Pakistan Army Order of Battle - Discrepancies

The Pakistan Army does not make its Order of Battle public. As of mid-2009 there were three recently published ORBATs, including two published a few weeks apart on Wikipedia. All of these contain notable discrepancies with ORBAT assessments circa 2002, and there are evident discrepancies even between the two Wikipedia assessments.

16 Infantry Division, part of V Corps at Panno Aquil as of 2009, was originally was part of XII corps, moving to Panno Aquil Cantonment in 1987.

Janes in 2008 places the 14 Infantry Division at Okara under II Corps, while Wiki in 2009 places the 14 Infantry Division at Okara under XXXI Corps. Janes in 2008 did not attest a 25 Mechanized Infantry Division, while Wiki in 2009 places the 25 Mechanized Infantry Division at Malir under V Corps. Janes in 2008 did not attest a 2 Artillery Division, while Wiki in 2009 places the 2 Artillery Division at Gujranwala under XXX Corps. Janes in 2008 placed the 34 Infantry Division at Bahawalpur and the 35 Infantry Division at Pano Aqil, both under XXXI Corps, while while Wiki in 2009 does not mention the 34 Infantry Division and the 35 Infantry Division is placed at Bahawalpur.

Earlier reports on I Corps had 6th Armored Division at Mangla, and placed 35 Mechanized Infantry Division at Gujranwala rather than 37 Mechanized Infantry Division. Earlier reports on II Corps had 2nd Artillery Division and 14th Infantry Division at unidentified locations under II Corps. Earlier reports on XXXI Corps had 33rd Infantry Division at Bhawalpur and 37th Infantry Division Sukkur, rather than 34 Infantry Division at Bahawalpur and 35 Infantry Division at Pano Aqil reported in 2008, or the 2009 report of both 34 Infantry Division and 35 Infantry Division at Bahawalpur, with 14 Infantry Division at Okara also reporting to XXXI Corps. Earlier reports on V Corps had 16th Infantry Division at Rahim Yar Khan rather than Hyderabad, and did not include 25 Mechanized Infantry Division. Earlier reports on V Corps had 12th Infantry Division at Muzzafarabad [rather than Murree], 19th Infantry Division at Rawalkot [rather than Jhelum], and 23rd Infantry Division at Mangla [rather than Gujrat]. Earlier reports on V Corps had 9th Infantry Division at Rawalkot or Mardan, rather than Kohat. Earlier reports on XII Corps had 16th Infantry Division at an un-identified location, and did not include 41 Infantry Division.
