      Hi
      paf use F 5 aircraft only in 1971

      Although these F-5 did not play astretegic role in the conflict, they came to Pakistan as a jesture from Jordanian Air Force for it's close ties with PAF.

      Pakistan as a Jesture from JAF for it's close ties with PAF. But means to say F-5 not placed in PAF Inventory in past also in present, but PAF Pilots have Honour to fly it against Israel.

      This is awesome, I never knew the PAF had F-5's.

      They were borrowed from the Iranians in 71. kitted in PAK insignia, as were the Sabs and Starfighters from the US. There were some instances that the US insignia i.e. the 'Star' was still visible. My uncle flew a Starfighter in the war with US ensignia against the Indians. Must have confused them a bit.

      As we have agreement with UAE, Saudi to use their aircraft against India. Imagine that. Should scare the bee jessus out of them.
