If Pakistan pays hard cash, it can ask LM for an offset package involving a LM F-16/C-130 service and upgrade center in Pakistan. That way, not only would we upgrade the F-16s at home, but we'd get LM to invest $100 m or so in Aviation City. OTOH it'd also give the Americans a deep insight of the PAF F-16 fleet and, potentially, our aviation development efforts. But getting the F-16 Block-72 at this point, especially with our economy, I guess some access along those lines will probably be asked of us.Why not PAC or TAI?

MK US wants a deal own its term its common tactics what they are using. They will back to table very soon beacuse next time when they will negotiate with Talibs they will be in further weak position. It's good time to have deal and with little being tough they might get something more. Just walk away won't help them eitherHi,
The situation is extremely un-predictable at this moment---.
5 years ago---pakistan was in a position to be in total control of the region---it chose to stay ordinary rather than become extra ordinary---.
Couple of three months ago---it still got a life line from the emirates---and yet it failed again---.
So---getting the F16's---next to impossible now---even getting the SU35's next to impossible---.
The only thing left is some old and beat up Mirage 3 / 5---some JH7A's and the J10C's---.
Take your pick boys---.
He will make a deal trust me but he wants more from Talibs at this point its ploy he is playing. If US lost this moment and kept fighting yr or two they will be in more bad shape on the table talk reason limited troops too many enemies along incompitant Afgan Army with corrupt Afghan leadership.On the positive side more then Pakistan it's Trump who wants this deal badly even when most of his military advisors are against pullout from Afghanistan. He has to broker a deal before next year elections. This deal is more important now as nothing positive came out of North Korea.
Pentagon is coming after this.
Current Administration only deals in Hard Cash. They don’t believe in pending payments. Yes small incremental payments will be released like the one we saw of 125Mil. But we are seeing any jump in a huge number. Cobras are the priority No 1along with the Third Party Transfer permission for Our T-129 Engines.@Khafee they are visiting after long time don't they? What to expect F15, F16, AH1z more C130 s,?? let's see if yanks know we looking twin engine plane too may offer a twin engine too let's hope I still have to say if Pak has money like 9 billion CSF along more Trump administration can offer F15X Rafale has no match with F15 with AESA amazing weapon system
No country pays in full in one go for such large defense deals. Payments are made in tranches.Current Administration only deals in Hard Cash. They don’t believe in pending payments. Yes small incremental payments will be released like the one we saw of 125Mil. But we are seeing any jump in a huge number. Cobras are the priority No 1along with the Third Party Transfer permission for Our T-129 Engines.
