Pakistan Unveils Light Attack Super Mushak Turboprop Aircraft
@Khafee

Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) on Monday unveiled the attack version of Super Mushak turboprop aircraft.

The PAC-manufactured aircraft was displayed equipped with anti-tank missiles. The Buraq laser guided missiles, meant for attack drones and light aircraft will also be installed on this aircraft.

The targeting capacity has further been improved in this plane, an official release said.

The light air support aircraft is to be used in operations against terrorists who lack air defence systems.

The armed Super Mushak will compete against the likes of Embraer-Sierra Nevada Corp’s Super Tucano aircraft which has been proven very successful in Afghanistan.

Seriously under-powered, best to retire it.

Pakistan’s Army VT-4 Deal with China

Pakistan will be acquiring 300 VT-4 from Norinco China 🇨🇳. The delivery will be done in 2 stages/Phases.

a) Phase 1: 176 VT-4 MBT.
b) Phase 2: 124 VT-4 MBT.

Pakistan have paid 860 Million USD for initial batch of 176 MBTs.
Payment of remaining 124 MBTs Will be done later.

Sources confirm that Pakistan’s VT-4 version will be the most capable version compared to Thailand’s & Nigerian Versions. The distinguished features are as follows:

1. Pakistan’s VT-4s will be equipped with 1500 HP Engine rather than standard 1300 HP Engine. Since Pakistan showed reservations with 1300 HP Engine during Evaluation.

2. The Explosive Reactive Armor or ERA on Pakistan’s VT-4s will be “FY-4”. The Standard Version VT-4s has “FY-2”. FY-4 ERA is licensed version of “Relikt ERA”. For the matter of fact Relikt is world’s most capable & advanced ERA.

3. Pakistan’s VT-4s will have better mobility (More powerful Engine 1500 HP). Fire Power, Fire Control System & Optronics of Pakistan’s VT-4s are believed to be superior than all other existing variants.

Alkhalid tank project will continue alongside induction of VT 4 which Pakistan 🇵🇰 is acquiring off the shelf. However HIT will possess ability to maintain overhaul and modify tanks if necessary.

VT-4 will be a great addition to Pakistan Army after the recent induction of AK-1. Alhumdulillah.

Please Note down that officially VT-4 hasn't been inducted as of yet. As of now 2-3 VT-4s are in Pakistan. Deliveries from China will start soon Inshallah

Some Twitter accounts are saying that 44 tanks are to be delivered by Sep-Oct 2020
Delivery schedules can go up or down, doesn't matter. What matters is, ultimately how many are ordered, and how fast they are deployed. Which is Alhumdulliah good.
