I think the number of AWEC is 11.

4 erieye ordered originally (2 damaged, 1 destroyed, but all were apparently restored/repaired to working order.

3 erieye ordered in 2017

4 ZDK-03
---
11 AWEC : still more than most other nations. Only ones with more are:

1. USA - 87 split between navy and AF
2. China - 28 split between Navy and AF
3. Russia - 16 only AF
4. Japan - 17 Split between navy and "defense force"
5. NATO - 16

Yes 9 saab 2000 of that 6-7 are awecs enabled
no ,
PAF has got :
Original 3 of 4 Erieyes active as 1 was lost and considered write off , and 2 were repaired.
Then 2nd batch of 3 more Erieyes in 2017-2018.
Then a 3rd batch which was spotted by aviation spotters of atleast 2 Erieyes being delivered in 2021-22.

So this way PAF has got 8 Erieyes operational while total number would be 9 including the write off one. Also PAF also has a single EO sensor fitted ISR SAAB-2000.

isn't it that one of them ordered/bought initially was not fitted with Erieye system?

Bombardier based global eye on cards for PAF in next few years

I dont see Pakistan getting the Global Eye - truly.

Given the rate at which advances that both Turkey and China are making and how Sweden has tied itself up in knots over the "India-Pakistan" relationship - it will be from either of these providers.

PAF NEEDS JET ENGINE BASED ERIEYE TO COMPLMENT EXISTING PROPELER BASED FLEET WHICH IS MAINTANANCE HUNGRY AND SAAB 2000 IS NO MORE IN PRODUCTION AND THIER SPARES HARD TO COME BY SO GULFSTREAMIS A PERFECT MATCH WHICH PAF CONSIDERING

HAWA STANDOFF JAM,MER IS TOTTALY DIFFERENT PROJECT

GLOBAL EYE IS NEED OF HOUR 2 PLATFORMS MIGHT BE BOUGHT OF GLOBAL EYE WHICH HAS GREATER RANGE THAN EXISTING SAAB 200 BASED PLATFORMS OF ERIEYE

Since we have seen a rapid push to acquire more Erieyes since Feb 27 engagement, is it safe to say that PAF is sidelining the Karakorum Eagle?? Did it not live up to its expected potential and become a white elephant??
