    JACOBABAD: Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Rao Qamar Suleman has said that the Pakistan Air Force can effectively counter India’s new war doctrine.

    Talking to the media here at the Shahbaz Air Base, the air chief said PAF has modified its plan within the existing infrastructure in view of the new war doctrine of India. The Indian Air Force, he said, has been given a very crucial and critical role in India’s ‘Cold Start’ doctrine.

    Suleman told the media that the Shahbaz Air Base was totally in the control of the Pakistan Air Force and existing hardware procured and being acquired by the PAF was sufficient to fulfill its requirements. “We are in the process of consolidating the hardware procured so far,” the air chief said.

    To a question about the capability of US F-16 Block 52 aircraft, he rejected the impression that the aircraft could not target or intercept US aircraft if they violated the country’s airspace. “There is nothing which can prevent us from targeting or intercepting US fighter planes,” he said. Suleman maintained that PAF could intercept or target US planes, if required, but at the same time he said they did not wish for such a situation to arise.

    Sure you can..try that is. But most likely you lot will end up turning tail and parking your junk tin cans in the far west or fleeing to China.

    It is good for them to keep the morale up!

    One requires fantasising to give a feel good feeling to the rank and file!

    So what we/reporter were expecting him to say ...we're doomed after Indian MMRCA purchase and F-16's (for which we paid) are useless against USAF ..

    PAF Chief has good sense of humor.

    Or maybe he is right. They can target US fighters, if they are able to detect them! :laugh:
