No it probably does mean India. Possibly their C-130 fleet or the Apaches.

Yes, but the notification indicates the systems were all F-16 compatible. I am aware that ALQ-211/AIDEWS can be carried by other aircraft but the notification is F-16 specific. None of the other countries mentioned operate Apache/C-130J.

Exports.

It was reported in June 2015 that JF-17 secured its first export contract from an Asian customer which turned out to be Myanmar. The $560m contract could involve an initial batch of 16 aircraft. A recent image (July 2016) suggested that the 04 prototype has been wearing a new blue color scheme based upon customer's requirements. The first JF-17M (Block II standard) had its maiden flight at CAC on June 13, 2017, featuring a blue/gray camouflage and a color LED landing light on the front landing gear similar to that onboard JF-17B. However the aircraft appears to lack the IFR capability. It was reported in September 2016 that Nigerian AF has decided to acquire JF-17. The initial batch of 3 (later 4?) JF-17N is expected to be delivered in November 2020. All (720, 721, 722, 702?) were speculated to have been built by early 2020. A recent news (December 2017) indicated that JF-17 Block III entered the preliminary design stage in October 2017. A recent image (October 2018) indicated that the first batch of 5 JF-17Ms (S/N 1701-1705) were delivered to Myanmar Air Force, which has become the second customer of the aircraft.

Not sure if these have been posted before, but talented Turkish designer behind the tail art of 2 F-7 squadrons in PAF. Lots of extremely nice patch designs.

Could be that both Samunguli and Peshawar both have a JF-17 unit and a F-7PG unit each. Could be that each air bases is getting a second JF-17 unit and in that case it would make sense to consolidate all F-7s at Mianwali.

Likewise when a second JF-17 unit reaches Masroor than I imagine all the Mirage units will be consolidate at Rafiqui. This would be entirely logical from a logistics, training and economic point of view. 1 Mirage base, 1 F-7 base, then the "teeth" of PAF consisting of 3 F-16 airbases and 4 JF-17 airbases.
