If PAF had the finances, what is the ideal number of squadrons to have - thinking wrt to the current scenario, where inevitably IAF will gain air supremacy due to sheer numbers in an all-out war situation?

That will always be the case, money or no money. btw PAF budget is 26 sqdns up from a previous of 22. IAF is in the 45 to 48 sqdns range.

Besides PAF's interest in J-20, will PAF going to evaluate the Russian SU-57 for a possible acquisition after 2025?

did we ever used a single russian fighter jet in our history sir ?
Do we need history to buy a new platform for our armed forces? Mi-35s were never used by PAA (Mi-25 Hinds) in history. Now, you might say we captured one from the Afghan Air Force. Also, you might say we already operate Mi-17 which is just a transport.

Sir, open your consciousness :pakistan:

PAC can also consider a similar deal with Embraer like the one they did with Saab Safari in the 1980s.

PAC can license produce Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano for PAF and other airforces of Asia, Africa, & also for Europe.

Hi,

A very interesting read for members here.

Recently in a discussion on a chinese def forum---a reputed poster negated this incidence from another poster---who had commented that an aircraft going supersonic can hit its own bullets that it fired.

The reputed member threatened to ban the person who made those comments.

The discussion started with launching of bvr missiles from a supersonic speed---and that reputed member just just using his silly reasoning to negate its effects on the missile.

Anyway----why is it prefered to launch a BVR missile from a plane flying supersonic---well---the missile is already flying supersonic with the aircraft---so it does not have to break the supersonic barrier on its own power---& that means what---!!!!

Doubters----check out Millenium 7 on this issue.

From Popular Mechanics
In 1956, the Grumman aircraft corporation was testing its new fighter, the F-11 Tiger, off the coast of New York state.
The pilot fired a long burst from its guns and moments later suffered mysterious, catastrophic damage that caved in the windshield and mortally wounded the engine.
What happened? The pilot had shot himself down.

The F-11 Tiger, like all Grumman aircraft, was named after a cat. Fast and nimble, the F-11 was only the second supersonic fighter in the Navy's inventory, capable of 843 miles per hour (Mach 1.1). It was actually Grumman's first supersonic fighter, and the company's inexperience with the consequences of supersonic flight, as well as the fighter's amazing speed, would be one test Tiger's undoing.

On September 21, 1956, as DataGenetics explains, a Grumman test pilot flying a Tiger off the coast of Long Island dropped his nose 20 degrees and pointed it at an empty spot of ocean. He fired a brief, four second burst from his four Colt Mk.12 20-millimeter cannons, entered a steeper descent, and hit the afterburners.
A minute later, his windshield suddenly caved in and his engine started making funny noises, eventually conking out as the pilot attempted to return to Grumman's Long Island airfield. CONTD click on the link below
