PAKISTAN AIR FORCE (PAF)ONE OF THE BEST AIR FORCES IN THE WORLDSAAD ZAMAN KHAN Pakistan Air Force (PAF) is the air arm of the Pakistan Armed Forces and is primarily tasked with the aerial defence of Pakistan with a secondary role to provide air support to the Pakistan Army and the Pakistan Navy. The PAF also has a tertiary role to provide strategic air transport and logistics capability to Pakistan. The PAF employs 65,000 full-time personnel (including approximately 3,000 pilots) and operates approximately 400 combat aircraft alongside various transport and training aircraft. Although PAF has a bit less quantity of combat aircraft but the quality is much much higher then any Air forces in the world. During the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 the PAF was out-numbered 5:1 against the Indian Air Force and, initially, both sides claimed to have downed around 100 aircraft of the opposition during the 23 day war. The PAF fleet at the time consisted of 12 F-104 Starfighters, some 120 F-86 Sabres and around 20 B-57 Canberra bombers.[9] The Indian claim of 100 PAF aircraft downed was proven to be highly exaggerated when 86 F-86 Sabres, 10 F-104 Starfighters and 20 B-57 Canberra bombers were flown in a parade after the war. The InAF is later believed to have admitted the loss of at least 75 aircraft, while the PAF admitted to losing 19 aircraft. The PAF's claim was confirmed by the U.S. Military Assistance Advisory Group. The PAF also claims to have had complete air superiority over the battle area from the second day of operations [10] and it is believed that the Indian Army would agree.[11] Close air support to the Pakistan Army was unexpectedly effective and the PAF is widely considered to have single-handedly neutralised the large difference in military strength of India and Pakistan.[10] Well Pakistan Air force (PAF) is developing day by day by the grace of ALMIGHTY ALLAH! The JF-17 Thunder also designated Chengdu FC-1 Xiaolong (English: Fierce Dragon; Chinese: 枭龙; pinyin: Xiāo Lóng), is a modern light-weight multi-role combat aircraft. The Pakistani designation JF-17 and Chinese designation FC-1 stand for "Joint Fighter" and "Fighter China" respectively. The aircraft was developed jointly by the Chengdu Aircraft Industries Corporation (CAC) of China, the Pakistan Air Force and the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC). The aircraft is a small, light-weight fighter powered by a single engine. It has been developed to meet the requirements of the Pakistan Air Force and for export to other developing nations. It was designed to be a low-cost solution for replacing large fleets of obsolete types and an alternative to more expensive Western fighter aircraft. The maiden test flight of the first prototype took place during 2003 in China, later test flights of a more advanced version taking place in 2006. Deliveries to the Pakistan Air Force for further flight testing and evaluation began in 2007, the aircraft's first aerial display also taking place that year in Islamabad, Pakistan. The Pakistan Air Force officially inducted its first JF-17 squadron on 18th February 2010.
