    We should get more F16s, we can upgrade it in Turkey. We can ready one more squardon in No time. We can use it as stop gap measure until we move towards next platform .

    Jordan operate's 40+ Cobras attack helis,we could sell them our cobras when we start receiving T-129s,they could buy our cobras to support there fleet,can be used as spares as well.

    Another attractive monster they operate is M109A2 that too in large numbers (350 units),we could procure these cheap SPGs if they are willing to sell,note we recently got 100+ units from Italy and we were looking for more...

    Also they have 7 C-130 E/Hs :devil:

    You have to get US permission for that which I highly doubt you will get.

    Everything is possible in love and war.

    We might see some changes in USA attitude after July or whenever IMF is officially signed.

    Yes, it’s true that Indians have strong lobby in DC but there are Pakistani who are anti-PTI and Anti Army, who can also lobby against F-16s sale. Honestly, I am not worried about Indian lobby. I’m more worried about pro-PPP & Pro-PMLN lobby working against the interest of Pakistan.

    Pakistan's greatest enemy in Washington is Hussain Haqqani never misses an opportunity to go the extra mile against Pakistani interests.

    However looks like more effort to rope him in is in motion.

    There are Pakistani think tanks (pro and Anti-PTI) who meet on monthly bases in DC to discuss these topics.
    Hussian Haqqani is the lobbyist for Zardari and he is using his Indian friends to put pressure on Riyasat-e-Pakistan to make a deal with Zardari.
    Last year Faryal Talpur wanted to make deal (NRO) with establishment and return 4 billon dollars as long as she is not prosecuted but deal was stopped by Zardari. Now Zardari is so desperate that he is even willing to give his sister (put blame on her) as long as he is protected.
