So I was just looking at PAF Shahbaz using regular google maps. Don't know when the images were updated (says 2021). But you see 55+ HAS and another 6-8 being constructed. Surprisingly no fighters on the flight lines. Just 2 C-130s and AW-139 on the apron.

Other than 5 sqn , is 19 sqn also deployed at Shahbaz or Bholari? Any other Mirage sqns?

55+ HAS just for 1 sqn? hmm

These images are edited by google for security reasons, but you can easily make out 71 HAS.

This is not looking good for the naysayers. Now wait for their lame excuses

Makes Shahbaz larger than Rafiqui or Mushaf that have historically hosted 2 fighter wings each.

Thanks. How many fighter squadrons does PAF have currently? It should be 20-25 but I would like to know the exact number.

I stand corrected. Usually 1 fighter wing per base but can have more than 3 sqns. But usually 2-3 sqn.
