The manual AA guns are still being used but for what purpose?!
theyre not 'manual' as per say. Skyguard comes with a FCR to track and lead targets automatically, alongside this, alot of Pakistans GDFs are upgraded with Rhienmetal's AHEAD ammo which effectively kinda turns each bullet into a little warhead, meaning they are programmed with a time of flight and then explode releasing multiple bearings to engage incoming targets. These are still a highly effective means of point defense against things such as loitering munitions in their terminal stages, low flying aircraft, missiles, etc.

he was not talking about gdf , there were older manual Chinese 57mm AA guns being used , i think so those 57mm AAs were upgraded with digital controls as well

Unconfirmed reports indicate Iran, Russia, China, Turkey are competing to win a deal with Pakistan to modernize her Air-Defense network with modern Short-range defense systems.

China already won the long-range deal with FD-2000BP.

we have plenty of point defence weapons

what we really need is air defence

but integrating a true air defence network with Air Force will cost billions + training

so I think we stick to point defence

At best I can see more Mi 35 coming and may be armed version of MI 17. Although I would love see Pakistan adopting Russia's future soldier program called RATNIK.

Why not Mi28 or Ka52?? Wheeled armoured cars BTR family for tribal areas? I would love 15-26 Su35 with permission to integarde Chinese and Pakistani weapons maritime or deep strike role Buk series medium range SAM system intergeneration

Skyguard radar should also be upgraded/replaced with Rheinmetall X-TAR3D three-dimensional tactical acquisition radar.
