Pakistan Air Force defense capability takes further stride as it inducts J10-C fighter aircraft to Pakistan Air Force (PAF). The launching ceremony held at Minhas Air Base Kamra was attended by federal ministers, three services chiefs, a Chinese ambassador in Pakistan, and members of the diplomatic community. The J10-C can be equipped with a bigger active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar than the one used by the JF-17 Block 3. The aircraft can carry more advanced, fourth-generation air-to-air missiles including the short-range PL-10 and the beyond-visual-range PL-15. The newly inducted craft J10-C is a fully integrated weapon, avionic and combat system, and its induction into PAF would further strengthen its professional capabilities. The new induction has further extended the aerial prowess of the Pakistan Air Force and to an extent, it has rang alarm bells in Delhi that tend to seek such developments as a real threat. The deceitful and coercive Indian regime is an overriding dilemma of the military-industrial complex. Indeed, Pakistan has credible conventional responses designed to meet different contingencies – known as the policy of ‘Quid Pro Quo Plus,’ which has not only reinforced the credibility of Pakistan’s nuclear deterrence but has also helped restore confidence in conventional deterrence. After experiencing humiliation at the hands of PAF in Feb 2019, India has gone on yet another arms and ammunition shopping spree, without realizing that it is in fact the man behind the machine and his strong nerves that matter. Indeed this is a moment of pride for entire nation as PAF remains resilient to ensure national security and sovereignty.
