@PanzerKiel Our current Air base infrastrcuture is incapable of housing larger UAVs , the purpose built UAV bases we have , contain too small hangars which are already reached their maximum capacity with Shahpar-1/Shahpar-2/Burraq/Uqab UAVs , while even the Mianwali Airbase where the WL2s have been spotted only have < a dozen shelters capable of supporting large UAVs , so the question arises will we see new drone airbases like what PAF has done in the past

There are already separate air bases exclusively for UAVs having a secondary option for fixed wing aircraft.

Among other there are exclusive MALE UAV bases at Murid, Bhawalpur, Sukkur. They might share the runway but their hangers etc. are separate. For smaller UAVs
Mangla is the main base.

1. i literally mentioned " the purpose built UAV bases we have " in my message above
2. Neither of these bases ( Murid/Sukkur ) can accomodate MALE UAVs at the moment as they are at full capacity , they are purely used by older types of Shahpar-1/Shahpar-2/Burraq/Uqab/Falco series UAV and with Shahpar-2 entering service , those Shahpar-2s are being assigned here and so it wont be possible to accommodate new MALE UAVs such as the WL-2 , Anka & the PAC one especially given the high amount of orders on those drones
3. Bhawalpur is the only MALE UAV base so far , but it is also a Army aviation base and the UAVs based are CH4s which are then again operated by the PAA and not PAF , so that still goes against my point of having no space in the exsisting infrastructre for PAF UAVs

How many WL2 and Anka to be inducted?
Wing Long II number reported in Chinese media is more then 50. As for ANKA no clue. But if Pakistan is going to produce them Pakistan won't be producing it if we are going to just induct 10 to 15. If we are going to produce them then you can be sure that we would induct at least 50 of them also.

But when it reported by Chinese numbers for WL2 was 48 and to assembled at PAC, but now we are just importing them instead moving local assembly of Anka , so numbers might we swapped
