Our blk 52’s are probably much more capable then Su 35’sSince F 16 become obsekete we need tgese jets
I’ll believe this when they have a aesa radar for their Su 35 and when they have a bvr better then meteor or pl-15 or aim120 or even sd10russia offers cutting edge
We need the J-16D, should offer Russia some $$$ to allow it's exportIn fact many of the Russian defense stuffs aren't up to the mark as shown at the multiple fronts. Especially, there electronic systems, even at their top notch products for the foreign clients, are easy to debug and counter. Is it intentional?!?
@PanzerKiel has already said about pantsir deal it collapsed long ago.There was interest shown by PAF in SU 35 in 2015 but now again news is surfacing even my friend in russia who has links says pakistan military is in discussions to get SU 35 and oantsir Air defence System
For that $ isn't enough! It requires alignment which comes with pains. And, Pak is doing that....We need the J-16D, should offer Russia some $$$ to allow it's export
We also don't want to run with too many different aircraft.The word is since Egypt has pulled out of the deal, even though some of it's ordered SU-35s have been manufactured, Russia has offered them to Pakistan with a very tempting credit line.
However, in all likelihood, Iran will most probably pick them up.
