    Yea all F-16s upgraded to V standard would counter 36 rafale. But united states is not that reliable... We should come up with something dependable in war time. something like JF-17 did for Su 30 MKI and Mig 29s we need a new platform that is dependable.

    Americans can manipulate us and f-16V or L in time of need. We should think about a counter platform from China or something indegenous ... Rafale will be here in 2022... Fastest way is upgrade of all f-16s to V standard... 3 years to prepare for it. Well PAF has been devising a plan since 2016 ever simce rafale was announced. But i don't like that option

    Virtually no country in the world formally receives state guests at the airport anymore. Official ceremonies are usually held at the Presidential palace or a similar place. Pakistan is maybe one of few countries that still has airport welcome ceremonies. Also in case of Imran he used a commercial jet into Dulles. If he had used a special plane, he would have landed at Andrews airbase where some minimal ceremonies can take place. People criticizing Imran for no protocol are very ill informed and have a very Pakistani and outdated view of protocal for state visits.

    Sir only technology so far manipulated is Russian one whether it was during Arab/Israel war or currently SAMs in Syria. We have fought past battles with US tech and can use it successfully in future. However in order to counter any threat from Nato we should deploy JF17s along with Afghan border along with Chinese SAM/Radars.

    F16V upgrade if applied on F16s of two to three squadrons shall suffice the need to counter Rafael in any aspect.

    From Wikipedia: Today, a 21-gun salute is rendered on the arrival and departure of the President of the United States; it is fired in concordance with four ruffles and flourishes, which are immediately followed by "Hail to the Chief"—the actual gun salute begins with the first ruffle and flourish, and 'run long' (i.e. the salute concludes after "Hail to the Chief" has ended). A 21-gun salute is also rendered to former U.S. Presidents, foreign Heads of State (or members of a reigning royal family), as well as to Presidents-elect. In such a ceremony, the national anthem of the visiting dignitary's country is played, following the salute.

    So, is Qamar Bajwa the head of the state of Pakistan?

    Reasons for this bonhomie are simple:
    • A known enemy is better than an unknown friend (Pak vs India)
    • An empty house is better than a bad tenant (Afganistan)
    • If you want to get a job done find a busy person (Pindi Boys)
    • Be the first in the queue when food is served, but skittle to the last slot when the fight starts (India’s actions vis-a-vis supporting the USA regarding the Afgan quagmire, China containment etc.)

    F16 V upgrade is on table. Fast track option to counter rafale and su30 . How will they progress with that . Only time will tell .
    By the way Americans are very happy with perfomance of f16s against su30 . Aim 120 kill against one of the latest war machines of russia in decades . This real time missile test with decades old american tech against russian latest tech gave psychological superiority to American weaponry .

    Wait for good news for PAF ....

    Great point.
    IMO this realisation is the biggest reason for the Americans returning to Pakistan.
