we (China) have multiple-potential deals with Pakistan as of now, which is somewhat surpassing Turkey's offers because we are offering Transfer of Technology to them so they can license build. I would not consider the US to be "upset" as more of a arms-pusher. The US lost their market in Pakistan a while ago, only doing mostly major 2nd hand deals.
Why Pakistan does not go for Z-10 since it comes with ToT?

not everything is TOT, I just meant a majority of it. Pakistan said Z-10 was good, but some said it was underpowered, though some sources claim Pakistan had a potential of increasing their Z-10 order to 20, I should make a thread explaining what we have offered Pakistan.

Please make a new thread, and specifically mention it's capabilities as well as it's ammo package.

And obviously, what was offered to Pakistan.

Thank You

I believe for AH-1Z, it is because Pakistan has experience operating the older AH-1s. but for the Apaches no, and I do not think they will be able to acquire them because India will have 39 Apache-Guardian on order with a potential ordering 22
What being rumored around is that T-129 not only appeared superior in tests, specially high altitude flying.... but also for various strategic and trade reasons.
for example: we are selling Super Mushaq trainers to Turkey and this will lead other nations to follow.
We also hope to develop co-operation in defense sector research and production, in process of getting close.
Who knows, one day we end up selling jF-17 to Turkey.

good buy for Pakistan, but are you guys still buying the AH-1Z Vipers or is the T-129 taking it's place?
AH-1Z is still on the cards but dependent upon political scenario between US and Pakistan.

Does pakistan operate Apaches? Why not going after them instead of ATAK?
No AH-64 in PAA inventory.

Its wise to have diverse suppliers for defence needs, although the LongBow radar/ MmW radar has its own plus points.
