    I think we need specialized fighters or interceptors. Keeping in view F-18’s multipurpose roles, I always thought of it as a plane which is jack of all trade and master of non.

    This and plus its not available;)

    Yes we should get one of these.Better if we order some squadrons of raptors,and while we are at it lets invest a couple billion$ in the JSF program.So if you will be kind enough to give me your Swiss Bank account number?

    It is unlikely Americans will sell F-18 to Pakistan.

    These are Australian Super Hornets. They replaced the aging F-111s. They were bought as a stop gap measure until the F-35s arrive

    Why to go for US planes while they have an option to go for much economic and much deadly chinese fighter planes?

    It's not even a dream or a desire.But for the sake of discussion.The aviation wing will be supported by PAF and not PN instead.And those guys won't be adding any other American platform for obvious reasons.
    The RAAF is already using the F-18s ,the new version will have it's own advantages.

    Plus we also have our own version of hornet coming for rescue.

    it will be better for PAK, if thinks about upgrading their F16 to V std ( with AESA ) than acquiring F18

    "Made in America" -- Enough reason not to buy. A discourse has been adopted via JF-17 and FC-20 along with Block-52 and MLUed Falcons ... I think we must stick to that. Too much experimentation is not in national interest.

    growlers are specialized f18 which will replace prowler. they are less in number. and they are force multipliers.
