JF-17 Squadrons might have to bear the burden of strike with Mirage squadrons .Will have to see which JF-17 squadrons will be used for strike and which ones for AD. No comfortable SOW options with F-16.
Pakistan forces have learnt a lesson, to be ready all the time with the best man and weaponry to negate Indian aggression in any form. PAF is the punch part of the aggressive defence strategy. India is shivering with the pangs of haplessness against Pakistan. Had India a minute chance of impunity from the severe response from Pakistan, it would have gone mad of attacking Pakistan by now. What is stopping it is the surety of the severest retaliation from Pakistan strike back. Pakistan has prepared and practised all possible offensive strike options. 27th Feb response was just a token or sample of what Pakistan prepared for Indians. The secretive and enigmatic strategy is to aim to keep India at bay guessing what is there with no clue resulting in with no chance of countering it.
