This would be amazing, just for you guys info, i'm a serving officer in the Pakistan Army (Captain) , I'd love to see Pakistani faction in game.
I wouldn't mind helping you guys correct some information
While I don't think we're likely to see a Pakistani faction or indeed any further factions for Wargame: Red Dragon we all live in eternal hope. I don't have a lot of time to spend on Pakistan these days but I'd be very happy for any information you dig up about the Pakistani armed forces in the 80s and early 90s. I'd especially like to have suggestions for infantry units and names, it's often the most difficult thing to do for a nation proposal in my opinion because the names of military units have a cultural connection that you need to be immersed in the culture to understand.
Well to start it off, its a conventional professional army having all Arms.
1. Punjab Regiment
2. Baluch Regiment
3. Frontier Force Regiment
4. Sind Regiment
5. Azad Kashmir Regt
