Pakistan on Saturday received three new F-16 aircrafts from the US as part of 18 such fighter jets scheduled to reach the country by December.

The jets landed at the Shahbaz Airbase of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in southwestern Jacobabad city, media reports said.

It was initially reported that five F-16s will reach Pakistan in this consignment but only three arrived Saturday.

Senior officials of PAF were present at the airbase on the arrival of these aircraft.

Three other aircraft reached Pakistan in June as part of the consignment, while the remaining would be handed over by the end of December. Pakistani pilots were trained by the US Air Force prior to the handing over and they flew the aircraft in the Pakistani airspace.

A PAF spokesman said: 'Air Chief Marshal Rao Qamar Suleman has congratulated the Pakistani nation on enhanced strength of its fighter jets' fleet.'

Sources said the arrival of these five F-16 jets was scheduled for September 2010 but was delayed due to floods in August and September. The Shahbaz Airbase was partially inundated during the floods that wreaked havoc across Pakistan, leaving over 1,800 dead and over 20 million homeless.

The government of former Pakistan president Gen. (Retd.) Pervez Musharraf had struck a deal with the US for the purchase of 24 refurbished F-16 aircrafts to enhance air warfare capacity of the country. The new government, after taking charge in 2008, decided to buy 18 additional new block-52 fighter jets.

Manure proves his own ignorance, yet again

Pakistan already has 36 J-10s. The extra F-16s from the U.S. will be made available to Chinese engineers to see if there's anything useful to copy.

From Serbia:

The J-10 was presented to Serbian MoD delegation headed by defence minister Dragan Šutanovac, who said:

    We saw the Chinese jet J-10 as one of the top planes in the world. China has thus proved that it is capable of manufacturing the most sophisticated military equipment in the world that can be used in Serbia but also to offer it to other countries which have traditionally bought weapons from Serbia. (wiki).

We all know that you're a pathetic ignoramus, manure. No need to keep stating the obvious.

BTW, found a friend yet?

Variation, Mr. manoj...  Variations!  which is why you've selected to settled for something else rather than the sloppy Shilpa Shetty's you have in your own world...


Myanmar, China's ally opted for Mig than Chinese jets
.
But, just like Indonesia which opted for the Su-30, Myanmar too likely can't afford the maintenance and up keeping part of it and contracted that part of the job to Chinese firms.

Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?
