    27 Feb 19: PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace: DG ISPR

    The honor code drilled into every cadet is, “I will not lie, cheat or steal and will not permit anyone among us who does so “. In a way he has not shown integrity and honor by allowing himself to be part of the lie. Honorable conduct in an ideal world would have had him resign rather than be a...

    Pakistan F-16 Discussions 2

    The picture is taken above the wing which indicates it is a mid-wing aircraft hence KC-135. C-17 is a high wing aircraft with no windows above the wing. The two aircraft have different power plants and the easy way to tell the difference externally is that C-17 engine nacelle (cowling/cover)...

    Research Papers: Pakistani Aerospace Technologies

    Reading some of the posts, just some thoughts. Part of the rationale given in the past about same treatment of civilians and cadets at CAE was that the grading system was based on bell curve. If civilians were day scholars and not subjected to the same “extra-curricular activities “ then...

    Fighter Jet Activity Over Islamabad !

    Convenience probably, just speculating. Top brass needs to maintain flying status. Most are not converted to JF-17 at Kamra the nearest base. FT-7 keeps currency and maintains flying status. Probably one of ancillary benefits of the detachment.

    New fighter for PAF Doctrine?
