    Talikng about weapons, Pakistan recently acquired F-7PG Jets from China.

    I saw this interesting report on UPI about this:
    http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=...2-113213-4284r

    The good news is that the Pakistan Air Force has finally phased out its 36-year-old U.S.-supplied F-6 aircraft and inducted a fleet of 22 F-7PG jets, newly acquired from China over the past three months. The bad news is that China's F-7 (although much modernized, and beefed up with a MiG-29 engine) is basically a venerable Soviet-era MiG-21 Fishbed, which first flew in 1955. With more than 8,000 produced, the MiG-21 remains by far the most popular combat aircraft of the jet age. China has been producing the F-7 for even longer than the Pakistanis have had the old F-6 jets. The problem was that the F-6s were simply wearing out. Pakistan has just 40 left of the original order of 180 -- and only China was prepared to replace them. "We owe a debt of abiding gratitude to the government of the People's Republic of China for keeping the Pakistan Air Force flying fit in difficult times," Pakistan's Chief Air Marshal, Mushar Ali Mir, told the ceremony at Quetta. What he did not say was that the new jet's weapon stations are patterned after those on the American-built F-16s Pakistan bought before they were hit with U.S. sanctions in 1990. How did the Chinese know how to match the F-16 fittings? Because Pakistan secretly transferred one to China for reverse engineering.
