    Albeit, much has been written and published about the outcome of confrontations between PAF F-16s and EF Typhoons of an undisclosed country during one of the Anatolian Eagle series of exercises held in Turkey. Most of the details came from a third party with Air forces Monthly magazine being the most authentic source when it published the news in one of it's editions covering the F-16s operational history with the PAF. Again it failed to name the Typhoon operator. There was also an interview allegedly by a PAF pilot carried out by various journals which repeatedly mentioned the RAF as the Typhoon participants in the exercise which in due course proved to be false news. Since PAF like others don't like to make a song and dance about it's achievements during mutual or multi national exercises, it remained unclear as which country's EF Typhoons were repeatedly beaten by the PAF. However over the period, the identity of at least one PAF pilot and the Typhoon operator has emerged in certain sites and narratives along with some images.

    The real opponent who lost in all three set-ups against the PAF F-16s.

    That's all happening or has happened.
    The PG earlier did cause some upsets.

    PAF was always best with WVR combat, so this doesnt come as surprise. The other factors like BVR, AWACS support etc should be considered too.

    PAF: 3 IAF: 0 Allegedly.

    Unfortunately the IAF in this case is Italian AF and not the saffrons next door.

    I still think we should buy the Italian surplus Typhoons and run them through a MLU program.

    This is between the F-16 and Typhoon T1, it’ll be a different story against the T3, esp. with the Captor-E AESA radar once that’s integrated to the T3.

    I agree with the markings, the picture attached could be wrong, kindly open the article it clearly says it was RAF.

    The article in the register does mention the RAF. If True, it is very impressive. But the PAF needs better planes the T1 Typhoon would be a good starting point for us.
