    A special feature posted on the PAF Falcons web site provides a fascinating transcript of a one-on-one interview with an anonymous, although apparently very senior, Pakistani Air Force F-16 pilot. It reminds me of YouTube Terry's infamous indiscretions.

    The Pakistani pilot manages to embarrass the pride of the Royal Air Force, candidly describe Israeli air-to-air prowess and explain how the US keeps the F-16 Block 52's secrets away from the Pakistanis and -- by extension -- the Chinese.


    On the RAF Typhoon:


    On the Israelis:

    On US concerns about the Chinese:

    On US export control practices:

    According to other forums the RAF typhoon story is BS. Apparently when PAF & RAF took part in the excercise, the RAF didn't bring any typhoons, they only used their tornadoes!

    Anything coming out of the PAF, PA or PN and not corrobated by independant sources is to be polite BS. There 100s of stories like this "leaked" out by the ISPR and the main idea is to "increase morale and prestige" of armed forces. The fact is that if even half of this was true, it would be news well publicized and corroborated by other news outlets.
