Images making the rounds on social media imply that the second batch of Chengdu J-10C semi-stealth 4.5-gen advanced multi-role fighter planes operated by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) will be painted in tactical camouflage patterns resembling those used by the Mirage 5PA.
The most recent J-10Cs, according to specifics, have sky-blue undersides and a green-gray camouflage pattern. Similar in color, Mirage 5PAs have been employed in low-level maritime strike operations. This means that low-level maritime strike roles will also be utilised with the new J-10C aircraft.
The Chinese aerospace firm Chengdu Aircraft Corporation, which develops and produces combat aircraft, sent the PAF the first batch of J-10Cs in March of this year. This batch was painted in a low-visibility gray color scheme.On March 23, the J-10Cs again flew over the Pakistan Day Parade.
The initial report stated that Pakistan would get a total of 36 J-10C fighter jets from China in July of last year. The PAF would acquire 25 J-10Cs in the first batch and 11 in the second, according to Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, a former interior minister, who made the announcement in December of last year.
