    As i stated earlier PAF doesn't issue pictures with such weapons. We have Israeli weapons and pods in inventory which we buy regularly, but no one would issue their pictures. Remember that this is a military matter not a picnic that every snap has to be posted. If PAF issues pictures of weapons we have secretly bought, it will kick start a buying spree from India.

    Actually, it won't. Either way IAF is already on a buying spree.

    We have been ordering BVR weapons left, right and center. I think we have been signing deals every few years for new BVR weapons.

    The previous decade we signed deals for 40 AA-12 meant to go on Mig-29K and then another deal for 500 of them, I guess, for Mig-29UPG. Then we are in the process of signing a deal for AA-10. This is not counting the 2000 AA-12s and 4000 AA-11s bought the decade before that. We recently signed a 490 missile deal with MBDA for Mirage-2000. Then we are in the process of signing the Derby deal for LCA and that's followed by the ASRAAM deal for Jaguars. Not to mention the 20 Derbys bought for Sea Harrier. That's 7 deals that's known today. Not counting the deals for Super MKI and FGFA that are yet to be signed this decade, not to mention Meteors and more MICAs for Rafale. Then there's the expected Astra orders of both blocks.

    I don't know the "real" reason, but forcing IAF on a buying spree is not the reason. It doesn't even make sense to buy more missiles and aircraft than what's already planned as of today.

    I am sure you remember that the Indian govt and the military are promoting the Chinese bogey for the massive arms spending, not Pakistan. It would be a big deal if the Chinese are running around with Meteors than if PAF is caught with Darters.

    Exelis electronic countermeasures pod certified for installation on Pakistani F-16s
    September 30, 2014 (by Carolyn Camp) - Exelis has received official certification for its AN/ALQ-211(V)9 Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare System (AIDEWS) to fly on board Pakistani F-16s.

    [iframe style="border: 0px currentColor; vertical-align: bottom;" id="google_ads_iframe_/120940664/F-16_News_Article_MR_0" height="250" marginHeight="0" src="javascript:"[/iframe]
    The AIDEWS pod is currently the only digital radio frequency memory-based electronic warfare (EW) pod certified to F-16 basic aircraft limits, including requirements for lightning protection.

    The ALQ-211(V)9 is an external pod variant of the Exelis ALQ-211 family of electronic self-protection systems. After completing the U.S. Air Force Seek Eagle process for aircraft stores certification, the system is now cleared for deployment with F-16A/B block 15 aircraft procured through the Peace Drive 2 Foreign Military Sales program. This certification can be readily extended to F-16 Blocks 25-52, both domestic and international.

    To achieve certification, the Exelis team defined, flew and evaluated a series of compatibility flight profile (CFP) missions designed to clear the pod to the F-16’s basic limits. Two stores configurations were evaluated to capture current and future pod configuration requirements without the need for additional CFP missions. Conducted at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, the successful tests were a collaborative effort with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, Fort Worth, Texas, and the U.S. Air Force.

    The AIDEWS pod is a self-contained integrated electronic countermeasures and radar warning receiver system designed to protect the F-16 Fighting Falcon from radio frequency (RF) threats. The pod system offers the flexibility to be installed or removed based on mission requirements, while greatly enhancing pilots’ situational awareness.

    “The AIDEWS pod provides the U.S. and its allies with a modular, highly capable and cost-effective survivability system for a range of fighter aircraft,” said Joe Rambala, vice president and general manager of the Exelis integrated electronic warfare systems business. “Achieving this certification will give more pilots access to the system’s advanced RF protection and the flexibility to meet the evolving RF threat.”

    Seek Eagle is the standard aircraft stores certification process for the U.S. Air Force. Through digital modeling, simulation and analysis, ground tests and flight tests, the process ensures that stores such as weapons, carriage and release equipment and external tanks and pods can fly safely on their respective platforms. The certification process includes verifying safe upload and download procedures, flight limits for safe carriage, employment, jettison and safe escape, and ballistic accuracy.

    The AIDEWS electronic self-protection system is produced at the Exelis facility in Clifton, New Jersey, and is part of a suite of EW technologies designed to enable domestic and international customers to perform their critical missions. Leveraging its decades of innovation and experience in the electromagnetic spectrum, Exelis has identified EW as one of the company’s four strategic growth platforms.

    USAF pilot killed in F-16 fighter crash in Gulf of Mexico
    7 November 2014

    [​IMG]

    The US Air Force (USAF) has recovered remains of the F-16 fighter pilot who died in a crash this week in the Gulf of Mexico.
    A part of the 53rd Weapons Evaluation Group at Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB), Florida, US, the F-16C fighter was conducting a routine training mission over the Gulf when it lost communication with the base on 6 November.
    The air force, along with US Coast Guard, immediately dispatched aircraft and rescue forces to the downed jet's last known location.
    The plane's parts were discovered nearly 60m from Panama City over the Gulf of Mexico.
    Tyndall AFB said in a statement: "Base efforts will now shift from that of a rescue mission to a recovery operation as evidence is collected to help in determining the cause of the crash.
    "A board of qualified officers has been assembled to conduct this investigation and no additional information about the accident will be released until the investigation is complete."
    The base has withheld the name of the pilot to allow for notification of his family.
    Manufactured by Lockheed Martin, the F-16 was initially designed as an air superiority day fighter, but later evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft for accurate delivery of ordnance during non-visual bombing conditions.
    "Base efforts will now shift from that of a rescue mission to a recovery operation."
    The single Pratt & Whitney F-100-GE-129 turbofan engine-powered jets are also operated by the air forces of Egypt, Iraq, New Zealand, South Korea and Chile, as well as Bahrain, Greece Singapore, Poland and the US.
    Meanwhile, an US Army Apache helicopter went down south of the Gowen Field Air National Guard Base, near Boise, last night.
    Idaho National Guard spokesman colonel Tim Marsano said two crew members were on board the helicopter and were conducting a night training mission.
    The condition of crew members and cause of accident remains unknown.

    Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Co., Fort Worth, Texas, has been awarded a $7,253,896 modification (P00068) to FA8615-07-C-6032 for F-16 production contracts. The total cumulative face value of the contract is $430,377,045. This modification incorporates a solution to solve a radar interoperability issue affecting F-16 aircraft produced for Pakistan and Thailand under the basic contract. Work will be performed at Fort Worth, Texas, and is expected to be completed by April 30, 2016. The contract supports 100 percent foreign military sales for Thailand and Pakistan. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center/WWMK, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity.
