Pakistani Military

Pakistani Military
Pakistan's military is regard as one of the best in the world. It consists of the Pakistani Army, Pakistani Airforce, and the Pakistani Navy. Before Pakistan's independence in 1947, most officers in the newly formed Pakistan Armed Forces served in the British Colonial Army established in south asia and fought in both the World Wars and the numerous Anglo-Afghan Wars. Several experienced commanders who fought in the British military in World War II joined the military of Pakistan giving it professionalism, experience and leadership. After independence, the military was supposed to have been divided between India and Pakistan with a ratio of 64% going to India and 36% for Pakistan; however, it is estimated that india refused to divide its share of equipment and some analyst suggest that Pakistan inherited a mere 15% of its allocated share. After independence the Pakistani Armed Forces have fought 3 wars against india, one against the soviet union [to end soviet occupation of afghanistan], and is currently the only country that is actually winning the ongoing War On Terror. Pakistan is also the single largest contributor of UN peacekeeping forces, with more than 11,000 Pakistani military personnel serving in UN peacekeeping operations worldwide.
