    Good post sir,
    The count in above stats of F-7P a/c is 139. (24+75+40)

    AFAIK on June20, 1988 F-7P was inducted in PAF. By 1990, 80 F-7s ( 20 from Hand Shake-I,60 from Hand Shake-II) were inducted. From 1991-92 15 FT-7P were acquired from China under Handshake-III, 40 F-7P later joined in 1993 under Handshake-IV....which makes it 80+15+40=135.

    Though the list is very much accurate,it would have been more detailed if count of various a/c engines received by PAC through time was listed.

    The F-5s Transferred from Saudia and later returned to the source seem to be missing from the list.

    [​IMG]

    During the 1971 War, different types of fighters from some friendly countries were temporarily transferred to the PAF. Of these groups, a formation of three F-5As with PAF markings are shown here entering the Pakistani territory. The pilots who ferried the F-5s were:-

    Squadron Leader: Tahir Kheli
    Squadron Leader: Zaigham Aizad
    Flight Lieutenant: Bilal Khan

    The news also seemed circumstantial to me until I had the privilege to see a photograph in the Air Directorate's office.

    Sir,from these details it seems that PAF has inducted 23 C-130s since 1962.

    Zia's C-130 crashed on Aug 17, 1988. Two C-130Bs serial no. 23491 & 24143 collided at Chaklala base tarmac on Sep 10, 1998.
    There is one burnt C-130 in Chaklala, if its not one of these two C-130s then total count becomes 23-4=19.

    Currently PAF has 16 C-130s. If all above figures are correct, then from this hypothesis one can conclude that atleast three of C-130s have been returned to Iran...is their any details of such re-transfer of equipment?
