Perhaps we need large underground maintenance facilities. Should not be difficult to build about the size of an aircraft carrier.
Such underground facilities are operationally possible to make on a new location (provided lots of funds are available). Mega construction on existing bases (in present security situation) is not viable option.

Sir, the news was that PAF spent 300 million USD on Shahbaz Airbase setup to prep for the F-16s

An unfortunate thing that we were expecting to have BVR fleet of F-16 in the year 1994-95, but we attained that capability in the year 2014 a delay of 20 year due to Pressler amendment

US provides Pak with missiles before Bush visit

Press Trust of India

Islamabad, March 1, 2006|19:30 IST

The US has provided Pakistan Air Force (PAF) with AGM-154 'Beyond Visual Range (BVR)' stand-off missiles, ostensibly to target terrorist hideouts.

While state-run news agency said Pakistan has attained another landmark in modern missile technology by producing a joint standoff weapon system capable of hitting "over-the-horizon" targets with accuracy, 'Pakistan Observer' newspaper said the AGM-154 system was provided by US ahead of President George W Bush's visit to the country.

According to the daily, the announcement of Pakistan acquiring the BVR missile system came at the Corps Commanders meeting presided over President Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday.

The system uses technologies called 'Integrated Global Positioning System' and Inner-shell Management System Navigation and could engage targets 70 km away.

This apparently is the first BVR missiles the PAF has acquired that could be fired from a distance without coming into visual contact with the enemy.

It could be fired from fighter jets fitted with sensors.

The missile was provided by US reportedly to stem criticism arising out of its spy planes firing similar missiles at a village in Bajore tribal agency last month to target Al-Qaeda second in command Ayaman al-Zawahiri killing upto 18 civilians.

As part of equipping Pakistan with military hardware to fight terrorists, US has granted approval to sell latest models of F-16s and supplied a fleet of helicopters, transport and sea surveillance planes.

As far as I remember yes there were some rumours regarding AGM-154 and the basis of these rumours was the acquisition of H2/H4 which people at that time mistook as JSOW

Thats untrue, a typical Indian *over-reporting* just to create hype about Pakistan's military capabilities.
