I am not in tank export business, but there are a lot of tanks which draw origin from T-72 for sale. I suppose the competition is tough, and sales are hard to win.

Going to be tough generating sales for Pakistan. 
1)  China has a much better reputation for quality than Pakistan.
2)  China is less corrupt, which makes their products cheaper because fewer people need to be bribed and lowers the final price. that is negotiated.  That's why the Sri Lanka deal is stuck in negotiations, why pay more for Pakistani when you can have better Chinese for less?

Combat  provence  is  imported  .
During the  Lebanon  war T-72 has poor  performence againts  Merkava's  and TOW's.
Tank reliability and  survivabilty is  imported  than electronics.
 My personely favorite is Lecrec  , as ground troops  of France againts  the  the other  
Export  to  neighboring  countries  is not  a criteria  for  tank.

"The Pride Of Pakistan Gets No Respect"   Nothing in Pakistan deserves respect.

Maybe its the 5 gears it has, 1 forward and 4 in reverse that buyers shy from, or the bulls-eye the Paks call camo.
