PAF to launch ‘Exercise High Mark’ next week

By Sajjad Malik

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) will launch its countrywide “Exercise High Mark-2010”, from next week to test its professional skills and capabilities.

Defence sources say that this kind of exercise is held after every five years and involves all aerial frontiers and bases from across the country, including the latest missile and firepower of the country.

“The exercise would continue for 40 days and, for the first time, the JF-17 Thunder will also participate in the exercise, in addition to F-16s and other fighter planes,” the sources said, adding that it would be entirely an internal activity and no foreign nation would be invited to participate in it.

It is the main peacetime activity and will cover the entire country from Skardu in the north to the Arabian Sea in the south.

The exercise would also involve the army and naval contingents to show an integrated approach to deal with any eventuality in the time of war.

It would include joint operations with extensive participation from the army and navy, which would further enhance cooperation amongst the three forces.

Is the PAF and PN subordinate to the PA? Why do they report to the PA chief? Do the two branches report to the army?
Its good that pakistan is conducting this exercise. It will give indian Awacs to test its capabilities. See if it can light up birds from across the border.

Emogirl I know Kiyani is Coas. I am talking about the power structure. The report you posted talked about the other chiefs briefing the coas. I just thought that the PA dominates the other forces. yes its the case in all forces where each branch tries to dominate. But in pakistan it may well be that all policy decisions too of the other branches may be taken by the army. Correct me if I am wrong. Just my thought.

COAS visited to PAF HQs just to be briefed on High Mark 2010 because it will involve Army, yes i have to say that Army somewhat Dominates but you are wrong in saying that 'policy decisions too of the other branches may be taken by the army'

Just think back to all the Military coups and dictators Pakistan Has.

That alone will tell you where the power lies in Pakistan.


MMS asked Musharraf, "who is in-charge in Pakistan You or the Army."

Musharraf responded "I am the Army"

I highly doubt one slightly OT post can detract from this thread.

And besides, i was answering a query as to if the Pak-Army dominates other Branches.
And i gave my answer that yes it does.

either way the Army is usually always more powerful than the other branches, in certain kinds of states.
With teh absence of a government to keep the military in check the, the army has built the Power structure around it self

for the first time, the JF-17 Thunder will also participate in the exercise
Is the first squadron of JF-17 ready to take part in this exercise? If I am not wrong it was inducted to PAF just a few months before.

If possible please do post some pictures of JF-17 firing a BVR missile or any LGB during the exercise.

A-5Cs of Black Spiders have been grounded this means JF-17 is operational with all weapons

This will be first exercise for JF-17, I will try my best to get hands on JF-17s firing SD-10s :)
