    This is pretty funny if true. Qatar is apparently sending a team of Pakistani pilots to train for their first batch of Rafales!
    Rough google translation below:
    Revealed to media reports, the government of Qatar for sending Pakistani pilots for training on the French Rafale, had been contracted with Paris on a recent purchase.
    She reports that the Qatari government had contracted with France to buy 24 Rafale fighter aircraft, worth 6.3 billion euros, last May, and then demanded the lifting of the deal to 36 aircraft, valued at 9.45 billion euros.
    The reports revealed that the Qatari government did not send the Qatari pilots to train on the Rafale aircraft, but pilots Pakistanis sent to the French capital Paris.

    1. source is not credible.
    But
    2. well army / airforce of gulf countries are being trained by Pakistan since long. Even Pakistan army is securing borders of some gulf countries. So no surprise there

    I think may be for long term partnership between Qatar and Pakistan which will expand
    Such friendly gesture is very common between GCC countries and Pakistan and not out of ordinary

    Many GCC troops routinely visit Pakistan for training and joint drills, the focus has expanded into joint projects to tackle terrorism and many other modern challenges

    This mutual cooperation goes back 20-40 years and is nothing extra ordinary in retrospect of present day realities.

    Similarly there is possibility of Qatar aquiring JF17 thunder to compliment Rafale obviously not if but when it happens it would also be a quite normal thing

    • Qatar & Paksitan , solidified friendly ties with a long term Gas Supply Deal for bettement of both economies of Qatar and Pakistan as part of long term regional friendly ties

    Rubbish. Non of these GCC countries rely on Pakistan. Please stop smoking on the ummah weed. GCC contract out their defence to America. As facts and history prove. GCC purchase only from America/Europe to buy influence in those countries. Pakistani's? They are just 'miskeen' to be hired as private bodyguards or do the dirty work.

    Even there the plum jobs are given to Indian's by GCC. GCC/KSA are India's biggest beneficiaries. This is fact. Just google the amount of money that is pouring into India from GCC - so much that it has lifted India which enables it to then spend more on it's military.

    How does a cool $72 billion going from GCC to India sound?This is every year - Pakistan got $48 billion one off Chinese investment under CPEC and entire country is in orgy.

    This news is totally BS.
    We all know Qatar and Sisi don't like each other and I don't expect any Egyptian newspaper to say anything good about Qatar and vice versa.

    BS big time. The French contract is such that only Qatar AF pilots will train and fly the Rafales. No Pakistanis are allowed to even touch their jets....

    GCC's countries aren't found to do charity.
    Why would GCC stupidly rely on Pakistan after it refuses to join them in Yemen?

    Well it is quite possible the current news was leaked out from Viral Network however we can only wait till official news comes from inside. We do train folks in regular basis associated to other military (GCC)

    The news sites appear to belong to Egypt by the way (about Qatar sending Pakistani Instructors) to get familiar with Rafale and then train the local pilots

    Now , irani site reported

    (IRANIAN reporting source)
    http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2016/11/25/495089/Egypt-Syria-Hama-Daesh-Saudi-Arabia

    Egypt has reportedly sent 18 helicopter pilots to Syria to support the war-torn Arab nation in its fight against terrorism, and mulls more deployments to the same end early next year.

    On Thursday, Lebanese As-Safir paper cited “well-informed Arab sources” as reporting that Egypt had dispatched the pilots to an airbase in the western Syria city of Hama on November 12, adding that the contingent was joined by four senior Egyptian military figures upon arrival.


    So Egypt is helping Asad and then this news is going in Egyptian viral networks (in arabic) not poping up in English


    Its really confusing becasue there are various parties reporting on the item not the direct representatives of the governments (third party reports )
