Countries still buy F-16s though and F-35 may be "the next big thing" but it will take a while to be inducted into Air Forces across the world. 5th generation isn't going to last for long as there isn't much difference between 5th and 4th. Even 4.5 generation can do a lot of the work of 5th generation which mostly looks as a stopgap for 6th generation which is more likely to be a game-changer in warfare.PAF is past JF-17s. Project Azm is where everything lies. Its like everyone was talking about F-16s while Raptors and F-35 was the next big thing. Even now, while we look upto those 5 Gen crafts, the work on 6 Gen is the hidden diamond.
I am glad Pakistan won't induct any new US platform but also sad at the same time for not having their marvels of art.
He couldn't differentiate between C-130 and P3c.
True.So a new sqn will be raised in North? Or some F-7 Sqn will be re-equipped?
