              Updated at 1850 PST

              ISLAMABAD: Two Fighter Aircrafts JF17s Thunder have been handed over to Pakistan, it was reported on Monday.

              The arrival ceremony of the JF-17s Thunder fighter aircraft, jointly developed by China and Pakistan was held at Pakistan Aeronautical Complex Kamra.

              Chief of the Air Staff Pakistan Air Force Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed was the chief guest at the ceremony which was attended by senior ranking officers of Pakistan Air Force and visiting Chinese delegation.

              The chief guest inspected the JF-17 Thunder aircraft and met the pilots, engineers and technicians. He greatly appreciated their hard work and devotion for translating a dream into reality.

              The two JF-17s had arrived in Pakistan in the first week of March, 2007.
              The chief guest, on his arrival at the ceremony, was received by Air Marshal Khalid Chaudhry, Chairman Pakistan Aeronautical Complex Board, Kamra and Air Vice Marshal Farhat Hussain, Chief Project Director JF-17.

              The JF-17 Thunder aircraft is scheduled to have its first public appearance in Islamabad, on March 23, during fly past of National Day Joint Services Parade.

              JF-17 Thunder aircraft is an advanced multirole Light Combat Aircraft jointly invested and developed by China and Pakistan. It is a key collaboration strategic project between two countries in the military field.

              The project has made great success through tremendous efforts and contribution by both sides.
              Air Chief Marshal Tanvir Mahmood Ahmed, Chief of the Air Staff Pakistan Air Force, was the Chief Guest on that historic occasion.

              The flight tests of prototype aircraft in China are moving forward smoothly.

              In order to speed up the development progress and to facilitate maturity of JF-17s, two aircrafts have arrived in Pakistan for further tests and flight evaluation by Pakistan Air Force.

              The flight evaluation to be conducted by PAF will be a great deal of help in improving the performance of aircraft and making the JF-17 aircraft more competitive and reliable.

                          Pakistan Selects Lockheed Martins Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod

                          The U.S. government has awarded a contract to Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] for 18 Sniper Advanced Targeting Pods (ATP), a part of the new Advanced Block 52 F-16 aircraft program for Pakistan. Pakistan is the eighth international customer to join the U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard flying with Sniper ATP. The contract includes spares and training services. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

                          This sale culminates a two year combined effort by Lockheed Martins Missiles and Fire Control and Aeronautics businesses to upgrade the precision attack capability of one of our key allies, said Ken Fuhr, director of Fixed Wing Targeting Programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. Sniper continues to demonstrate exceptional performance in meeting the requirements and expectations of the Warfighter.

                          With deliveries beginning in 2008, the Pakistan Air Force will benefit from Sniper ATPs exceptional stability and superior imagery, allowing aircrews to perform intelligence, targeting, surveillance and reconnaissance missions from extended standoff ranges.

                          The Pakistan Air Force joins the U.K. Ministry of Defence; the Canadian Forces, the Royal Norwegian Air Force; the Polish Air and Air Defense Force; the Royal Air Force of Oman; the Belgium Defence; and other international customers with its selection of the Sniper ATP.

                          Sniper ATP is currently flying on the U.S. Air Force and multinational F-15s, F-16s, F-18s, A-10s, B-1s and the Harrier GR9. Sniper ATPs have accumulated tens of thousands of flight hours in thousands of sorties in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

                          Sniper incorporates a high-resolution, mid-wave third-generation forward-looking infrared (FLIR), a dual-mode laser permitting eye-safe operation in urban environments, a CCD-TV along with a laser spot tracker and a laser marker. Sniper is fully compatible with the latest J-series munitions and precision-guided weaponry. Its superior detection ranges are vital to pilots, helping keep them out of range of threat air defenses.

                            These are presumably for the 18 Block 52 birds.
                            What targeting pods are planned for the 60 f-16 MLUs? If im not mistaken, PAF currently use LANTIRN and ATLIS. Same would continue are are they due to be changed as part of the MLU?

                              PAF doesnt use LANTIRN. For the MLU birds, there could always be a follow-up order for more Sniper pods

                                MLUed F-16s will also carry Sniper ATP. Check this DSCA notification.

                                  Makes sense. But i could have sworn they used LANTIRN. Mind playing tricks with me on me again me thinks.

                                  Any idea what the mirages and the A-5s use? Also, if all MLU f-16s get sniper as well, which squadrons gets the existing ATLIS 2?
