F-104 Starfighter Units in Combat is a new book coming out in November by Peter Davies. I have looked at the previews & it contains detailed analysis of PAF's Starfighter deployments during Indo-Pakistan wars. Would love to buy this book, when it becomes available in November.

is the first supersonic kill thing true?
It is not the first in the world. I just checked with someone knowledgeable.

''The world's first Supersonic kill was by an F-100 against a Mig-17 on 4th April 1965 in Vietnam.
The IAF Mystery shot down by Sq Ldr Amjad Hussain in 1965 was the first Supersonic kill by an F-104 in the world. ''
