If the UK cannot afford to operate these advanced variants where it has all the infrastructure and people to operate them alongside the A400M's - then how can Pakistan afford to ?? Earlier H models - etc - i get - but the J's are a different and more expensive breed.

If anything - I see India more likely picking these up and not Pakistan given the commonality with their existing C130J fleet ..

I think PAF has bought itself a decade before it will even look at options to supplement with Hercs, after the recent used ones we bought.
I think they should also wait and see if Saudis go for it in large numbers as well and might get some local maintenance setup PAF could use down the line.
The crux really will be how much capital expenditure can they really afford for non-essential items with the focus being to induct new fighter jets atm.

Saudis won't go for C-130's. More like Galaxy's. I also heard they were interested in Y-20 from China. Expect some defense deals beyond the drones in KSA-China in the years to come, probably starting from Y-20. Pakistan should pick up the British one's also.

They will go for the Embraer potentially. If they retire their H models, PAF might be able to pick some, but who knows
