Mirage III are very old plane. It need to be put out of service soon.
I think all MIRAGES III are already retired. Now we are only using MIRAGE V. They were upgraded recently if I am not wrong.

"Tactical" means it'd be for ground attack role and interdiction according to PA's requirements. Like the sabres were used on the Lahore and other fronts? I mean for striking operationally vital obj such as bridges, railway junctions, supply columns and ground attack.

Why do you need fighter jets for that job? Ballistic missiles and Cruise missiles can do that at a price much cheaper.
