WILL PAKISTAN PROCURE AN OFF-THE-SHELF FIGHTER?

The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) may induct an off-the-shelf fighter in the 2020s. This would not a new move or alteration of its plans. In fact, the PAF had sought an off-the-shelf fighter since 2016, especially after it was unable to secure follow-on F-16C/D Block-52+ with Foreign Military Financing (FMF) support from the United States.[1]

In 2016, the PAF reportedly voiced interest in the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) J-10 and United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Su-35.[2] Though not direct confirmation, the PAF’s Chief of Air Staff (CAS) at the time, Air Chief Marshal (ACM) Sohail Aman, said, “Pakistan definitely has to induct new aircraft. We have both Chinese and Russian options.”[3] The goal was to induct a new fighter sometime in the 2020s as an interim solution ahead of the next-generation fighter aircraft (NGFA).[4]

The challenge with an off-the-shelf fighter is that it would be a significant use of resources. Not only would it strain Pakistan, which is in a precarious economic state, and it could force the PAF to divert funds from its long-term endeavours, especially Project Azm (under which the PAF is working on an NGFA).

However, an off-the-shelf fighter for induction in the 2020s was the original plan, especially if the PAF was unable to acquire follow-on new-build F-16s. When the PAF started emphasizing Project Azm, its commitment to an off-the-shelf fighter became unclear. The lack of near-term funding may have pushed the PAF to focus on the long-term (i.e., NGFA) while improving upon the JF-17 so that it stands as a good baseline solution.

However, the PAF is also aware of the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) modernization efforts. In particular, the PAF has not stopped noticing the impact the Dassault Rafale could have on South Asia’s air warfare conditions in the coming years.

For the IAF, the Rafale delivers a series of important capability upgrades, especially a world-class – if not the industry standard – beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM), i.e., Meteor. In response to the Rafale causing a potential imbalance in South Asia’s air warfare dynamics, the current CAS of the PAF, ACM said, “we have to be aware of modern technologies, and if the acquisition of a new fighter fits into our doctrine then we will try to acquire it. The balance has to be maintained.”[5]

Thus, at the highest level of the PAF’s decision-making, the option to acquire an off-the-shelf fighter is still on the table.

The question is, ‘at what cost?’

His only motive is to undemine India, now against pakistan too, even with some nonsense facts.
Recently i read an article about China, which explains how china is controlling the world
1)Loan : Chinese are worlds largest loan provider to the world, around 5% of world GDP belongs to Chinese loan alone. And they are grabbing strategically important centers based on loan.
This method doesn't yield much for Chinese as expected, only ultra poor countries were fall for it.

2) Investment in infra structure. This is to target moderately poor or developing countries. So far this is the best result yielding method for Chinese. Many powerful countries like russia, greese, Pakistan fall for this trap.

3) By bribing influential people : By giving money, by giving paid visit to conference held in China, free accommodation, many luxury gifts etc they will hire some technically sound people.l, to spread propoganda, to spread fear among society etc.
Pravin sawhney is one such personality.

But what he said is true in above tweet. pakistan is building its capabilities with the help of Chinese, probably at a free of cost. Its like how Cuba or East germany built their military during coldwar. And do not undermine his tweet in this regard.

Pakistan is upgrading its Command Control Communication capabilities with Chinese help.
China is giving Pak access to real time satellite data

Being a small country Pakistan can quickly move troops between crisis points depending on where India is poised to make a move

Improved capabilities will help Pakistan negate India's traditional advantage of numbers.


This is as important as it can get. Pakistan is learning to fight smarter and within its means.

Congress and other political parties never made those statements inside the Parliament of India as that becomes a record and for speaking lies in the Parliament they can be taken to task and punished. Your MP Ayaz spoke inside your parliament on record. Please understand the difference between the two.
militaries are there to fight. they don't care about politicians and their statement. what we did on feb 27 is a lesson. it's almost 2 years since our strikes and still no action from iaf. tell them that one day, they have to face paf. it's time to grow up.

china and pakistan both consider india as enemy. there is so much cooperation. everyday is a great day. everyday you learn something and you apply it on your homegrown projects. we have realized what we are facing. it's better to prepare in advance. cooperation is necessary.
