Pakistan exploring beyond visual range missiles, fighter jets
http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_407123,00050002....

Pakistan is looking for new foreign supplies of advanced weaponry including beyond-visual range missiles as also fighter aircraft to address "the changing balance of power tilting dangerously in India's favour," its Air Force chief has said.

A top near-term priority is the acquisition of beyond-visual-range air-to-air missiles (BVRAAMS), Pakistan Air Force Chief of Staff Air Chief Marshal Kaleem Saadat said in an interview to the latest issue of Jane's Defence Weekly.


The service has also named acquisition of new fighters with "F-16 and above capability" as another primary need. The PAF is currently exploring options including F-16s repeatedly requested from Washington, Mirage 2000-9s similar to those bought by the UAE and Gripens.

Islamabad is also exploring options to acquire used F-16s from Belgium or the Netherlands or even the US.


Just move on right along. Nothing here to see...
