AD remains a neglected area in Pakistan Defense Forces. Pakistan should invest more money for develop or acquire multi-layer air defense systems very quickly. What do you think? And what kind of system should Pakistan deploy?

It may be eaiser to buy Chinese HQ-9. But HQ-9 is not very advanced. However, Russians are always willing to sell S-300PMU. It is very very expensive to build multi-layer AD system for a big country like Pakistan. It is more practical for Pakistans to buy AWACS and more fighters. As for the AD system, leave it for big cities and the army troops.

Thanks for your comment…PAF is trying to acquire FT-2000 anti radiation AWACS Killer based on HQ-9 from China. Pakistan also looking to acquire KS-1 medium range SAM.

As far as hi-altitude is concerned, my first preference is Russian S-400. But Russians are not willing to sell the system to Pakistan. We have to wait until China develops this system indigenously.

What we really need to thwart any major aggressor like India or Uk is more advance fighters like Su-35 or F-18 superhornet.J-17 is a very good fighter but we need more of these types and advance types really fast.Our defense system is good at the moment and ur specifications have made me sure so we shud ignore it at the moment and more concentrate on fighters. -MOP

"What we really need to thwart any major aggressor like India or Uk" Is to simply not bother. No one wants to take over Pakistan, except a bunch of islamofascist lunatics. THEY are the enemy, not India, THEY do the bombs and the killing in Pakistan, not India, and when Pakistanis finally understand this, their nation will make real progress. But maybe the time is coming. Recent developments, including a historic meeting with Israel, shows that the Pakistani government is starting to understand. India does not want to conquer Pakistan. What would they do with it? The UK does not want to conquer Pakistan. The USA does not want to conquer Pakistan. Israel does not want to conquer Pakistan. AL QAEDA wants to Conquer Pakistan. What aircraft would best serve Pakistan dealing with this REAL problem?

Since we have this re-kindling of relations btw the US and Pakistan.  I think that Pakistan would benefit from the newer Patriot Missile Defense systems such as the type recently sold to Israel.  They offer considerable protection and are much more reliable than the earlier models.  Also, since the Pakistani's are already acquiring the Saab AWAC systems and more aircraft in the interceptor role, several Patriot II missile batteries would offer a good complement to this defensive need of Pakistan.
