It sounds like we're stressing our airframes more, which necessitates new-build aircraft. I think we should be pushing PAC's JF-17 output to its limit, possibly look at expanding our order past the 188 aircraft (26 JF-17Bs and 162 Block-I/II/III). Perhaps manufacture a dozen or so for storage/attrition replacements.Post swift retort, PAF has seen a major change in the curriculum where the training doctrine has been tightened like never before. More pilots are being disqualified due to a new syllabus that has been recently innovated.
For example, to qualify for section leader, let's say if there are x number of continuous sorties required. For any reason, in one of the sorties, the aircraft is forced to recover back without completing the mission. That sortie is not counted as per the new curriculum and the entire chain of qualification has to be duplicated. This not only puts the pilots to the test, but also the engineering and other combat support elements involved.
Your earlier verdict of complacency is based on a mere assumption that is actually far from what has been happening in the institution.
