Israeli weapons don't become more lethal because it acts like a school yard bully. American weapons haven't really been tested against a technologically advanced enemy. Here is the effectiveness of American weapons: a Chinese airplane buzzes their advanced surveillance plane, forcing it to land. The Chinese keep the crew and plane for as long as they like before returning them. And this happened at the very beginning of Bush Jr's term. The man who laid waste to Afghanistan and Iraq.Pakistan has a defensive posture in its war strategy. I dont think ever had air superiority fighter in its calculations.
I m not disparaging towards Chinese. They have done very well in last of couple of decades. Chinese dont stage wars. They dont invade countries. So their weapons are not battle tested. Americans and Europeans are always finding new countries to attack every year. So their weapons are more developed, have been tested in real scenarios and thus are more reliable.
Just like Israel. Their law enforcement, crowd control and border management weapons are considered top of the line. You know why? Because Israel has Gaza Strip occupied as a test ground. They attack Gaza every year and thus they have improved their weapons such that police is most of US States have agreements with Israeli defence industry to acquire weapons and training. Without being disparaging to Chinese or Russians, can they match this?
Our perceptions arise from the depth of our own knowledge. If someone isnt a Goldsmith, he cannot ascertain the purity of gold. So he follows the natural human inclination to seek out the widely accepted authority. If there is only one such authority, it can pass muck as gold and everyone will believe them. The Chinese have the depth and confidence to challenge the status quo established by the current schoolyard bullies. In order to truly guage things, we first need to arm ourselves with depth of knowledge.
Well, I am out to change that mind. So wish me luck.PAF has a clear mind
Its f16s, jf17 and keep some mirages flying
They will fit the bill(barely)
It will add 1 new sq every year in jf-17 put inflight refueling in it alot of fuel is consumed at take off immediately refueling after take off can extend the range, block 3 will address alot of issues
The issue in above is bad circumstances ..things beyond PAF control ..f16s were thrawted multiple times by strong lobbying by india in congress..used f16 might come to fruition soon.
I am mad enough to try and make a change. Bang my head against a wall if I must. Because I won't be able to forgive myself if I didn't even try.Appreciate your concern and passion bro, but you are beating a dead horse you, me and all Pakistani members know what we are going to be looking at in the near future which is project Azm simply . Trivial, its not from anywhere just facts and that's the direction bro common.
