I prefer the S-92 super hawkAW-101 comes close to Mi-17 in some specs. This makes it a medium lift helicopter for the Navy just like Mi-17 is for the Army, however it has three engines.
It's a good helo, but in terms of reliability the S-92 is my preference.How do you rate this chopper sir? any guess about fly away cost of a single unit?
Since we are in the process of getting TPS-77MRR and F-16V from LM, is there any possibility of getting MH-60 Seahawk also?I prefer the S-92 super hawk

Off the topic. My apology..Sir, You are entitled to your opinion.
Btw the EFT was also discussed in this meeting:
Italian Secretary General of Defence visits Air HQ
The used EFT's were T1, but the idea was to upgrade them to T3b, and then induct them. The deal was used + new. Approx 36 all in.Off the topic. My apology..
If Pakistan goes for the used Italian, Spanish and Austrian used EFT and upgrade them with the help of Italian and Spanish aero industries.
It will give PAF a handsome number of lethal jets. And also no sanction can disturb in future because KSA, Kuwait ,Qatar, Oman will operate these jets , so spares would not be a problem in case of war.
Later Pakistan can also order new tranche 3b in future in small batches like the Mirages.
If these purchases could be made we can quickly retired legacy Mirages. Which are now known as our pilot killer. Mirage Rebuild Factory can be converted to EFT overhaul and upgrade facility. Where we can offer our maintenance services to our Gulf friends. It will be a win win situation for Pakistan. And also for the jet supplying countries. Because they dont have any buyer from last many years for these used jets. We have to give them this message if we leave this deal then your jets will end their life without any more flights.

Sir it add a great fire power to our air force, and it will be definite answer to indian rafale jets even better than french jets. We can induct these used jets in a short period and our pilots will got the expertise on these jets before indian get their hand on french rafale jets Because in next few years when india was getting its last jets we almost use too on these used EFT.thanksThe used EFT's were T1, but the idea was to upgrade them to T3b, and then induct them.

Then why PAF not bought these EFT, when it was available in different air forces on affordable price. PAF always run after the F16. I know F16 is good jet. But the EFT is a beast, the EFT is only behind the Fifth gen jets. If i am not wrong. ThanksAbsolutely! That is why used ones were being explored.
