以色列8架F16成“泡水机”,巴基斯坦有意采购,比买歼10划算多了

1月13日,《以色列时报》对外报道,在上周以色列经历了一场特大暴雨,造成以色列南部的Hatzor空军基地大量积水,有8架F16战机没有及时从地下机库中移出,导致这8架F16被泥水淹没,其中3架受损严重。据悉Hatzor空军基地在上周四凌晨5点遭到暴雨袭击,短短半小时内超过1300万加仑的雨水淹没了基地,地下机库的水位超过1.5米,几名地勤人员也被困机库。
据以色列国防部评估,修复这8架F16战机需要花费相当多的工时和1500万美元/架的维修费,以色列空军打算将这8架F16拆卸成零件备用机,如果有合适的买家也可以当成二手“泡水机”出售。据悉受损的8架F16有3架是16C型、5架是F16I“雷暴”,巴基斯坦已经对这批F16产生了兴趣,有意全部购买。
巴基斯坦空军目前装备了78架F16,包括5架初级的16A/B(不具备超视距作战能力)、14架F16ADF(从约旦买来的二手机)、41架F16A/BMUL(中期升级型号)、18架F16C/D。以色列这8架F16对于巴基斯坦来说非常先进,尤其是最新型的F16I“雷暴”,如果能以低价买到F16I,那可比买歼10划算多了。
F16I由双座的F16D改进而来,配备了可拆卸保形油箱、以色列生产的火控计算机、红外探测器、头盔瞄准系统,雷达也换成了AN/APG-68(V)9多模雷达,信息处理速度是巴基斯坦F16C/D的5倍。F16I的最大起飞重量达到了23吨(歼10只有19吨),拥有强大的挂载能力,能够像重型战机一样执行远程奔袭任务。
巴基斯坦空军每年可调用的资金非常有限,因此对购买性能先进的二手战机这种事乐此不疲,按照巴基斯坦空军的评估,以色列的F16I至少还能继续使用20年,转让价格只有2000多万美元,而采购全新的歼10战机需要大约4000万美元,F16I的航程、载弹量均超过歼10,空战性能互有优势。
On January 13, the “Israel Times” reported that Israel experienced a severe rainstorm last week, causing a large amount of water to accumulate at Hatzor Air Force Base in southern Israel. Eight F16 fighters were not removed from the underground hangar in a timely manner. Eight F16s were flooded with mud, and three of them were severely damaged. It is reported that Hatzor Air Force Base was hit by heavy rain at 5 a.m. on Thursday, more than 13 million gallons of rain flooded the base in just half an hour, the level of the underground hangar exceeded 1.5 meters, and several ground crew members were also trapped in the hangar.

According to the Israeli Ministry of Defense assessment, repairing the eight F16 fighters will take a considerable amount of man-hours and maintenance costs of 15 million U.S. dollars. The Israeli Air Force intends to disassemble these eight F16 fighters into spare parts. If a suitable buyer can Sold as second-hand "soaking machine". It is reported that three of the damaged F16s are 16C type and 5 are F16I "thunderstorms". Pakistan has become interested in this batch of F16 and intends to purchase all of them.

The Pakistan Air Force is currently equipped with 78 F16s, including 5 junior 16A / Bs (without BVR capability), 14 F16ADFs (two mobile phones purchased from Jordan), and 41 F16A / BMULs (medium upgrade models). , 18 F16C / D. Israel's eight F16s are very advanced for Pakistan, especially the latest F16I "Thunderstorm". If you can buy F16I at a low price, it will be more cost-effective than buying the J-10.

The F16I is an improvement from the two-seater F16D. It is equipped with a detachable conformal fuel tank, a fire control computer made in Israel, an infrared detector, and a helmet targeting system. The radar has also been replaced by an AN / APG-68 (V) 9 multi-mode radar. The information processing speed is 5 times that of Pakistan F16C / D. The F16I has a maximum take-off weight of 23 tons (the J-10 is only 19 tons), has a strong loading capacity, and can perform long-range attack missions like heavy fighters.

The Pakistan Air Force has very limited available funds every year, so it is happy to buy advanced used fighters. According to the Pakistan Air Force's assessment, the Israeli F16I can continue to be used for at least 20 years, the transfer price is only more than 20 million US dollars, and the procurement The new J-10 fighter requires about 40 million U.S. dollars, and the range and ammunition capacity of the F16I exceed that of the J-10.

The air combat performance has mutual advantages.

However, Pakistan wants to buy Israel's eight water-filled F16s, and it needs the permission of the United States. At present, the United States is actively selling F16 fighters to India. In order to please India, this transaction may not be allowed.

My Two cents, This news is intended for Indians and absolutely nothing to do with Pakistan

lol - completely unrealistic. If we want spares we can buy them from the US. If they were recoverable, the Israeli's would have had them fixed at the cost of the US taxpayer. Neither nation is allies. They don't want to sell us parts which could help us figure out the capabilities of their frontline fighter. We don't want to risk having equipment with Israeli code and potential malware and bugs built into it, mixed into our fleet.

may or may not be true but guess who was supplying Pakistan with spares during last bout of US sanctions against Pakistan

I hear you say: but but but Israel is an injun ally. then I say during civil war in Sri Lanka tamil tigers were being trained in Israel on how to lay mines and a few miles away sinhalese were being trained in how to sweep mines.

it is a weird twisted world!

I seriously doubt the legitimacy of this flooding excuse. I am surprised that Israel wants to sell Pakistan something - but their excuse of creating surplus spare parts because of flooding is total inside-out-Bull$hit.
