I think instead of buying these expensive F16 Pakistan should concentrate on developing or assembling Chinese FC 10 figher as they are doing in the case of JF 17 Thunder fighter.

The most notable thing of these F16s is, they lack the things like this one (Desert Falcon),

I actually don't know what this thing is.

AsianDefence, can you please elaborate this?

PAF’s F-16 Block 52+ will have conformal fuel tanks like in picture but certainly nothing like AESA or other goodies from block 60

asian defense,
can the f16 AM/BM be compared with block 52??? meaning MLU f16 same to block 52??
