VietDefense published some recently broadcasted footage of the Vietnamese Mobile Task Force Regiment under Guard Police High Command. The MP5s used by the men seen in action are either the Turkish-manufactured models purchased from the American Company Zenith Firearms or those manufactured by Pakistan Ordnance Factories and directly bought from Pakistan.

The MP5 (which stands for Maschinenpistole 5 in German) is a 9x19mm Parabellum submachine gun, developed in the 1960s by a team of engineers from the German small arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) of Oberndorf am Neckar. There are over 100 variants of the MP5, including some semi-automatic versions. The MP5 is one of the most widely used submachine guns in the world, having been adopted by 40 nations and numerous military, law enforcement, intelligence, and security organizations. It was (and sometimes remains) widely used by SWAT teams in North America, but has largely been supplanted by M16 variants in the 21st century. In 1999, Heckler & Koch developed the Heckler & Koch UMP, the MP5's successor; both are available as of 2020.
The MP5 is manufactured under license in several nations including Greece (formerly at EBO – Hellenic Arms Industry, currently at ΕΑΣ – Hellenic Defense Systems), Iran (Defense Industries Organization), Mexico (SEDENA), Pakistan (Pakistan Ordnance Factories), Saudi Arabia, Sudan (Military Industry Corporation), Turkey (MKEK), and the United Kingdom (initially at Royal Ordnance, later diverted to Heckler & Koch Great Britain).
Happy new year 2020 and our best wishes for friends readers customers and family 925 001

Defense budget

Farrukh Saleem


Myth number 1: The defense budget eats up the lion’s share of our total budgetary expenses. Not true. In Budget 2020-21, ‘Defense Affairs and Services’ has been allocated Rs1,289 billion out of total budgetary expenses of Rs7,295 billion. What this means is that defense comprises 17.67 percent of the total expenses and 82.33 percent of all government expenses are non-defense related.

Myth number 2: Of the total defense budget, Pakistan Army takes away the lion’s share. Not true. Pakistan Army gets Rs613 billion (47.6%), PAF Rs274 billion (21%), Pak Navy Rs140 billion (11%) and Inter-Services Rs262 billion (20%).

Myth number 3: Our defense budget has been rising at a high rate. Not true. In the 70s, the allocation for defense amounted to 6.50 percent of GDP. In the financial year 2001-02, twenty years ago, the allocation for defense amounted to 4.6 percent of GDP. Budget 2020-21 has allocated Rs1,289 billion which is 2.86 percent of GDP. In the 60s, Pak Army’s budget as a percentage of total expenditures hovered around 30 percent. In Budget 2020-21, Pak Army’s budget as a percentage of total expenditures has come down to 8 percent.

Myth number 4: Pakistan has a large military. Not true. There are at least 64 countries in the world who have more military personnel on a per capita basis than does Pakistan. They are: Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Switzerland, Italy, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Russia, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Libya, Kuwait, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Israel, Estonia, Vietnam, Slovenia, Botswana, Mongolia, Yemen, Kazakhstan, Cuba, Mauritania, Croatia, Chile, Somalia, Albania, Sao tome and Principe, Namibia, Angola, Cambodia, Uruguay, Bolivia, Romania, Morocco, Lithuania, Portugal, Burma, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Burundi, Bulgaria, Columbia, Serbia and Montenegro, Cyprus, Greece, Armenia, Djibouti, Maldives, Oman, Belarus, Jordan, Syria, Laos, Bahrain, Brunei, Eretria and North Korea.

Myth number 5: Pakistan’s military expenditures are the highest in the world on a per capita basis. Not true. Pakistan’s military expenditures on a par capita basis are actually one of the lowest on the face of the plant. Israel spends $2,000 on a per capita basis and Pakistan spends $22 per capita.

Myth number 6: The military’s commercial undertakings are a burden on our economy. Not true. Fauji Fertilizer is one of the highest taxpayers in Pakistan. In 2019, Fauji Fertilizer paid a wholesome Rs42 billion in taxes and duties. Fauji Cement deposits around Rs10 billion a year in the treasury on account of income taxes, excise duty and sales tax.

Fact: Pakistan spends 2.86 percent of her GDP on defense. The global average is 2.18 percent. Yes, we do spend a higher percent of our GDP on defense than the global average. Countries that spend even a higher percentage of their GDP on defense than does Pakistan include Saudi Arabia (8%), Israel (5.3%), Russia (3.9%) and US (3.4%),

Fact: Pakistan’s armed forces are the 6th largest in the world but our expenses on a per soldier basis are the lowest. The US spends $392,000 per soldier, Saudi Arabia $371,000, India $42,000, Iran $23,000 and Pakistan $12,500 per soldier.

Army Successfully Tests Pakistan-Made Automatic Grenade Launcher
Posted 20 hours ago by Haroon Hayder
Pakistan Army has successfully tested an Automatic Grenade Launcher named PAK-40, further consolidating the country’s defensive capabilities.

What makes the latest addition unique is the fact that it is indigenously developed at Pakistan Ordinance Factory (POF).


PAK-40 weighs around 41 Kgs and has a range of 2,200 meters. The launcher fires 40mm grenades with a radius of 10 meters and is capable of firing multiple types of grenades.
The automatic launcher can operate in temperatures ranging from 55C to -24C, meaning it can perform effectively in the arduous terrain of the Cholistan desert and the unforgiving Siachen glacier.
ALSO READThe launcher can be equipped with night vision and thermal sights as well, making it a perfect weapon to use in military operations at night and adverse weather conditions.
Moreover, PAK-40 can be easily mounted on vehicles or helicopters and requires a small team to operate it.​
