    Pakistan F-16 will be having AIDEWS technology, although they wont have DFRM Technology, Additional F-16s may be due to delay in getting avionics package for JF-17 Thunder Block II, Delay in Induction of J-10, F-16s will remain as a front fighter for pakistan airforce till 2022 Until the Chinese Fifth Generation Fighter Project is ready.

    Awwwww!!! Think I touched a nerve there! Hey I can troll too, its a free world right or did you think you have a copyright on trolling? By the way, we "little" people are paid higher than you average guys in your own country, did you know that? Also, I would like to remind you of a little known story of David and Goliath. You do remember how that goes right, or should I refresh your memory?

    70/80-odd would be enough.

    Ideally we would want 100 F-16 and only 45 of them MLU. But Pakistan shouldn't punch way above it's weight and due to the state of the economy and PAF funds are limited.

    You might be in for a surprise.
    I find it very hard to believe that we didn't get DFRM with those babies.

    J-10 I think has been delayed for sure. Most likely engine trouble.
    JF-17 I can't put my finger on it but it seems to have either slowed or gone off the scopes.

    And as for Chinese 5th gen don't be too sure on a fixed date. Because of the lack of info available to us, we can't predict when it will show up could be as early as 2020 or as late as 2025.

    Only thing you can be sure about stealth aircraft is that they will be behind the schedule. US fighters are also over the budget and lacking performance.

    No F-16 has proved its True potential in many battles. It has been a work horse for Pakistan air force in the past, It will continue to be so until 2020.

    I was talking about stealth aircraft in that paragraph, that is F-22 and F-35. But even F-16C is twice the weight it should be.

    100 F-16s is very much possible, If Pakistan tries to get those 14 F-16 that were embargoed by US sanctions and Another 20 F-16CJ aircraft of US air force once they replace it with F-35s. But i predict a highly possible scenario is getting F-16s from Venezuelan air force. They have around 21 F-16 Fighter Jets, If Pakistan can convince US regarding transfer of those F-16. Total number of F-16s would reach 100. It is a win-win situation for both United States and Pakistan. For United States this move might prevent those F-16s from getting into Iranian hands.
