ISLAMABAD – The Pakistan Air Force which has always been equipped with US fighters is now in consultation with an eye to buying the latest Russian aircraft. It has already signed deals on engineering procurement and Russian engines for its joint fighter produced with China, the JF-17.

“It is no secret that the US has made it harder for Pakistan to buy its F-16s and military aid has been drastically cut in the past two years.

Pakistan has therefore had to look to Turkey and Jordan for procuring used F-16s which are not quite the standard required to counter-balance the Indian Air Force.”

The RUSI said that Pakistan’s shift comes in view of the almost monthly amendments and legislation on Capitol Hill in Washington against military sales to Pakistan which has prompted Islamabad to look elsewhere.

“The Russians have stepped into the gap, providing military attack helicopters – a historic first, given Pakistani reliance on American aircraft for six decades. And the embrace is widening. Last year saw the first military drills between the Pakistani and Russian militaries.


This was followed last week by the country’s special forces exercising in the Caucasus with Russia. The drills covered mountain warfare, countering urban terrorism and engaging in broader land warfare,” said the report.

It said that Kremlin is uneasy about Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s deep embrace of the US and closer military ties with Washington. And, as the Indians now buy US and French fighters, Russia too is looking elsewhere, including Moscow’s participation in the alliance with China and Pakistan over rising tensions in Afghanistan and Central Asia, it said.

How can a country of 200 million be so pathetic? I would have had committed suicide by now if I were a Porky.

After a decade long drama of J-10B, Typhoon, Rafale then Su-35 this is what they came up with. Believe it or not, according to Pork chops, Ukraine offered to mass produce An-225 (world's largest airlifter) in Pakhanaland.

@LETHALFORCE Times of Islamabad is the same prestigious organization according to which Raheel Sharif was the number one general, ISI is the number one spy agency and Islamabad is the most beautiful capital in the world.

What will Pakistan pay Russia with??

Perhaps they are going lend their impressive paint job skills in return for a 5th Gen fighter.
The Porkis can't even afford a first generation fighter and they're eyeing a 5th gen one? Lol! A 5th gen Russian fighter will cost upwards of $100 million a pop, ie Rs 1200 crores PKR!! One squadron will cost a whopping Rs 21,000 crores PKR. Add life cycle costs, infrastructure, training, weapons etc and it would touch a mind boggling Rs 30,000 - 40,000 crores PKR just for one squadron!!!!

Saalon ko khaane ki liye paise nahin and they want 5th gen fighters? Lol! If wishes were horses, beggars would ride!
