no its pretty easy , just say we need them for pakistan and everyone will say yes sirThe Rafale being sold to India are over priced, and considering the current controversy that Modi is wrapped in currently, buying more over priced Rafales will just become ammunition for the opposition. The opposition may end up accusing him of corrupt and taking bribes from Dassault, which would end up with a long investigation, causing an international relations nightmare for Modi. Even if it turns out that Modi is innocent, the damage will already be done.
Modi can't afford even more problems on top of the farmers protests, and the current economic problems due to covid (and his own incompetence).
doesnt matter its extremely unlikley that we will get any more f16s, the best we can hope for is an upgrade package for aging MLUsIt is a fact Indian Fighter pilots fear the F-16 of the Pakistan Air force, I will not have said this without personal experience.
It matters a lot --- never said any thing about F-16 upgrades or purchases.no its pretty easy , just say we need them for pakistan and everyone will say yes sir

USA found out that stick alone works and carrot maes india very itcy, something they cannot afford
Elon musk has beaten NASA researchers. What are you talking about?elon musk needs to stick to cars and space.
theres many a reason why UAVs can never replace manned platforms entirely, ill leave it to you to figure out why. Hint, one of the arguement involves ethics, the other, offboard controls in a contested environment.
Sounds like you just are buying in to the whole OmG dRonEz R tHe BeSt FuTuRe TeChNoLoGy BS.
Elon also said, an F35 would have no chance against a drone. Guy is an idiot. He may be great with cars and other shit, but he doesnt know what hes talking about here. Its for the same reason you dont ask an engineer for medical advice, or a doctor to build a plane etc
That hue and cry was raised to substantially distance the u.s from Pakistan, which also isnt a new thing for indians to do . Itd be idiotic to assume that iaf fears a handfull pakistani version of handicapped f16's when there are other more potent and advanced categories of aircrafts available to usWhy do you think the Indians made and continue to make such a fuss about Pakistani f-16s?
They can find A C 5 in a pile of dung called India but they cannot locate a big F16. Even if it crash landed in Pakistan they should have enough assetts to take a couple of Photographs and propagate it via their press. So in short it is harder to find an F16 than a 120C5Well they can claim whatever they want but the world demands proof. Where's the shot down f-16?. Its been 2 years and still nowhere to be found.
@JamD @SQ8 so it looks like the PAF is taking the 'brutally honest' path... off-the-shelf fighter for the 2020s and 2030s, and a true in-house NGFA for the 2040s.salam to all....
1. PAF is considering to induct new Fighter Jet platform.
2. JF17B3 will be inducted at the end of this year.
3. New ADS will also be inducted this year
4. on 25th Feb ...day of MIRAGE Jets Golden Jubilee Celebration
5. PAF Next Gen Fighter Jet will be ready by year 2047.
6. Any change in balance of power in the region by India will not be allowed and Pakistan will maintain PAF's qualitative edge.

Makes the most sense and I am glad that this is happening. Especially the 2047 part (Pakistan's 100th anniversary?)
