    Have learned from highly reliable sources that at the request of the USAF, a big exercise is due to take place in Pakistan under the designation Falcon Talon.

    @Windjammer any idea which air assets will be participating from both sides? We need to be extremely cautious about espionage, especially ELINT against Thunder and Chinese weapons.

    The Americans were absolutely adamant, and actually steaming to see the Chinese here for the 6th time. And it is a high profile exercise too so no doubt our neighbours will be cheesed off.

    Will JF-17 participate? I think it would be a great PR and learning curve if JF-17 is pitched against the best US offers to the rest of the world i.e the F-16s and the F-18s.

    I think this is the closest opportunity to assess the viability of Chinese equipment (JF17, AWACs, SAMs etc) by USAF thats why they are interested.

    And allow them to assess its emitted signals in combat setting? No need! We can get as much practice as we want with the Arab countries.

    No Airforce is dumb enough to use the actual frequencies of the radars. By the way it works both ways.

    They can mouth off all they want, the fact is USAF is always very keen to test it's best with the PAF, apart from our F-16s, they even tested the F-22 against our humble F-7.

    Pak-China alliance and others more like this are their worst nightmare. They way Pakistan and IK has given them a cold shoulder after Trumps rhetorical tweets has opened their eyes to a new reality, the reality of rising China.
