Pakistan Air Force successfully tests its air-to-air refuelling capability
Islamabad: The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has successfully tested its air-to-air refuelling capability, with its first air-to-air refuelling aircraft refuelling two fighter aircraft in the PAF’s inventory on Sunday.
The test was part of the ongoing High Mark-10 exercise.
The Daily Times quoted a senior PAF officer, as saying that the first air-to-air refuelling aircraft took active part in the exercises and ably refuelled two fighter aircraft in the PAF’s inventory.
The PAF is expecting delivery of three similar refuelling aircraft by June.
The officer said that the attainment of air-to-air refuelling capability has greatly enhanced PAF’s capability in defending the country’s airspace.
The High Mark-10 exercise is being conducted in a vast region spread from Skardu in the north to the Arabian Sea in the south.
The exercise has been tailored to include joint operations with extensive participation from the Pakistan Army and the Pakistan Navy.
High Mark-10 is aimed at conducting operations in near-realistic tactical environment.
