60 aircrafts are a very significant number. Such numbers are seen in the Red flag or other major multinational excersises.

PAF needs to order 60 J10CE minimum. What good are all these interoperability excersises if we dont operate any of the modern PLAAF jets today? There is a significant windown of opportunity that pakistan-China can exploit via Gangedesh within the next few years.

60 is alot of aircraft for an exercise - but when there are only 2 air arms involved - that is a hell of a lot of aircraft. Unusal. Interoperatability between PAF and PLAAF is the key here. Would be coold if some J20s and J16Ds came to the party aswell - would be a welcome wake up call for PAF interms of the advantages of both stealth aircraft - and fighter jet based EW aircraft.

Happy hunting PAF / PLAAF !!!!

Maybe the J-16 will participate?
Hopefully the J-16D and some J-20s are on the opposition/aggressor side. That would be very interesting. Test the allied pilots ability to operate in an intense EW environment. If Pakistan had the Havasoj, it could have brought that into the mix, maybe in a few years.
