    Originating from the MiG-17 design the FT-5 was still used for training duties until early 2012. The Fighter Conversion Unit at Mianwali operated these oldies until they were replaced with K-8s.

    The Chinese built Y-12 has apparently found its way into all three services of the Pakistani Armed Forces. The Air Forces is believed to operate two (including this 96-035, flying for 41sq), while both the Navy and the Army should have two examples as well.

    Two squadrons (16sq and 26sq) are operating the NAMC Q-5III Fantan (locally known as A-5C). This aircraft, 3W-146, is operated by 16sq. This squadron is the second one to receive the replacement aircraft; the JF-17.

    Pakistan is a regular customer for Chinese products. The F-7, a MiG-21 derivative, is operated by a number of squadrons and locally known as F-7P. Apart from the F-7P, Pakistan is also operating the F-7PG since 2002.

    For training duties the Air Force received two batches of Tweety Birds. In total 67 T-37s were received, 28 T-37Bs (of which 22 are leased aircraft) and 39 T-37Cs, all former USAF examples. The remaining aircraft are all operated by the PAF Academy at Risalpur. They are scheduled for replacement by K-8 Karakorum.

    The F-6 Farmer was serving with two squadrons at Quetta until 27 March 2002, when they were replaced by the F-7PG. Whether this means that the trainer variant, the FT-6, is also on the verge of disappearance is not clear. A few of these, including this 10837, support the A-5 activities at Peshawar.

    Despite the rather impressive size of the country, it maintains a modest flying component for the Navy. The Navy uses different squadronnumbers for the different types of aircraft, but all operate from PNS Mehran. This F27-200MPA belongs to 27sq.

    Re: Pakistan Air Force - History & Information



    Country of Origin: China
    Type: Ground attack aircraft.
    Powerplants: Two 25.5kN (5732lb) dry and 31.9kN (7165lb) with afterburning Shenyang WP6 turbojets.
    Performance: Man speed at 36,000ft Mach 1.12 or 1190km/h (643kt), max speed at sea level 1210km/h (653kt). Max rate of climb at 16,400ft, 16,430 to 20,275ft/min. Service ceiling 52,000ft. Range with max internal and external fuel 2000km (1080nm).
    Combat radius with max external stores hi-lo-hi 600km (325nm), lo-lo-lo 400km (215nm).
    Weights: Empty 6375kg (14,054lb) max takeoff 12,000kg (26,455lb).
    Accommodations: Pilot only.
    Armament: Two Norinco Tpye 23 23mm cannons. Ten external hardpoints for a max ordnance load 2000kg (4410lb) including bombs, rockets, AAMs and ASMs. Some Chinese aircraft believed to be modified to carry a 5 to 20kT nuclear bomb.
    Operators: Bangladesh, China, Myanmar, North Korea, Pakistan.
    History: The Nanchang Q-5 (western designation A-5) is a close support/ ground attack fighter developed from China's Mig-19 copy.
    Development of the Q-5 began in 1958, with Shenyang undertaking initial work and mockup construction and assisting Nanchang with subsequent detail design.Construction of the first prototype began in May 1960 but the prototype program was cancelled in 1961. The program was reinitiated in 1963 and the first flight was on June 4 1965 and subsequent testing revealed the need for a number of modifications. The second two prototypes with the modifications flew in late 1969 and production aircraft were delivered from 1970.
    The Q-5 retains the rear fuselage and powerplants of the J-6, but features a stretched area ruled fuselage with an internal weapons bay, side mounted air intakes, a new conical nose and larger wings with less sweepback. Initial production was of the Q-5. The longer longer range Q-5 I has extra fuel in place of the internal weapons bay. Chinese Navy Q-5 Is may have been fitted with a radar and can carry C-801 anti ship missiles and torpedoes. The Q-5 IA gained two extra hardpoints and the Q-5 II is fitted with a radar warning receiver.

    The A-5C was develpoed for the Pakistan Air Force and is based on the Q-5 I but with upgraded western avionics and compatibility with western weapons. The export A-5K with Thompson-CSF laser rangefinder was cancelled in 1990. A-5M is also intended for export and features improved engines eith Alenia avionics based on those in the AMX including a ranging radar, INS, HUD, and RWR. It first flew in 1988, but none have been sold.
