This desperation of Pakistan for mere 8 F 16's make me think about the quality of JF17s.

F-16 is currently frontline fighter jet of PAF while JFT is its work horse jet.

PAF should push delivery of AIM-9X block-2 missile under WoT umbrella because those missiles can also hit ground targets now. :)

Quote:

Raytheon’s AIM-9X Block II would have made Top Gun a very short movie. It’s the USA’s most advanced short range air-air missile, capable of using its datalink, thrust vectoring maneuverability, and advanced imaging infrared seeker to hit targets behind the launching fighter. Unlike previous AIM-9 models, the AIM-9X can even be used against targets on the ground.

These changes will help keep it competitive against foreign missiles like MBDA UK’s AIM-132 ASRAAM, RAFAEL of Israel’s Python 5, the multinational German-led IRIS-T, and Russia’s R73/ AA-11 Archer. So far, only American fighter types can use AIM-9X missiles, but that hasn’t stopped a slew of export requests and sales, especially in the Middle East.

Just like you are desperate for Dassault Rafales.
Btw just so you know... JF-17 is a multirole fighter while f-16 is an air superiority fighter.. We need both of them in our inventory.

Cheap tactics like these drop the diplomatic profile of the leaders...do you ever see Pakistan complaining to Russia or US over weapon sales?

Yes, Pakistan complains about US weapon sales to India all the time, harping on the fact that such sales will cause an imbalance in the region. Not that US listens to Pakistan either, selling India billions in military equipment. And unlike Pakistan, they don't rely on "charity" on getting them. Who do you think US prefers to do business with?

In essence, Pakistan wants parity with India when it comes to US. It just burns Pakistan to no end that this is not so. From military sales to civil nuclear agreements to Kashmir, US is more apt to listen to India.

As for India complaining about F-16 sale, this is all par for the diplomatic course. The difference here is that India complains much more loudly than Pakistan.

The desperation of indiots make me think how insecure these indiots are, go cry baby.

LOL the last time I heard India had the largest below poverty population on planet earth. Before handing out lectures on poverty why don't you set an example? Ditch the Rafales and feed your poor...



You should try much harder... It seems that right now you are heading towards failure.

Bad time for the Indian establishment. If Republicans get to the White House, they'll be delighted to see their old foes - Russia, Iran etc. - surging ahead, not to mention ISIS. It may be the replay of the Reagan era all again for the Paks. Pak establishment shouldn't be too unhappy...

No Sir, there is no butthurt here. In fact I am sure that this 8 F16 will force India to expedite Rafale deal or even make India increase the deal number.

But you didn't answer, why is PAF so desperate for just 8 F16's.



SU30 MKI are heavy and air dominance fighters. On the other hand, Rafale are medium fighters, are replacements for Mig21 and are multi role fighters

JF17 is light weight and F16 is medium+ weight fighter

:laughcry:

Your third-rate name calling says it all. You're the one who is boasting about 8 F-16s like Pakistan won the lottery.

India is a superpower but cries every time USA sells anything to Pakistan.

Of course India will complain. These F-16s can, and will be, used against India even though they are earmarked for counter-insurgency tasks. This is the diplomatic game that India is suppose to play.

It is a great honor for us that we again gain confidence and love of our dear friend called america.
By the way how many total fighter planes we will get in near future from them. 8 is just peanuts.

As I said before, MKI and Rafale are different types of fighter are not replacement for each other. On the other hand F16 and JF 17 are similar type of fighters and play similar type of roles

Are you high on ignorance ?
F-16 is a MEDIUM category fighter with weapon loading capacity way more than JF-17 which is a LIGHT category fighter.
Just like MKI is HEAVY & Rafale is MEDIUM.
