This guy was written off in 1979 when another C-130 crashed into in at Lahore AB during a engine test run. 5 of the 11 C-130 losses have been on the ground while two were lost upon landing instances.
So PAF lost 11 C130s till date ?

Has the PAF ever evaluated the A400M as a replacement for the aging C130 fleet?
It's a much more expensive aircraft
A very good platform, but as griffin mentioned, pretty expensive too. Though if the PAF was ready to replace its fleet then it wouldn’t be out of the question, but keep in mind the C-130 and A400M are in an entirely different weight class. PAF might want to stick to the C-130s weight class and consider smaller options, though they might go for fewer A400M as an equivalent replacement (it depends on wether PAF needs numbers or capability).
A400M is more comparable to IL-76/78.
