Pakistan also buying TB 2 MALE drones as my friend broke that news few days ago
TB 2 male Drones? Are you trying to say that Pakistan is buying Bayraktar TB2 Drones from Turkey? TB-2 Bayraktar is a very good and capable drone.

They were already planes from 2019 to buy them
Good for your country Pakistan. TB-2 is a very good and effective drone and has proven itself in many conflicts, Turks are very good in the field of Drones and Bayraktar TB2 Drone has been Exported to more than 6 Countries.

Pakistan also reportedly examined acquiring the Russian Su-35 Flanker-E, potentially to help better cover naval operations in the Arabian Sea.

When speculation first arose of a Pakistani J-10C purchase in early 2021, it was linked with one of the Pakistan Air Force squadrons based in Karachi.

Any chance Su-75 is also on table. It would be a good alternative for Pakistan.

Any idea what is the weapons package Pakistan will be looking for.
Su-35 Flanker-E appears to be a sound choice as Pakistan strategy towards naval operation is area/sea denial.
Wouldn't these jets serve better under Pakistan Navy's aerial arm?
