So, Shaheen's objectives are entirely different! If I were to quote one example from the last Shaheen Ex... it'd be this..So no Shaheen X exercise for 2022. I guess J-10C sales promotion to PAF completed during Shaheen IX and X is not needed.
Setting: Capability Brief.
PLAAF J-16 pilot, while discussing 'adversary platforms', stops at Su-30MKI - looks at the Pakistani audience, and goes; "Here is our common enemy, I say we **** them up". Followed with laughs & loud claps.
So, you can well understand what both sides have in mind.
