ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Tuesday received first of its four Saab-2000 Airborne Early Warning and Control aircrafts from Sweden. According to PAF sources, the aircraft landed at one of the PAFs main operating bases, marking achievement of a major milestone in the overall modernisation plan of PAF. The sources informed that with the induction of Swedish AEWC system, PAF has become one of a few air forces in the world to have Airborne Early Warning capability. Besides detection of high and medium altitude flying aircraft, this state-of-the-art system is also capable of detecting low level flying objects over land and sea at extended ranges and of picking even the surface targets over the sea. By virtue of these features, PAF will be able to boost its operational capability manifold by achieving requisite early warning for efficient and meaningful air defence of its airspace.
