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.
No. 14 squadron is moving to Rafiqui. If it is a permanent move, it'll be an end to Kamra hosting a very prestigious squadron.

No. 2 squadron is moving to Jacobabad.

Hasn't it moved already?

A Thunder Squadron at Jacobabad! What will happen to F16 squadrons we got there? And what's coming up in place of No2 in Masroor?
Probably new birds we hearing all around from China

I was under the impression we could not station Chinese fighters next to the Block 52s

can, they are stored at different parts of the bases, with different personnel for each part.
Official cables leaked by Wikileaks show that even non US aircraft were exempt from landing at the base and they made exemptions for European helicopters and CASA planes. Unsure if this policy has changed, and in fact just in December 2019 Pakistan renewed the technical security contract with US DoD/Booze Allen. Do you have a source?

Visiting Chinese aircraft from PLAAF cannot have F-16s seen in their sight, nor they are to have exercises with them. No rule not having Chinese origin fighters on the same base as PAF Vipers.

guys common stop this debate over western and eastern equipment.

If it is owned and operated by PAF than they can station and mingle as much as they wish.
