It seems the Jordanians are selling 15 Cobras. Could this be an option for PAA? They'd probably be quite cheap and we desperately need them to provide support along the CPEC corridor. If nothing else it'd be useful as spares?

Also @TOPGUN you'll note a Mirage F-1 is also being sold... :p:

I'm not sure, but Google seems to suggest Jordan plans to operate those and move on the others.

The screenshot says AH-1F (I think the upgraded ones are called AH-1S?

Also there is reference to NTS which I think is night targeting system?

All very confusing. Obviously there is no evidence Pakistan is interested, merely a suggestion on my part that we ought to be.

Our cobras are also night fight capable thanks to C-Nite upgrade. Nothing new.

Would these Cobras be able to fire Chineese / Turkish / SA missles or do we have to keep begging for US approval for Hellfires for these Cobras?

time to put AH1F series in the past...ours have passed through a rigour unseen by many AH1F/S fleets across the globe. Time to work into the next decade and place beautiful Cobras in more museums like the one in Lahore.

could this be back door sale to Pakistan with USA approval ???
A previous sale of Jordanian F16s to Pakistan was stopped by the US.

All resales of US weapons systems are subject to US approval

If Biden is sincere, then Pakistan won't even have to worry about buying second hand from Jordan, Biden will release the systems that it held back to Pakistan.
Biden is pro-Pakistan.
He is not. He's just logical, and thinks about what will benefit the US most in any given situation, if that means being friendlier to Pakistan, than so be it.

This sale could be a test run to see how the new US administration will work with Pakistan, they know PA needs these attack helicopters for clearing out the remaining pockets of TTP and JuA, stopping the sale will mean that even the new Administration is not interested in working with Pakistan.

Pakistan is a junkyard? Why do members always suggest Pakistan buy overused equipment that have no military value?
