I don’t know what makes people think these systems are too expensive for Pakistan. Apparently the money is present when we’re buying top of the line helicopters, tanks and artillery, were even asking China to make them better and more expensive. We’re doing the same while buying ships and submarines worth several billion dollars, but when it comes to SAMs we’re so broke that we have to buy used systems or buy an older model. It’s not like that.On lighter note with discounts and perhaps with some upgrades to make it effective. As it was stated in social media in recent past that HQ9 is much expensive system and is out of reach for Pakistan or China is reluctant to provide systems on discounted rates/long credit line basis.
