    Pakistan F-16 Sale Survives US Senate Dogfight

    WASHINGTON — A measure to block the $700 million sale of eight US F-16 fighter jets to Pakistan was scuttled in the US Senate on Thursday, though US financing for the deal was on hold.

    Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker, whose committee has jurisdiction over foreign arms sales, said he will maintain a hold on the US subsidy for the jets over Pakistan’s “duplicity” in the US-backed war against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

    Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican and one-time presidential candidate, mounted an effort to halt the jet sales, citing its human rights record and intelligence community’s support of the Afghan Taliban.

    Its better to sell them F-16's, if we don't sell them F-16's China will sell them J-10's sucking Pakistan more and more into China's orbit. One of the only reasons we still have influence over Pakistan because of our foreign aid and their use of our military equipment. It would be dumb to do away with one of our sources of influence.

    PAF's plans to retire 190 fighters by 2020 prompt talk of replacements

    The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) plans to retire 190 fighter aircraft by 2020, according to comments attributed to an unnamed senior Pakistani defence official quoted in Pakistan's well-respected Dawn newspaper on 15 March. "We do need to retire 190 planes by 2020. And we are already looking for various options," the official told Dawn

    They have alot of old mirages and sky guards that need to be replaced. The JF-17 is replacing many of those but Pakistan needs more high end fighters. I predict that they will acquire J-10's from China.
