Recently, few pictures have been surfacing on the internet by the Pakistan Airforce which imply that the fighter planes operated by PAF are to be painted in resemblance to the Mirage 5. 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.
Chengdu J-10C are China-made modern fighter aircrafts that were sent to Pakistan boost to the country’s military capabilities to defend airspace. The first batch of the combat aircraft was sent in March 2022. The batch was painted in a low-visibility gray color scheme. On March 23, the J-10Cs again flew over the Pakistan Day Parade. It is being said that the second batch of the jets will be delivered to Pakistan soon and will 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.
