@Adnan Siddiqi: If we leave India out of the equation the PAF could use WWII Tiger Moths to do the job. Certainly Spitfires or Mosquito fighter/bombers. I would like to take an even bet that Mosquitoes would put up a very good performance against Indian jets. Unfortunately, the corporate industrial/military complex will find many reasons why this would not be so. At the latest 25 year dollar count about 1800 billion reasons. If we take a look at the childish skirmishes America/EU/UK/Australia have been involved in over the last 30 years or so WWII equipment would have been more than satisfactory. Better still it would have to everybody's advantage if there had been no wars, and that way many millions of dead and injured children would still be with us. Additionally, 1800 billion dollars would have paid for a lot of infrastructure. Unfortunately, it will not happen because the world is run by fools and sycophants who take their orders from above.
