Son,

The named reads 'AIR FORCE'---no some logo manufacturing company. It is a 'fighting force'.

Even with a 'bad' logo---it will kill as good as it would with the 'right' logo.
Evey job is important and the ones that represent your image before the world are more valuable. PAF is a great institution but let them see where they need to be better.

There is no prode in looking phoney.

Definately will not be surprised if a few Sqds of used F-16s are in the pipeline, relations with US have improved, COAS will visit DC soon, we got US approval for C-130 transfer recently and currently many European F-16 users are taking on board more and more F-35s (Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, Belgium) so will be spares around. My gut feeling is we will try for Dutch/Belgium Vipers as these are close to PAF MLU standard

It'd be awesome if the PAF could get the stored Block-25s/32s. The engines and airframes are basically the same as our Block-52s, so we can support them. But we can also tap into LM's 6,000-hour SLEP and, optionally, the F-16V or even the ÖZGÜR upgrades. TAI can carry out the ÖZGÜR to the Block-25/32 as it has the source codes. This could finally unlock our F-16s for the SOW role via the SOM and ATMACA.

That said, it's starting to seem that the F-16A/Bs have a lot more life them than the stated recommendations. Top Air is picking up Israeli F-16A/Bs and upgrading them (reportedly with AESA radars et.al). If a private company thinks investing in new electronics for these birds is worth it, then I think the Block-15s can keep up for a while, even without another SLEP (beyond Falcon UP/STAR).
