PAF has total of 29 transport aircrafts, as of 2006, which r divided in 3 categories: light transport, VIP transport, and Heavy tactical transport. For more info pls visit "http://www.geocities.com/Baja/Dunes/1107/HTML/paf/inven01.htm"Discuss all the transport aircrafts in the Pakistan Air Force. How they can be improved, do we have enough aircrafts? Can transport aircraft be used for bombing?
The only bombs that would be used would probably be of the air fuel variety. Otherwise it is a slow moving target and a waste of resources to use it any other way.i heard from somewhere, can't remember where that PAF can modify their C-130's to drop bombs and use it as a bomber?
Understand PAF used C-130 to drop napalm in 1965. Canisters of napalm were simply pushed out of the door. There is however a C-130 Gunship in existence and was used in the Vietnam war.The only bombs that would be used would probably be of the air fuel variety. Otherwise it is a slow moving target and a waste of resources to use it any other way.
This is a pretty interesting find, C-130 as a :shocked: Bomber.it was reported that pakistan had configured a C-130 to drop a weapon it was in 1990 though
