So PAF admitting it tried to hit military targets, no miltary including US can waste PGM, that too for a target a few KM from the LOC, let alone expensive H4 by PAF.

Yup but IAF needs to Augment numbers and not just wait for Uptopian A-330s, if C-295 based Netra's can give the numbers they should go for it. This can relive the Phalcons in some areas for 24 by 7 duty.

If I am right all variants of Mig 21 M and UM(type 69) are going to be retired later this financial year. So are pilots going to move from Hawk to Bisons with the type conversion training? As noted Mig 21 with its High landing speed is a challenging aircraft to fly.
