    ISLAMABAD - Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Tahir Rafique Butt has said that readiness and war preparedness, have attained enhanced significance, in today’s dynamic and rapidly changing environment.
    He was speaking to the inaugural ceremony of Exercise Saffron Bandit 2012-13.
    Air Chief said “PAF is the most potent element of the state defence, and as always, has to maintain its posture, to thwart any threats to the motherland. As all of you are aware, that while the traditional threats have not disappeared, new challenges with much uglier faces have surfaced, therefore besides evolving new and consolidating the established employment concepts, PAF has to keep this non traditional adversary in our sights as well”.
    He said that the exercise is aimed to enhance the war preparedness of PAF combat elements by providing role oriented training in near realistic but controlled environment.
    The environment will be created by integrating and synergizing all available and futuristic capabilities and weapon systems for practicing, evolving and validating current and modern tactical concepts in a near war like environment.
    This time the environment is unique as all of the PAF latest assets would be made to operate under one umbrella. Hence, through this Exercise, PAF would be stepping into the future with all its modern capabilities in action.

    did they get the 50 Junk fighters from China, which they beg. They are short of 2-3 AWACs which is destroyed in terror attack. Drones are doing havoc in their country. Is he really serious when he said they are ready to face challenges.

    First face the Taliban and get FATA, NWFP,(generally the nation) under control then talk of futuristic conflict's, these guys are unable to face the tribes who lack an air force, proper army, navy and sophisticated weapons and the 5% of the GDP as defence budget. This comment is expected from a subordinate arm of the army :taunt1:
