    Pakistan F-16 Discussions 2

These days, reportedly, US is looking for air bases close to Afghanistan to launch drone missions if need be. Now if we do agree to it, than the questions...

    Buddy I am all in favor of getting high tech from US as it brings best of what is out there and the best training too. People here will not agree with me but that is the God's honest truth. But I don't see it happening. Case in point is AH-1Z, engine export certification of Atak, transfer of...

    Yasser (If that is your name) the game is no longer this simple. If this was the on the table, GoP would have played along easily. But to me, it seems, things are not so much in black and white anymore. Our neighbors in the east know how to bargain and if they are out destroy Pakistani inroads...

    From The Vault

    Sir I humbly submit that this is not a pic of 1998. PAF was not using this color scheme on C-130's at that time. The low visibility color scheme came in to vogue with re-ferb C-130's received after 2001 from US. Furthermore, these F-16's seem to belong to Arrows who were, If I remember it...

Otherwise engine and systems on board the FADEC-controlled Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6C turboshaft engine on AW 139 is also, to some extent, sensitive...
