    These frames are really old. Like 40 years old. Not much life left in them.

    Pakistan would need to build storage areas for fighters, it would need to build more airfields, it would need to make sure that it has enough places to store spare parts. It would need to build long term relations with suppliers of spare parts...etc.

    It's a huge undertaking.

    Also, Pakistan has other choices. It can go to Russia or China for similar class of fighters. It won't, because there is no point in it.

    Inducting f15s or Sukhois is pointless right now, as Pakistan is looking to induct a next gen fighter, which would outclass such fighters. It doesn't have money to spare for stop gaps.

    The best thing it can do and is doing right now is buying for thunders, and investing heavily in project Azm.

    At a cost per flight hour of $40k they will need a lot of funds.

    It is better to get new aircrafts which have lower CPFH.

    F-15J is basic F-15A or F-15C. Not even have AESA. They have mechanical radar.

    PAF will not go for air superiority fighters, the category that PAF prefers is multi role. Why does any fighter for sale on market (apart from F-16) has to be a candidate for PAF ? what factor about JF-17 and F-16 doesn't satisfy you ?

    PAF converts all aircrafts, even trainers into A2G and A2A roles.

    These will probably head back to US for spare parts, some might even be bought for cheap by SA and upgraded to F-15SA version, every other US ally is either buying brand new F-35s or F-16Vs, Japan also doesn't have good relations with South Korea. Pakistani people seem to forget you still need US approval to export their fighters to a third country, and they will most likely deny such export to Pakistan.

    This will left China far behind in the race of air superiority. Japan with F 35 and India with Rafale will left chiCh decade behind with Chinese air force shall be left with shitty inventory J series of fighters.

    F-35 is inferior to J-20. F-35 compared to J-20 is F-16 compared to F-15. Just no match. Just no.
