. He will only picture what he has in his petty mind.

    If you're done playing 'mirror mirror on the wall', care to say something on topic?

    With all respect Neo saheb,India has produced a wide array of trainers in house.
    1.HT-2
    2.HPT-32 "Deepak"
    3.HJT-36 "Kiran"

    All three have been the back bone of Indian Air Force and Naval aviation,with Kirans being still in service. Other than the said aircrafts,several other aircrafts and parts are also produced in the country,which gives us every eligibility for co developing 5th Generation aircrafts.

    Well you started it.

    and then accuse me of.

    Boy, you got serious issues.

    Also, you said

    but, it was you who brought mirror

    I am not dumb enough to show a blind person mirror. Well in short I am not Pakistani enough to do it.

    ================

    PS. What do you expect me to speak on topic?

    Except that we make 4.5 times more from exporting defence equipment each year.

    Staying on topic would be a great change. All I see from you is worthless tit for tat cheap shots.
    It's the usual butt hurt trolls from post #2 and on who started derailing the thread and you are only adding fuel as usual.

    This wise words should have dawned upon you from post #4 isn't it?

    Well on-topic,

    I have made a statement which you have let pass.

    Secondly, is Australia included in the 40 countries? As you export 'defence' socks to them?

    Total weapons exports is average $110 million per year including spares for exported Super Mushaks and K-8 Korakorum.

    We have also supplied US Border patrol with surveilliance drones.
