Is PAF still open to acquiring more F-16A/Bs from ex-operators as they can easily be upgraded?
And can it become the next Mirages for PAF?
PAF had bought 500 Aim-120C5s and have used them effectively against IAF. IMO, they are also being integrated with JF-17s too.Why do we want more F-16 from ex-operators? Would US give us AIM-120 Ds and electronics with two way communications?
IMO, F-16 jets with AIM-120 C5 are getting obsolete in South-East Asia scenario. This region has moved on to PL-15 and Meteor.
