    Do you know how this platform performed in last Surprise for India? Let's not just carried away being unaware of situation. In my opinion, addition as such is firstly not going to cost us much & secondly, will add more punch while thirdly serving the concern of being short in numbers. It is like adding more punch to the existing fleet.

    And by the way, I am seeing two way traffic in this regard. @Khafee

    Yes. Need them for spares as spares don't come cheap from Dassault.

    At one end we are trying to retire Mirage V fleet, on the other we are getting used ones from the third party. Indeed, Facepalm. I guess PAF has not yet integrated the JF-17 into nuclear and naval strike role. PS, anything short of Mirage-2000 is a waste of resources on so many levels.

    Most of them will be used as spares. Mirage V may not be the cutting edge technology but they add good capability and numbers to PAF and numbers are important till we have our own aircraft to fill the gap.

    It is because Pakistan has not inducted enough JF-17s to date that PAF is unable to phase out Mirages any time sooner.

    Production of 100 JF-17 Thunders in 12-years is too slow.
