ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Saturday received six new F-16 C/D Block 52 high tech aircraft from the United States.
The six new F-16s have brought the number of such fighter aircraft in the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) to 12.
Pakistan had signed a contract with the United States in 2005-2006 for the acquisition of 18 F-16 C/D Block 52 planes.
Under the agreement, the PAF would receive the 18 aircraft from the US in staggered batches.
Another batch of six F-16 C/D Block 52 aircraft is expected to be delivered to Pakistan in December 2010. — DawnNews/Agencies
