Re: Pakistan Armed Forces: News & Discussion Thread

F16 with Amraam is a dangerous platform. And if we are win wars we would take most take most of enemy aircraft on the ground. Unless we reach a stage where we can knock out power oil infrastructure and freely are able to attack the Pakistan army with PAF grounded and much of the PM sunk we can't win...

Re: Pakistan Armed Forces: News & Discussion Thread

So the working assumption is max of 195 BVR equipped aircraft, but likely lower somewhere between 120-150? Doubt any version of the block 1 and block 2 of JF 17 has BVR, only their 75 F-16's have BVR. Pakis were even claim F-7 PG's were BVR only later admitted Grifo 7 radar can do only WVR engaments.

There is 1 video of a BVR test, but does not show the missile being launched from the Aircraft. Just a missile hitting a target. The claim videos state that a slow speed target was intercepted i...
