Looking at events at Hindsight Pakis had a plan for airstrikes and that plan failed. Give the LY 80 was their most recent it was probably part of such a plan which failed hence the pretty desperate attempt on 27 Feb morning.
The events of the 2 days spooked them to shut down airspace for4 months, PIA would not be normally flying its Lahore Karachi and Karachi Isloo flights to first go to Afgan Border hug it and then come back. Hell on flight radar some off the Lahore to Islamabad flights went to the Afghan border. There were also some unusually high number of flights to from Pakistan to China, indicating Chinese personnel working on Cpec were being evacuated

Guys, all I can say is IAF has wargamed and planned how to take out both SPADA and LY-80 sites, and they have ample tools at their disposal to do so.

Reg comments on the thread about lack of IAF bases in the area;

Pathankot is barely 100 miles away from Nowshera. Our AEW had detected PAF take off and if I recall we had a 15 minute early warning.

We had 2 mirages already loitering over the area, 2 MiG-21s from ORP and another 2 Su-30s operating from Sirsa (450 km away).

So both Pathankot and Adampur units could not engage PAF on the day.

Looking at the stall the PAF is a complete H&D organization, what an amount of money which goes in there along with fake Su 30 kill. What they did on 27 Feb was an unsuccessful gorilla raid and they forming themselves like non state actors

What a bunch of unprofessional jokers. Unfortunately, the IAFs tendency to downplay its own efforts allows them such PR victories. Any other AF in the world would have given a spate of interviews suitably sanitized calling the PAFs account into disrepute. IAF went and flew an Avenger formation on its raising day, and that too without much ado, so 9 out of 10 people missed its significance.

An area that needs to be improved holistically. Our armed forces dont consider them as important at all ! They are missing the fact that information warfare itself can bring a country down !
