Pakistan F-16s were upgraded in 2010-14 to Blk 52 standards so they most likely will stay here for atleast 10-15 years and therefore will most likely be replaced by 5th gen aircraft. And if by any , any chance Pakistan Pak-US relations improve in next 5-7 years and these get upgraded to blk 70 standards ,these F-16s will stay here till 2045-50.
Maybe Pakistan needs to aim a little higher than that. Having 80s built f16s extended twice to serve for 60 years is not a good thing.

By late 2020s, Pakistan should be looking to get 5th gen aircraft.

Sheikh started to say "JS-10" now he said "G-10C". I hope he would eventually learn the correct name by the time they would be flying at 23rd March parade day.
I think he does wrong pronunciation and funny names as style cause i heard him speaking error free verbatim of given script as information minister during Musharraf's era.

F16 is an excellent multi-purpose fighter, it is different from J10C which is a pure air superiority fighter.

In the South China Sea and East China Sea, Chinese fighters often meet F16 on maritime missions.

Why doesn't Pakistan consider replacing the Mirage with F16?

Considering the relationship between China and Pakistan, I can easily see a scenario where China offers PAF some used J-10As upgraded to J-10C standard in avionics and weapon support. And PAF would just need to pay for the upgrade cost. That would be a good way for PAF to cheaply add capabilities. I really can't see China wanting to keep the older J-10A and J-10S past 2030. Offering them to PAF after MLU and upgrading seems like an obvious move.

Upgraded J-10A are rumored for North Korea.

I think mirages are heavily doctored to carry indigenous SOMs, CMs etc. As for F16s, PAF needs to have the permission to have both structural and hw/sw changes like the way Turkey has....

Becos US denied more F-16 for PAF, plus the price tag of one F-16V/Blk 52 replaced one Mirage is impossible given the budget of PAF. Finally, F-16 is full of string with even PAF using is as self defence against India is being question by US. Given the economy power of India and their alliance against China. US is unlikely to side with Pakistan with India more to gain from US.

JF-17 is the one to replace all Mirage III. F-16 can be used as air superiority given its excellent agility.
What F-16 lacks will be high attitude performance.

I dont think the 16s require high altitude performance. With J10s multirole useage of F16s can be secured as they are currently our top platform for the hi aspect of CAP. THE 16would be ideal f9r SEAD -DEAD once freed up.

Next, it will be 10CJ

Naah.... but Chief Justice is on the mind every time.

According to some members we have tried but were denied

Not denied but CSF is the issue here. They wanted PAF to pay in full, I think.

Becos US denied more F-16 for PAF

Answered as above

Finally, F-16 is full of string with even PAF using is as self defence against India is being question by US.

No questions asked. Please update the info.

Why would USA care or give a shit about what Pakistan does to India?There is no restriction on use or secret deactivation chip.

Why would USA destroy the reputation of their excellent machines to protect a third rated airforce like India’s ?

They love everytime F16 performs well…. It brings them billions of dollars of additional sales.

Am I the only one to notice that F16s have got enormous amounts of new sales since we spanked India ??? Did we hear any sale of Su30??

Now imagine if USA was to say publicly hey Pakistan you can’t cross the border or fire AMRAAM on Sangis….. who would buy their planes ???
