If this plane is of critical importance as part of PAF strategy couldn’t PAF in tandem with China/Turkey designed and fielded a delta wing fighter to replace the aging mirage with better tech and stealth features etc?
Let us wait for final outcomes due to Project AZM efforts.

May be an UAV capable of flying at very high altitude carrying single a SOW or long range cruise missile.

5th cum 6th generation air warfare will be interesting to watch.

UAVs operated by their own AIs, smaller drone copters, aerial refueling using drone refuelers, laser weapons, miniaturized EMP generators as warheads embedded in missiles and many many more. Sky is the limit.

Only problem I don’t see as much progress from Pakistan Military Industrial Complex on those various weapon systems. Look at Turkey last 1-2 decades how it’s fielded new weapons UAVs, Missiles, SOMs etc. Our industry isn’t even Cold War standard with some basic manufacturing.

There is progress but not visible.

Correct... it goes back to discussion, there was a major missed opportunity to go down CHeetah path. A completely bird would have taken shape not to mention if F1's had been taken on as well.
