RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that fast-changing dynamics of warfare demand the highest degree of professionalism and rigorous training with due focus on harnessing sophisticated technologies.
Interacting with officers and troops at the commissioning of Chinese origin VT-4 Tank into Strike Formation in Gujranwala on Tuesday, COAS said continuous up-gradation of conventional capabilities is imperative for maintaining a qualitative edge over the adversary and deter aggression.
“VT-4 Tank is another symbol of Pakistan – China strategic cooperation and defence collaboration, and its induction will boost strike capabilities of our formations,” an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release quoted COAS as saying.
He emphasised that the fast-changing dynamics of warfare demand the highest degree of professionalism and rigorous training with due focus on harnessing sophisticated technologies.
The COAS witnessed a demonstration of the VT-4 Tank, which was a robust warfighting machine. Based on its advanced armour protection, high manoeuvrability and exceptional firepower, VT-4 can be compared with any modern main battle tank of the world.
Equipped with an auto transmission system and deep water fording operation capability, it was considered a potent weapon of strike formations. The COAS also visited the Dynamic Integrated Training Simulator of VT-4.
