Just wanted to make some addition to flying wing uavs. There is ongoing development of these in many countries but they are mostly jet engine designs. These have higher performance but costly to design with S intakes, coolers and similar challanges. Piston propellers were forgotten until the current drone age and I think these can be made stealthy enough as well depending on the mission type.

Flat-angled panels at the back over the engines would cover it from front and sides. The rotor blades can be made more curved and from hardened glass(radome material of jets for example is highly durable and radar transparent) making it transparent to radars.

They can never be as stealthy as B-2s or future B-21 raiders but for a scout mission of not being detected about 100-150 km from front and sides that would be enough and 1/100 times less costly than developing a dual jet engine flying wing bomber.

They can detect enemy naval fleet for a long range strike from other platforms or they can use sdbs which have about 100km range from stand off ranges without being targeted.


Another application that comes to my mind is stealth awacs. It needs to be a manned version for an awacs though. Flying wing has huge lift potential. Adding a radar over the top would be possible. The radar ofcourse should not be a circular radar dish like in other awacs but an aesa radar inside a box with rcs reduced characteristics ( trapezoidal perhaps).

Just like the concept below. Just an idea.

Why not PAC & GIDs start JV projects with Turkey and China; and maybe with some EU countries?

This is a official poster from a PAF air base , can even be seen in the video PAF released , and is made specially for this exercise as saudi tornados are also shown in poster.

Here's some wild speculation:
We will see a lot of drone strikes over Afghanistan post 9/11/2021 (conducted by Pakistani drones, but never officially acknowledged of course). Reason being the absence of NATO/US, and the strong desire to quickly neutralize TTP assets across the border who will undoubtedly be planning massive regrouping as soon as the US leaves.

Why wait for them to leave? We have seen news regarding using of drones for surveillance over pak-afg border. What's stopping the security establishment from using armed drones today?
