9 Erieye AEW&C out of 11 spotted planes? Are the missing 2 the ones destroyed or are these additional two that might be acquired as training platforms? I think he must have meant 11 in total to date, 2 destroyed so it means 9 will be part of PAF as AEW&C.According to Usman Shabbir, plane spotters saw 11 Saab 2000s registered with the PAF, and by his estimation the PAF will ultimately have 9 Erieye AEW&C. Anyways, here's the news I promised by end of year everyone...
Quite accurate. However i think there are 2 more coming taking total number to 9! Lets see.so original order was 6 but then after 2005 earthquake we cut to 4 + 1 x VIP J-019 (which was a very bad idea btw)
in 2012 we had 3 damaged and 1 saved due it being in the air 10040
out of 3 damaged 2 repaired 1 write off (serial 10049) so we were left with only 3 units 10025, 10040 and 10045
2017 onwards we ordered 3 more units which made them 6 in total which matched the original order from 2006, aircraft serial J-038, J-024 and J-062
this SE-057 would make it the 7th Erieye with probably 1 more coming
There are no questions about one being a write off. I think the confusion is about the remaining two which were brought back to life.you nailed it sir i have rise this question 1 billion times that 049 is dead but PAF fans here do not want to see reality
