No. 7 Squadron, nicknamed the Bandits, is a tactical attack squadron of the #Pakistan Air Force. Which is under the No. 31 Tactical Attack wing. At firstx 7 Sqn was equipped with B-57 Canberra. It was later decided to reequip the Bandits with Dassault Mirage IIIO fighters procured from Australia in 1991. In 1997 the unit received the ex-Australian Mirage IIIO fighters, which had been upgraded under Project ROSE. These ROSE I fighters had been installed with new avionics, including FIAR Grifo M3 radar, which allowed the squadron's role to be changed from tactical attack to multi-role. The squadron was deployed over Balochistan for air defence prior to Pakistan's nuclear tests in 1998. Mirage of No 7 Squadron carried out test of Ra'ad missile.
