Fighting & Supporting Arms
 
  Armoured Corps
This perilous journey from Ahmednagar to Nowshera commenced with the announcement of independence of Pakistan as made by Quaid-i­Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah. On the same day, the Pakistan Armoured Corps was born.
 
  Artillery
Before reaching the enviable stage of self-propelled guns, automated fire control system, target acquisition radars, meteorological radars, variety of munitions including nuclear warheads, guided missiles, Artillery has come a long way.
 
  Army Air Defence
Air defence is basic to survival in modern war. Air threat spectrum today and in any future war demands a continuous balancing of threat response. Threat response today clearly demands a sound development of a warning system designed to detect, track, acquire targets, moving at speed from 0 – 1800 meters per second both during day and night.
 
  Engineers
Engineers, Sappers or artisans have in one form or the other remained part of an army ever since the birth of a fighting force. Evidence of the work of the earliest military engineers can be found in many parts of the world; Hill Forts of Europe in Iron Age, Fortifications protecting City of Zimbabwe of lost civilization and not the least, the Great Wall of China built in 3 BC.
 
  Army Aviation Corps 
 In 1947, at the time of independence, Pakistan inherited four fabric covered Auster airplanes. These were part of an “Air Observation Post Squadron”, which was deployed in Lahore in support of Punjab Boundary Commission. These four Auster aircrafts were grouped in Chaklala as 1st Air Observation Post flight.
 
  Infantry
Infantry are soldiers who fight primarily on foot with small arms in organized military units. Infantry forms the backbone of all armies. Mainly because of its suppleness and that it can be used in more different roles than the other arms.
