One thing to Note is that the JF-17 is leading with F-16 and Rafale on either sides. So if this is an official patch from PK then it is showing that PK has shifted emphasis from F-16 to Thunders.

My understanding is The most potent fighter aircraft are listed in the patch, Thunders from Pak, Vipers from Turkey and Rafale from Qatar

Is he the first Thunder pilot to become AVM?
No, the very first JF-17 pilot who flew the JF-17 on 23rd March 2007 and perform the solo display was AVM Ch. Ahsen Rafique then Wing Commander. He was perhaps also the first test pilot of JF-17 from PAF.

What do the different wings on the breast represent? One has a red crescent, the other three have a 'E'..
E is for Engineering branch. Crescent is for GDP branch. Crescent color (White, Blue, Red) depends on the number of flying hours. Also the shape of wings is different for Engineering and GDP branches
