@DGPR_PAF

On this day, 01 December, 1942, the oldest squadron of PAF, No 6 ATS Squadron, nicknamed the “Antelopes”, was raised at Trinchinopoloy, as a Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron on Hawker Hurricane MK-II aircraft. The legendary squadron also participated in World War II and after 14 August, 1947, it became a part of the Royal Pakistan Air Force. The Squadron initially used Spitfire, Dakota and Bristol Freighter aircraft; and later induction of Lockheed C-130B Hercules transports aircraft in 1963, enabled the Sqn to play a formidable role in the

following PAF operations. During the 1965 war, the sqn was modified as a bomber sqn and then CAS, Air Marshal Nur Khan himself led a daring bombing mission onboard C-130 aircraft. For its participation in wars of 1948, 1965 and 1971, the Sqn was awarded with 04 battle honours.

The squadron also played a crucial role in Operation Zarb-e-Azb and Radd-ul-Fasaad where combat crew of No 6 Squadron operated in synergy with fighter elements of PAF and troops of Pak Army to strike decisive blows to the terrorists. Equipped with C-130 Hercules aircraft, which

are the backbone of all logistic support operations, the sqn has always lived up to its illustrious history of valour and bravery. Today the sqn continues to participate in logistic support, relief and other operational missions whenever called upon by PAF and the nation.

And that replacement will be other than c130 new variant
The US seriously needs to reconsider what it can or cannot sell to Pakistan. If India can purchase weapons from Russia, which is a Chinese ally, then I don't see any problems in selling Pakistan brand new (or even used) C-130s.
