    New fighter for PAF Doctrine?

    I think there were domestic politics involved too and some of these countries might not want to sell to Pakistan either. I would also say, era of buying Block 15s (MLUed) should be behind us. We need to put our money where our mouth is and if national security is in such dire straits (which I...

    Pakistan Army's T-129 ATAK Helicopter Deal | Updates & Discussions.

    I beg to differ Bilal. First, Turks have a requirement for a heavy gunship to replace their AH-1Ws. The T-129s replace their AH-1F/S Cobras only. Also, the Bell 412s are actually not that old and we have bought some newer Hips as well over the years. The Pumas however do need to go.

    JF-17 Block-3 -- Updates, News & Discussion

    PAF has in more dire times inducted multiple platforms at the same time, such as the A-5 and F-16. Same in case of Mirages and F-6s after 1965 war. But we are not in those dire times and infact with the JF-17 production, more self-sufficient then ever in our history. J-10 would be a terrible...

    New fighter for PAF Doctrine?

    Easy copout from you. Regardless if there is any J-10 deal or not, you are conveniently skipping over the other questions.

    New fighter for PAF Doctrine?

    2. Why is that? And what evidence do ppl have that are proclaiming this as truth? So on one hand Pakistan can buy ANYTHING from China, just ask for it. On the other, you can't buy a missile for a joint program unless forced to spend billions on a new platform? I call bullshit on this claim. 3...

    Hard to say if they meant exporting the guns or the helicopter by that tweet

    UAE and France sign deal for 80 Rafale fighter jets

    Let's see where Qatari Mirages end up first. India has been buying attrition replacements from France as well airframes for spare parts. They have also slowed down the upgrade program for now but these UAE ones could very likely end up there too or in Egypt.

    New fighter for PAF Doctrine?

    Doesn't make sense at all. What's stopping us from increasing JF-17 production? It's not a lack a capacity but money. Why do you think ordering more J-10s will somehow bypass that bottleneck, not to mention each will not only cost more, include all the infrastructure for parts/training it will...

    JF-17 Thunder Multirole Fighter [Thread 7]

    Exactly, there is none realistically. PAF has not choice but to wait for the Russians. If Pakistan had the money to spend and push for upgrades sooner, it would have to pay for that out of its pocket. I am thinking Klimov is funding the development from its own funds in hope it will find a...

    JF-17 Thunder Multirole Fighter [Thread 7]

    Honestly, what else would PAF say? That they wish they had a better, more powerful engine, without getting egg on their faces? I read their statements as the current engine meets the bare requirements for the job. I am sure once the Russians have their engine through development and testing, PAF...

    Things will get more interesting now that India has removed Leonardo from it's blacklist. They will be doing their utmost to play spoilers. Was hoping they would keep their stupid policies bit longer
