    No doubt in this brother

    without JFT.

    how could we replace our 300+ fleet of 40 years old fighters.

    JFT is the best thing happened to PAF in the past 60 years...

    provide a source most sources say only about 60 planes operable by Pakistan.
    for f-16's need US permission.

    India is adding squadrons many squadrons in Pakistan lack warplanes.
    18-20 planes per squadron.

    Agreed.

    PAF is a defensive force.bounded by a limited budget
    but still has a impressive kill history against USSR and Israel as well

    Look at the date on that article. 2010. That was 2 years ago, so you're not giving me anything new.

    As if i dnt know.the reason i said date is posted.and if you want link than extract it from janes.

    Though this news confirms that the order for f-16 was seperate.
    negotiations must be disturbed with the turmoil.bt negotiation does take time

    as i told you before expect deal to be signed around 2015-16.when the JFT is mature enough and we already have JFT II in service

    And as I also told you before, come back and talk when such a deal actually happens! As of now, it's just a bunch of horsepukey and day dreaming. So we know there was an interest expressed 2 years ago, nothing more since than. If you want to take mere 'expression of interest' as a bar to gloat over weapons purchases, than the HAL Dhruv probably wipes the slate clean with Malaysia, Indonesia, Bolivia, Turkey, Israel, and a whole list of South American and African countries expressing interest to buy the Dhruv. But, until the dotted line is signed, such 'expressions of interest' mean diddlysquat.

    Don't entertain him. He lives in a little dreamworld, not reality. The VVS could have wiped out the entire PAF in a heartbeat if that was their intended goal. The truth is that the VVS in Afghanistan was entirely built up for ground strikes, with their Floggers and Su-25 airplanes which didn't even have any radars in them. The Pakistanis didn't even have the slightest BVR capability at that time, or even an answer to India's Mig-25s as late as the late 1990s; so for them to delude themselves into thinking that they took on the VVS is a cruel joke upon themselves. Shooting down a bunch of stray radar-less and totally blind air-to-ground aircraft is what the Pakistanis consider their greatest accomplishment. :rolleyes:
