In Case You Didn’t Know, There Exists A Pakistani “Top Gun” Movie Featuring PAF JF-17 Thunders vs IAF Mirage 2000s

A screenshot of an air combat scene from Pakistani "Sher Dil" movie via YT video below.

Here’s a scene from a movie that someone has dubbed “Pakistan’s response to Top Gun”.

“Sher Dil” (Urdu for “Lion Heart”) is a Pakistani action movie released on Mar. 22, 2019.

The film tells the story of a young pilot, Haris Mustafa, the grandson of Pakistan Air Force hero pilot who died in a PAF F-86 Sabre during clashes with Indian Gnat fighters in 1965. The young Mustafa wants to become a combat pilot so he joins the PAF Academy and, long story short, he eventually becomes a fighter jock flying the JF-17 Thunder, Pakistan’s most advanced combat aircraft.

The JF-17 is a lightweight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft developed from a joint venture between the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) and the Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China. It’s considered a 4th Gen. fighter If confirmed, this would be the first kill of an aircraft by the JF-17 (the Thunder shot down an Iranian spy drone in 2017).

One of the scenes of Sher Dil, a movie that some Asian media outlets called “Pakistan’s response to Top Gun” shows a dogfight between two PAF JF-17s and two Indian Air Force Mirage 2000s, a scene that may bring to your mind what happened earlier in the morning in the skies over Kashmir during clashes between Indian and Pakistani jets on Feb. 26-27, 2019.

As you may recall, the Indian Air Force launched airstrikes on terror camps across the Line of Control at the border between India and Pakistan. The raid was carried out in response to the suicide attack that killed 40 CPRF (Central Reserve Police Force – the largest of India’s Central Armed Police Forces) soldiers earlier that month. As a consequence of the Indian air strikes, the Pakistani launched retaliatory raids across the Line Of Control (LoC). During such missions, IAF and PAF jets were involved in aerial clashes over Kashmir whose outcomes are still unclear.

All the details of what happened in those days are contested, so much so it’s impossible to get a clear idea of what has really happened based on a lot of conflicting claims. While some of these could be easily debunked, others couldn’t be verified. We are not even sure a certain kind of aircraft took part to the skirmishes or not, even though both sides provided pretty detailed accounts.

As explained back then, the only fact, that has been confirmed by both sides, is that an IAF MiG-21 Bison was shot down and its pilot captured by the Pakistani forces. We don’t even know for sure which kind of aircraft downed the Indian Fishbed derivative: some sources claim if was a JF-17 Thunder, others say it was an F-16.

With this in mind, the Sher Dil scene below shows two IAF Mirage 2000s intruding into Pakistani airspace and causing the PAF to scramble two JF-17s to intercept them. The short clip is interesting as it provides a glimpse into Minhas Airbase, located to the northwest of Islamabad, homebase to the 16(MR)sq “Black Panthers” of the Pakistani Air Force. Unfortunately, after the 00:47 mark, all the flying scene is CGI. Still, the initial footage, that shows the pilots scrambling to the jets, strapping into the cockpit and taking off for the intercept mission, show the JF-17 Thunder pilots’ helmet, flight gear, patches and some other pretty rare and cool details.

In this case, the outcome of the aerial engagement is clear but if you read some reviews, you’ll find out that Sher Dil, released less than one month after the clashes over Kashmir, is more a story of cameraderie and unexpected friendship between Pakistani and Indian pilots than war between the two rival nations.

Yes I'm aware but he was trying to say how the movie shouldve used people of all complexions to represent Pakistan. Like American movies but then he went on a racist/ "arabs ze best" rampage

You need only one post to say that not pages of comparing Arabs with dark skinned south Asians to justify your inferiority complex.

A few observations, which the audience wouldn't even bother about, they enjoyed JF-17 shooting down a Mirage-2000:

1. JF-17 were scrambled without SD-10 BVR missile since the dog fight had to be WVR for interest of audience probably. The IR-missile was fired from under wing pylon where SD-10 is supposed to be carried. BVR combat is less thrilling for audience i suppose.

In the Hollywood movie, AirForce One, as far as i remember, F-15s fired their Aim120 at Mig-29s from a long range as Mig-29s approached AirForce One, some Migs were destroyed. Any other movie showing BVR combat ?

2. Two fuel tanks under wings, nothing under the belly, 4 x PL-9. The best config for interception ?

3. No AWACs on station.
I remember Transformers movie showing AWACs most of the time when action was about to begin. Eyes in the sky shows better monitoring of the air space.

4. Since its an AF movie, with fighter aircraft, SAMs play no part.

5. Can't see Mirage-2000 carrying any A2G weapons unless i missed it. No mention if A2G weapons have been dropped already ? IAF sends its Mirage-2000 for a dog fight ?

6. JF-17's engine is Russian and the Russians have already lost a Mig-21 in reality and the move shows debris entering into RD-93 resulting in engine failure. Give the Russian tech a break, Lollywood turning into Hollywood here.
