Pakistan Air Force Takes Delivery of 3 Saab 2000 Aircraft
RADAR EQUIPMENT QTY.3 packages - CIVIL A/C QTY. 30 /60 packages, each package weighs 1 million ton.
Can we assume radar equipment is AESA+, and this time Pakistan is going to do the AWACS assembling locally.
It will BE customized AWACS.

Pakistan originally bought 3 from SAAB, than terrorists damaged 2, but PAC engineers claim to have both recovered /repaired /tested /certified locally.
Believing those high level officials, 3 are already in operation.

we already had 6 Erieye... wow, i wasn't aware of it.
I thought the 3 on order are part of this current package... so my count was only limited to 6 Erieye.

No plan to get the KJ-2000? That will give Pakistan a sharp edge in the region IMO.
Once it matures, then maybe, for now no. The Erieye legacy aircrafts may see an upgrade to the "ER" specs.

A ZDK-03, is undergoing upgrades and overhaul in China as we speak.
