    Over 62% of PAF jets are unfit - and they dare to challenge the IAF

    Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman of Pakistan has expressed his serious concerns over the present scenario of Pakistan fighter jets amidst growing tensions with neighbouring India. He reportedly received inputs from his officers in command Sohail Ahmed and Qamar Suleman that over 62% of aircrafts are unfit to be engaged in war. Pakistan needs urgent fund to catch up with growing Indian Air Force.

    As India is about to procure ultra-modern fighter jets such as Rafale, Pak-Fa T50, HAL's LCA etc. under a program of $150 billion to modernise Indian Air Force in upcoming years, Pakistan is looking forward to getting repaired its 30yr old fighter jets to counter India.

    Pakistan’s best and most reliable jet is American F16. Pakistan has, at the moment, a fleet of 74 F16s which it procured from the USA in 1982 (34 years ago). Several parts of as many as 50 F16 jets are not functioning at all. As per Dawn report, Pakistan has given a tender to Turkey to repair them at a cost of $75 million.

    It is notable that India’s most reliable jet is Su-30 MKI and it has a fleet of 272 SU-30 jets which India bought from Russia in 2004.

    Recently, Pakistan reached out to the USA for the procurement of 8 second-hand F16s to use them against terrorists. The deal was almost signed under which Pakistan had to pay only 30% of total $700 million and 70% was to be paid by America itself. However, the Modi government strongly objected to this, as a result, America refused to grant the jets asking to pay all amount.

    Needless to say most of Pakistan’s defence budget is still funded by America. As per Fox News report the USA has given $28.7 billion as military and economic aid in last 14 years. Pakistan received $4.6 billion in a single year of 2010 alone from the USA. After India’s objection, most of aid to the notorious country was blocked by the US congress this year.

    When an article is printed for the sake of local consumption ie for the Indian masses then why can't you guys keep it that way? Why reproduce it on PDF?

    The serviceability rates of PAF Mirages & F-7Ps are around 40%

    Aren't majority of India's Su-30 unfit for combat as well! This happens during peace times, there is no point in having you air force at 100% when there is no war.

    So much fun for the virtual attack on Pakistan. Firstly we are isolated now PAF is unfit yet strikes took place in media, border was crossed and bombed with might Airforce and what not was claimed, seems like someone is hell bent for paper war.

    Go ahead India! You have mighty MKI's. 56 inch chest Modi and all ingredients to wipeout Pakistan. Why are you waiting??? we are fed up totally due to these hollow slogans. Your defense budget is more than our total budget! Still you cry like a dehati aurat against Pakistan in whole world and no one listens to you except your partners in genocide of humanity.

    wow what a reason for inefficient mechanics and service....so how good is availability rates of BAF 100%???
    a squadron of Su-30 mki can devastate your whole air force, so better stay quiet when dealing with air power, you do not have sufficient experience yet, maybe after 30 years you can querk a little.
    on topic: PAF usually experiences spare crunch, only F-16's are capable fighters, other than that rest all or point defence fighters....
