the recent movement of F-7's to Pindi area might be part of this upgrade?

It's really interesting that PAF has chosen to replace the PGs instead of the Mirages first. I thought we would be keeping PGs on for at least another 10 years.

PGs we inducted in mid 90s whilst some of the ROSE MIrages are from 1970s. So seems PAF deems them more worthy and will hold onto these. If PGs go then (apart from combat trainings sqds) that really is the end of the F-7 in PAF service. Ultimately my gut feeling is that it's lack of range sealed it's fate
Actually PG should go first
I said that here on this forum years ago.

There design life is 20 years..so PG will run out of life soon. And will need overhaul

So would we overhaul PGs or just get rid of them and continue servicing just mirage 5

The answer is obvious

PAF will keep mirages(by continous oveehauling and canabilization) and will get rid of PGs and FT-7s as F-7Ps are already gone
