Leaves us with Flankers and JH-7(tailored for us?)In the other forum, Bilal Khan-Quwa reporting that in 70s, PAF initiated program to evaluate A-7 for both CAS and deep strike. but in 1976 US put brakes on the possible sale after reports on Pakistan actively pursuing nuclear weapons. We also evaluated Jags but cost factor turned us to Chinese A-5s.
The need for an attack fighter returned after 27/2, and situation is very much same as we are again searching suitable platform.Only difference is no western country would enter in a deal with us for attack platform because of our nuclear posture.
the only source will again be China ...so grab what they are offering without wasting more time in searching and dreaming.
