On November 15, the International Defense Exhibition and Seminar 2022 (IDEAS-22) began in Karachi, Pakistan, presenting the latest advancements in the domestic defense industry and several products from global defense firms.
Amid Pakistan’s defense show, two photographs are doing rounds and causing a stir on the internet.
While a picture of the tail of an Indian MiG-21, allegedly shot down by a PAF F-16 fighter jet, is on display at IDEAS 2022, another image of PAF’s ‘indigenous’ JF-17C aka Block-3 variant also appeared on the internet.
The tail section of a MiG-21 of the Indian Air Force is on display at IDEAS-22 that was shot down on February 27, 2019, during Operation Swift Retort, by a Pakistani F-16. New Delhi and Islamabad made different statements about the event’s occurrence at the time.
India claimed it shot down a PAF F-16 aircraft, while Pakistan claimed its JF-17 had shot down Indian MiG-21 Bison and not the F-16.
Meanwhile, the J-17C’s informative photos, one of which also shows the cockpit, are being presented at the event. A video module of the aircraft is also showcased at PAF Pavilion during IDEAS 2022.
Pakistan’s JF-17C, also known as Block 3, is the latest version of the J-17 aircraft. The Chengdu Aircraft Corporation (CAC) of China and the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) collaborated to develop the medium-sized multi-role JF-17 ‘Thunder’ fighter aircraft for the Pakistan Air Force.
The service has received more than 100 Thunder jets since 2007.
