Pakistan Army Order of Battle - Divisions

There are a total of 25 divisions in the Pakistan Army. This includes 19 Infantry divisions, 2 Mechanized Divisions, 2 Armored Divisions and 2 Artillery Division. Each division is commanded by a Major General, and usually holds three Brigades. These include infantry, artillery, engineer and communications units in addition to logistics (supply and service) support to sustain independent action. The most signficant of the ground force combat formations is the infantry division. Such a division would primarily hold three infantry brigades. Except for the Divisions operating in the mountains, all the Divisions have at least one armored unit, while some have more.

A Brigade is under the command of a Brigadier or sometimes a Colonel and comprises three or more Battalions of different units. An independent brigade would primarily consist of an artillery unit, an infantry unit, an armour unit and logistics to support its actions. Such a brigade is not part of any division and is under direct command of a Corps.

Each battalion is commanded by a Lieutenant Colonel and has roughly 600 to 900 soldiers under his command. This number varies depending on the functionality of the battalion. A battalion comprises either three batteries (in case of artillery and air defence regiments - generally named Papa, Quebec, Romeo, and Sierra) or four companies (in case of infantry regiments - generally named Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, and Delta - and other arms excluding armored units that are organized into squadrons) each under the command of a major and comprising of individual subunits called sections (which are further divisible into platoons and squads).
