This goes multi pronged. The needs can be laid down;Yes, I felt the need very much.
After the sim.This goes multi pronged. The needs can be laid down;
1. Provide air cover to PN surface and aerial assets.
2. Air strikes against enemy surface combatants.
3. Provide air support to Marines.
4. CAP responsibility over waters held by PN not PAF. This frees up PAF from a primary role in a major theater of battle.
However, then how would PN employ fighter jets along with other Maritime aircraft like ATR in war scenario.
