Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Tuesday inducted a new batch of J-10C fighter jets in its fleet to bolster the country’s aerial defence capabilities, the military’s media affairs wing said.

The development was announced in an induction and operationalisation ceremony held at an operational base of PAF.

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir attended the ceremony as chief guest. Upon his arrival at the base, he was received by Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Baber Sidhu, the chief of the air staff. The ceremony showcased the newly inducted weapon systems and defence assets of the PAF.

Addressing the ceremony, the COAS lauded the operational preparedness of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in incorporating state-of-the-art weapon systems, “substantially contributing to ensuring the balance of power in the region.”

During his speech, the air chief highlighted the latest inductions in the PAF’s arsenal comprising J-10C fighter jets, air mobility platforms, modern radars, unmanned aerial systems, loitering munition capabilities, and long-range vectors that have significantly bolstered the aerial defence capabilities of the country.

He also mentioned that the Center of Excellence for Air Mobility & Aviation Safety, College of Air Defence and reinvigoration of Air Power Centre of Excellence alongside the operationalisation of National Aerospace Science and Technology Park has provided PAF with the capability to “stay abreast with the evolving challenges.” CAS Sidhu emphasised the progress achieved by the PAF in the emerging domains of cyber and space technologies to ensure an impregnable defence of the country.

While emphasising the significance of indigenisation and human resource development, COAS Munir “wholeheartedly endorsed PAF’s dedication to technological advancements and operational excellence, reassuring that the Armed Forces of Pakistan are fully prepared to thwart any aggression.” He also appreciated the PAF’s efforts in the transportation of relief goods for the victims of the Gaza conflict.

Following the ceremony, an air show was conducted, featuring various PAF fighter jets, training aircraft and UAVs. The chief guest and the attendees later witnessed a static display showcasing the diverse PAF fighter, air mobility and UAV fleet.

"We'll eat grass but build the bomb" I suppose it's all those years of eating grass that we now raise no eye brows on border controls at civilian populated cantonments like Malir. 2nd grade pakistanis aka bloody civilians are forbidden to enter a civilian populated cantonment. The correct way is to apply for a permission aka 'visa' submit all the details and get approval from the 'state'. Who cares if the masters purchases a new 'car' aka J-10C even though he already has multiple and there is no prospect of a war for a vassal state. We will only use these when permit is received. Palestinians, Houthis and Afghanis take on world super powers with just kalma e shahadat and we with nukes sit cowering. Our reward is jannah /s

@JavedBhai , reason you are sitting and talking like this is due to this weaponry otherwise pol geo of pakistan would have dominated by powers similarly in iraq, palestine etc. So stop talking nonsense about cowardness, freedom has price and men are paying it with their blood and you got guts just to sit at home and talk ... If youre willing with your qalma then go and fight yourself at baloch and kp border

If the Indian genocide-evangelist were to comment or opine the ''showoff or eat grass'' sentiments for their country's state of human rights for minorities, poverty versus defence budget in newspapers, many would face a dead-reckoning. But then, they can enjoy themselves swinging in the trees while the real world moves on.

@momal, yes its easy to talk, like you do, but army is supposed to defend the country and its people. What's the use of such weaponry and armory if your army generals are sold out to foreign invasion and can't defend the public elected govt. If army is to lay down in front of such orders, better not to buy such exoensive weapons and just loot n plunder that money as well

@Sabir, "India will govern this region better than Pakistani establishment." Yes, all those mass graves and allegations of rape in the Kashmir valley have shown us all how effective you are at governing. Why are you even commenting on an article about PAF? Don't worry about our aircraft, I promise we won't stop you shooting down your own helicopters - that's pretty much all you're capable of doing anyway.
