Imagine if Navy goes HQ9 route. Then Navy won't be buying trucks with big tubes, but ships with big tubes.ab tau tootnay k liye dil bacha bhi nahin hai..... @Tipu7
Pantsir is out of equation... Russians simply backed off from their contract due to some special reasons... A Chinese variant of Pantsir is now being considered. FD2000 is about to arrive though. is it confirmed? about both Pantsir and FD-2000?defence.pk
Yes that makes sense. But why would the PAF go for its own customised version of a system already inducted by the army? How would their roles be different?HQ-9 is a modified version of FD-2000, already with P.A. The interesting part is, PAF is getting further modified version of HQ-9 (FD-2000 previously) like a tailor made version for PAF.
Do we remember there was a news about Pakistan detecting USAF fighters above the sky of Arabian Sea? A lot of fun was made about PAF and detecting F-35 near or close to Pakistan Air Space but just pay attention to what he said.
Anchor Person is not wrong on most of accounts. He is directly referring to his sources and I don't see anyone with having such career with Media will ever risk like that and cause embarrassment through lies & made claims.
Now that is the secret recipe that no one else might ever know exactly. Army with it's own doctrine/tactics and PAF with own doctrine/tactics making sure to build a formidable defence in layer by layer and step by step manners. One can assume per roles and their different set of requirements. So you do not procure same system of similar work/capability like a uniform pattern. I am sure that we work on different levels & cover every patch with diversification in controlled approach. We don't have luxury to buy everything out there and allocate man/economy but a smart & intelligent working approach can overcome a lot of shortcomings and can help build even a far better defence/offensive package. Similarly, PN will be having their own set of equipment as per PN's requirement/doctrine & tactics. These systems wouldn't work individually always but connect to a central command and therefore, all military branches been conducting joint exercises as well. Interoperability is the key and I am pretty confident that Pakistan Armed Forces are well prepared in this area.Yes that makes sense. But why would the PAF go for its own customised version of a system already inducted by the army? How would their roles be different?
That means Army and Air Force are going for same system. Good one but I am pretty sure we would also go a a system like SPADA. It seem Air Force is going to built its own three layered Air Defence system to protect its installations.
Army had LY80AE, FM90, MANPADS (Anza and Stinger for eg) as well as SPAA, such as 35mm GDF guns and what notWhat AD systems did we have in place during 2019 skirmish?
