Not only USA is our top export market. We have trade surplus with US. That means we import much less stuff from US then we export. They still can influence us with economy. If they put duties on our export materials or deny entry we are doomed. We are in trade deficit with China massively.
I am sure, you are aware out IT industry almost solely run on US clients.
Secondly, don't you think PAF still needs US for maintenance, if not upgradation for 75 F-16s. These F-16s are currently most capable platform in the our service.
Lastly, we are over dependent on US technologies which we overlook. From computer processing units to GPS, everything is property of USA. I have thrown details in some other thread don't want to repeat all over but I disagree with the analysis that procuring J-10Cs will completely remove US influence. Yes it may reduce it a bit.. but completely remove? Not a chance until we become economically & technologically independent.
