36 years ago, 'TOP GUN' was released in theatres. Besides the point while Top Gun is a fictional movie, in the late 80s PAF actually shot down multiple Soviet and Afghan jets over the western border, One of the captured pilots was Russia's future Vice President.
What's baffling is that 90% of Pakistanis don't know this.....

AN/ALQ 257 IVIEWS by NG will be tested as primary EW system for F-16s. The other one is Viper Shield AN/ALQ 254 by L3 Harris. PAF can look into both.

Any system cannot be superior to what the IAF fields per current US policy otherwise they lose the impetus built with the Quad.

Pakistan is in the middle of the river stuck in a whirlpool and going nowhere in terms of camp based defense procurement

Something more to it, PAF had received 28 A models in the initial 40. Next batch was half of the embargoed one with only 02 A models, tails 92729 and 92730.
