PAF procures second SAB 2000 aircraft


Express April 24, 2010

LAHORE: The Pakistan Air Force received a second early warning SAAB 2000 aircraft from Sweden.

The aircraft is the second of four aircraft bought from Sweden. The SAAB 2000 landed at an operational base of the PAF on Saturday.

With the induction of the Swedish system, the PAF has become one of the few air forces in the world to have Airborne early warning capability.

Besides detecting high and medium altitude aircraft, the state-of-the-art system is also capable of detecting low-level flying objects over land and sea at extended ranges. The system is also capable of picking up surface targets over the sea.
