Why not offering them JF -17 and buy their F-16 :cool:
Issue with Iraq (and a few other Arab countries) is not the actual equipment per se, but sustainment, training, availability of trained manpower, maintenence facilities, logistics, advanced weapons training and spares reserves. The actual pilot and the plane are the top of a very big pyramid of effort as we know. Often the top of the pyramid if acquired with little effort at the base of it, of the base of it being effectively contracted out so that when the conrtacts are terninated at that level the top of the pyramid, the very cutting edge and tip of the spear, become very blunted.

Now PAF has always always always focused on the base and getting that right. This is where we can help many nations, in addition to our combat experiance.

Maybe buy their F-16s and guarantee them a purchase slot for AZM. They may or may not buy it, but make it seem that access to that jet won't be as liberal as the Mushak
I thought their F16's were rubbish, basic of the basic version, everything striped, to ensure they cant be effective against Israel.
Are they really worth acquiring, other then for spare parts?

From what I gather they are regular Block 52s, just delivered without AMRAAMs. If they were basic US would not be as worried as it is now of of them falling in Iranian hands....
