Wouldnt this be the same case for PAF fighters when S400 arrives
Somewhat, except PAF has had a defensive posture since the 1990s so battle is likely to be over Pak skies rather than Indian skies. S-400 and other SAM systems that India has / will have essentially makes Mirage strike missions very dangerous and increasingly obsolete.

In Kashmir, LRSAMs like S-400s will not have proper coverage as the mountains are highly obstructive. That is an oversimplification as mountains can also be used to create SAM traps, but the situation is less in a favor of SAMs generally than in the flat plains / deserts. So, if there is a war over Kashmir, it will be a little bit of a mixed bag.

Nevertheless, S-400s are a formidable weapon system and will negatively impact PAF. How decisive this will be is open to debate with no fixed answers.

One more question , So these EW planes like PAF Flacon DA-20 and now jamming pods used on FA-18 and J-15 growlers , Do these jammers jam just communication radars or these can jamm complete SAM systems if in range ??

Lets remember Nishan-e-Haider recipient shaheed Rashid Minhas in our prayers today. He was martyred on 20 Aug 1971.

Update on Pakistan: "MaxxPro MRAP"

Pakistan Ministry of Defense to soon sign a deal with US Department of State for a FMS of 40 MaxxPro MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) Dash DXM vehicles.

The MaxxPro Dash DXM has improved DXM suspension, EFP (explosively formed penetrator) protection, Frag kit 6 US protection against EFPs and IEDs.
It has a V-shaped hull to deflect blasts and enhanced ballistic protection.
It also has a remote weapon station (allowing offensive capabilities without putting occupants in danger) as well as NBC (nuclear/biological/chemical protection. The MaxxPro Dash DXM MRAP Vehicle is being bought from the US Military’s surplus stock from Afghanistan.

I always wondered why the Hamza MRAP from the Cavalier group was not acquired. I am certainly no expert but it looks very capable and it would help to stimulate our own defense industry. Its really disappointing why our military doesnt try to work more with our private industry instead of buying from foreign vendors. I am sure there is some palm greasing going on but its just reducing funds for the military in the long run.
