My chaiwala says that one j f 17 has been shot down during balakot attack's. This is in addition to the F-16? Or was it a JF17 that was shot down instead? When the Wing Commander comes back, we will know the full story. This was a first kill during balakot attack's. Rest what you see happened later.
