what does CAATSA affect specifically in the Pak-US context? W ill it lead to stoppage of deliveries of additional F-16s that pakistan isn't buying? or the AH-1Zs that the US isn't delivering? or the engines for the T-129s that the US isn't signing off on? or the OHP Frigate re-armament that the US blocked?
gas turbines for ships?
the trade surplus?
doing a Cambodia on Pakistan?

There are better options available, depending on what PA/PAF priorities are:

Long Range SAMs:
S-350Aster-30FD-2000 (Export HQ-9)
Missile Range120 km100-120 km125 km
Loadout12 missiles/TEL8 missiles/TEL4 missiles/TEL
GuidanceActive Radar SeekerActive Radar SeekerSARH Seeker
ControlTVC Motor + Lateral ThrustersTVC Motor + Lateral ThrustersTVC Motor
Peak Maneuvrability60 G60 GUnknown (but likely to be ~20g)

S-350 Strengths:
- It has 12 missiles on each launcher
- Sanction proof
- potential integration with a whole range of advanced, low-frequency russian radar systems like the RLM-LE aka Nebo-UM (VHF/UHF band, 600 km range), the RLM-DE aka GAMMA-DE (L-band, 600 km range) and RLM-S aka GAMMA-S radars

FD-2000 Strengths:
- it can be potentially upgraded with longer range missiles
- potential integration with a variety of chinese radars

Medium Range Options:
There are a lot of medium range options available:
1) Camm-ER/Land Ceptor (40+ km range)
2) Umkhonto-ER-IR (30km) and Umkhonto-R (60km)
3) HQ-16C (70 km)
4) Hisar- O+

But the best option would be to wait for the Turkish SIPER which is expected to debut in 2023 with a multi-missile configuration, and a maximum range of 150+ km.
Fs-2000 is 125miles or 200 km later version are better and with dual seekers and active plus more range but range is less important vs pk, eccm and quality is

YJ-18 anti-ship cruise missiles with a strike range of 340 miles, CJ-10 land-attack cruise missiles (range 932 miles) and HHQ-9 surface-to-air missiles which can engage aircraft up to 186 miles away.

That’s is 300km range 4 hq9

Don't know about radars. But discussions are still underway for an air defense system meant to full fill Air Force demands.

Yes TPS77 never came . It was pretty obvious , so now which one are we getting and any idea what those low level radars were.
TPS43 & LAADS also need a replacement now ,
