When I started this thread, it was a possibility, Alhumdullilah today it has become a reality.

Kindly dont ask how many, but it is quite a decent number.
Alhumdullilah

New Sqdn.
Hopefully more are on the way to complete the Sqdn"s" as you let us know before. *-^

As of now, a lot less than this.
In my naive opinion quantity matters but not that much at the moment, it will/can be built up gradually. The main point was to get pass that Technology Barrier i.e AESA, C7 (hopefully (:-) ) etc, saying make USA release us this stuff. which she did. So this in itself is a great milestone.

^that...if Block 70/72 is being released to Pak along with C7...this means an improvement in the relationship which had been going sour in the past. The improvement in relationship is what matters...
...the numbers can go up(more can be acquired) provided the relationship is at that level.

Personally I can't wait when all these goodies are made public...F16 Block 70/72, JF17 Block III(with PL15?), J10C(P according to @Khafee bcuz of some Pak specific changes). In my personal opinion...these will provide the much needed capability boost for PAF to keep IAF at bay(taking into account their Rafael and Meteor capability)...
...and give Pak some breathing room...up until Azm NGF is ready.

I hope new one will get name,, Spartas,,
Not a fan of names adopted from other far away cultures. We should stick with our Muslim/Pakistani heritage...
...but not a huge deal bcuz at the end of the day it's just a name...I'm just listing my preference.

does that means PAF is opting out of J-10's and others because normally that's the way US insists when giving their hardware
