    1. May Allah tala bless Pakistan and our security forces Ameen and save us from ill intentions of enemies :( Ameen sum Ameen

    2. I hope they will publish the pictures of those terrorists so everyone can see there identity...

    3. What type of aircraft was damaged?

    4. It was already notified by Intelligence agencies that terrorists are planing to attack One of PAF Air Base, then why not the security was tightened more? But I'm confident that our SSW is Extremely Professional fighting forces and they managed to foil terrorists attack at one of the very Important Base. EVERYONE knows that these Modern JF-17 Thunders our neighbor can not digest the successful Transformation of PAF. And these Modern fighters are only Irritant to IAF/RAW. Pakistani authorities should warn to India if these kind of attacks are carried out by sponsored terrorists then answer will be like Mumbai attacks of which you are Afraid till today. PROUD OF PAF, AND PAKISTAN-CHINA FRIENDSHIP which can not be affected by these attacks.

    5. Saab-2000 was reportedly damaged in the attack, this aircraft will be repaired in-house by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex

    6. My dear,

      What i dont understand is anyone can fire a bunch of RPGs from outside the base and damage a few dozen aircraft there? What sort of base security is that? Same thing happened when karchi naval base was attacked -- exactly. When will we learn.

      If an outsider can throw an RPG and run away, no one would know who did that.

      I also dont understnad why our military installations tend to be in civilian areas all the time. Half of shara faisal karachi is army/navy/airforce installations in the midst of the city. Enter cantt. leave cantt. enter cantt. leaving cantt. these are the boards you see all over the city. Even the ordinance depot is clearly marked with directions on rashid minhas road.

      We also dont have city wide video systems that can tell us from where people came from the city, where they visited and their routes etc.

      We continue to debate drone attacks but never acquire drone technology to do video surveillance of our cities and critical defense installations.

      We are an illiterate and insensitive nation, living day to day and hour to hour.

    7. Hope pak aeronalitical complex personnels repair sab 2000 aircraft as soon as possible............

    8. can the other aircraft pc3-orion be also repair ....... is there any news about that...........
