    The picture says PAF base Masroor, which wouldn't be surprising considering C-802A was integrated to the platform. Just can't tell if the squadron will use Block-1s or 2s considering the latter has aerial refueling from the on set, or if squadrons will be mixed.

    Air refuelling probe can be fitted at anytime .. All the jets were in production was block 2 ..

    It is good to say that they are block 2 aircraft

    Next time Squadron no 7 Haiders will get JF17 (that ones are dedicated for sea strikes)

    Good news for us Karachiites. At last, a modern BVR armed fighter squadron will be stationed at Masroor. I was getting tired seeing the same old Mirages fly by since the 1970s ... so much so that for the past several years I had stopped looking when a fighter plane flew by. Great news in fact :pakistan:

    Yeah mate, I know but PAF has planned to fit it from 29th air craft in Block-IIs, that's what I am saying.
